FLASH! Illuminated by lightning, a lifeless human hand seems to reach from a barrel of asphalt beside the Charlotte racetrack. Even for forensic anthropologist Dr Tempe Brennan it is a disturbing sight. And now she must find answers before thousands arrive for the year's big race. But before she can carry out a proper examination, the FBI mysteriously confiscate and destroy the body. It's a dead end. Until a young engineer alerts Tempe to the disappearance of his sister and her boyfriend from Charlotte twelve years earlier, and she determines to uncover what really happened to them. Soon after, the engineer's body is found crushed under the wheels of a race car. Tempe realises the situation is truly sinister - and that even her own life could be in terrible danger.

Review quote

"Reichs has crafted a novel likely to appeal to NASCAR lovers as well as thriller aficionados."--"Charlotte Observer" "Reichs knows what her readers like, and she has another hit with "Flash and Bones"...a compelling read that will appeal to anyone who likes reading forensic thrillers."--"Associated Press" "A fine entry in a consistently solid series."--Booklist "Welcome to Bones 101...writing novels seems to be embedded in [Reichs'] family's DNA. "--USA Today "Reichs imbues this fusion of past and present with her signature blend of forensic know-how and deeply felt characters."--Publishers Weekly "I love a good mystery and have been fascinated by forensic science long before starting work on the show "Bones". So I am a big fan of Kathy's books. I love the character of Temperance Brennan, her strong spirit and intelligence, and the humor in the book series."--Emily Deschanel
