Bones Never Lie: A Novel (Temperance Brennan #17) by Kathy Reichs

In the early days I like others could hardly wait to get my hands on each new Temperance Brennan novel. Then, I just stopped bothering. This is my first Kathy Reichs in ages.
It was ok but not so gripping that my page turning barely kept up with my reading.
Brennan is confronted with her nemesis, the one that got away. I sussed on the killer's identity well before the end, with a few 'how could that be's.' All was pointing that way.
Still, the pace of the novel never let up. Brennan's introspection is telling and overall the story was interesting if slightly predictable in places. I loved the inclusion of her mother's help. 
p.s. I'm glad I don't live in Brennan's head.
