Dy's Take

Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs

(30) Temperance Brennan #1

Yes, I totally ordered this from Paperback Swap because I’m a fan of Bones.

This was nothing like Bones — and it amused me to check out the reviews on Goodreads written by people who are also Bones fans and felt cheated by the book(s).

This reminded me most of early Cornwell — back when it was good and not all deep in the MC’s psyche and dealing with everyone’s neuroses to the point of plot yawning. .

I enjoyed the book, I liked that the character is, um, seasoned. The older I get the more I enjoy books with main characters who are not in their 20s. Shocking.

My biggest issue with the book was the excessive geography. I get that it’s in Montreal, but a sentence or two to give us the feel for the part of town she’s talking about is all I need, not driving directions. Other than that, it was a nifty mystery with, I thought, just the right amount of red herrings to keep it interesting.
