Before I started reading this book I thought that the TV show 'Bones' that was based on these books, I didn't realize they were just the inspiration. So I spent the first chapters trying to figure out who was who - other than Dr. Temperance Brennan none of the characters were the same. Once I figured that out and just read the book as a book, it started to become pretty interesting. Even though the only thing Brennan shares with her TV self is their name, I kept picturing Emily Deshenel in each situation in the book. Besides my issues separating the TV show from the book, I thought this book was pretty good. I would definitely look into reading the rest of the Bones books.
