Kathy Reichs' Temperance "Tempe" Brennan is a forensic anthropologist in a series of novels written by Reichs. Reichs really draws on her anthropology to bring out the mystery clues behind the novel. Deadly Decisions surrounds the biker gangs of Canada to the US & the drug links therein. She takes you briefly through biker ganglang culture & how it relates to the murder victims & the scene itself. On majority of the Temperance Brennan novels I've scanned on the bookshelves, they're pitched as being "Better than Patricia Cornwell" I think this is an unfair assessment pitching her against Cornwell. Reichs forensic anthropologist Temperence Brennan can be compared with Cornwell's Kaye Scarpetta only in that they are both women in an otherwise dominant male world of forensics.
