Book Spotlight: Speaking in Bones by Kathy Reichs (Plus Giveaway!!!) - GIVEAWAY CLOSED

I am a huge fan of Kathy Reichs' Temperance Brennan series, which I am slowly making my way through - I'm up to book 11.  I was fortunate to have been able to see her again at BEA this  year where I was able to get an advanced copy of her latest book, Speaking in Bones, which comes out July 21. Because I prefer listening to this series on audio, I am giving away the signed copy of this book I picked up - which is an advanced copy...see below for details!

Title: Speaking in Bones   
Author: Kathy Reichs    
Series: Temperance Brennan, #18     
Published: July 2015, Bantam  

The latest blockbuster suspense novel in the pulse-pounding Temperance Brennan series, from #1 New York Times bestselling author and forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs.

For every case Temperence Brennance has solved, there remain innumerable unidentified bodies in her lab. Information on some of these is available online, where amateur sleuths sometimes take a stab at solving cases. One day, Tempe gets a call from Hazel “Lucky” Strike, a web sleuth who believes she’s successfully connected a body in Tempe’s lab to a missing persons report on an eighteen-year-old named Cora Teague. Since the bones in her lab do seem to match Cora’s medical records, Tempe looks into the case, returning to the spot where the bones were originally found. What seems at first to be an isolated tragedy takes on a more sinister cast as Tempe uncovers two more sets of bones nearby. When she then learns that the area is known as a viewing point for a famous unexplained light phenomenon with significance for a local cult, Tempe’s suspicious turn to murder by ritual sacrifice—a theory thrown into question when Hazel herself turns up dead. Still reeling from her mother’s diagnosis and the shock of Andrew Ryan’s potentially life-change proposal, Tempe races to solve the murders before the body count climbs further.
