When Dr Temperance Brennan is called to Chicago to answer questions on an old case involving the death of a lonely but wealthy woman, the last thing she expects is to have her professional assesment questioned by a lawyer who barely knows his X from X [arse from elbow].
Taking the opportunity to catch up with family while in Chicago, Tempe then ends up being drawn into a missing person's case that she fears will only end in bad news.
Meanwhile, back in Montreal the bodies of a trio of elderly women have been discovered. One is found In a shallow grave. One in the woods. One burned in her country cabin. Tempe's convinced there must be a link between their violent deaths.
