Deja Dead Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Deja Dead

Tempe Brennan is a forensic anthropologist in Montreal. Weekend plans to go to Quebec City are shot when a body is found, and she must go to the recovery scene. Dr. Brennan studies this mutilated skeleton and sees something the local police either do not see or do not want to acknowledge. This is not an isolated death. It is one in a series of brutal murders. Dr. Brennan must prove to the police that the deaths are connected by showing the similarities between the saw marks on the recovered skeletons. Hoping to stop the killer before he can strike again, Dr. Brennan often goes on her own to investigate different leads or hunches. In so doing, she places herself in grave danger.
The review of this Book prepared by Tracy Broemmer



on 11/29/2014 12:32:50 PM says: I liked that when there was action, it was heavy action. But I didn't like how some parts were dragged out and boring and I felt like "let's just get to the main point". Those parts were a tad confusing. But overall, a great read!
