Devil Bones by Kathy Reichs

Kathy Reichs is the real-life forensic anthropologist who writes thriller books about a forensic anthropologist (as opposed to Patricia Cornwell who is an author who writes books about . . . a forensic anthropologist.)

Devil Bones is Reichs' latest book. They are all written to a formula but it is a good formula. If you like that sort of thing. I do. Murder, mystery and mayhem and lots of opened-up bodies and bones etc. in Charlotte, North Carolina. Plus a group of good quality characters who provide continuity from book to book.

The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson

A good thriller and a natural and enjoyable sequal to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. But somehow it is easier to live with all the Swedish names. I'm ready for the last one in the triology now but I'd better read something else for a change

You must read them in the right order.
