THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER and #1 GLOBE AND MAIL BESTSELLER Producer of the FOX television hit Bones KATHY REICHS exposes the high-stakes, high-danger world of diamond mining as Dr. Temperance Brennan tracks a murder suspect deep into the Northwest Territories. Beneath a diamond's perfect surface lies a story of violence and greed. Just like bones. . . . In a run-down Montreal apartment, Tempe finds the heartbreaking evidence of three innocent lives ended. The landlord says Alma Rogers lives there—is she the same woman who checked into a city hospital as Amy Roberts, then fled before doctors could treat her uncontrolled bleeding? Is she Alva Rodriguez, sought by a man who appeared at the crime scene? Heading up an investigation crackling with the sexual tension of past intimacies, Tempe leads homicide detective Andrew Ryan and police sergeant Ollie Hasty along the woman's trail and into the farthest reaches of mining country—an unforgiving place where the grim industry of unearthing diamonds exacts a price in blood. And where the truths the unlikely trio uncovers are more sinister than they could have imagined.

This is the first book to offer a critical analysis of one variant of the mystery story or novel—the use of a physician as the major detective. There is little difference between a medical “case study” and a mystery story. The book reviews the works of major authors, from R. Austin Freeman, Helen McCloy, Josephine Bell, and H.C. Bailey, to Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, Aaron Elkins, and Colin Cotterill, with briefer reviews of minor authors. It also addresses historical (fictional) physician detectives, psychological detectives, and physician detective nonfiction. Physicians and health workers are avid readers of detective fiction and will welcome this volume, which addresses their specific interests. Its critical analysis of books that have long been viewed as central to detective fiction will also appeal to fans of the mystery story.

Gather the family and spend some time with your best friend—the Bible! From best-selling author Sheila Walsh, the Bible Is My Best Friend Family Devotional connects families both to God's Word and to each other. Fifty-two key scriptures form the basis for the devotions, which build on the verses, challenge the family to commit them to memory, and explore how each verse is part of God's wonderful message. "Let's Talk" questions urge the family to discuss what they've learned and offer challenges for different ages of children as well as their parents. This unique family devotional touches both the mind and the heart. Minds will grow as the text builds on past weeks by reviewing memory work and themes. But most importantly, hearts will grow as families learn together to value the gifts found in the Bible and realize how God's Word can be their greatest friend.

A deeply personal exploration of Australia’s colonisation past, present and future by one of Australia's finest contemporary authors This is a difficult piece to write. It cuts closer to the bone than most of what I have written; closer to my bones, through my blood and flesh to the bones of truth and country; there is truth here, not disguised but in the open and that truth hurts. In Lies, Damned Lies acclaimed author Claire G. Coleman, a proud Noongar woman, takes the reader on a journey through the past, present and future of Australia, lensed through her own experience. Beautifully written, this literary work blends the personal with the political, offering readers an insight into the stark reality of the ongoing trauma of Australia’s violent colonisation. Colonisation in Australia is not over. Colonisation is a process, not an event – and the after-effects will continue while there are still people to remember it. PRAISE FOR CLAIRE G. COLEMAN ‘An urgent examination of oneself and one’s country. Written with a booming cadence that demands to be read aloud, again and again.’ – Tara June Winch, Miles Franklin Award winning author of The Yield ‘You may think you’re woke, but Coleman never sleeps.’ – Dr Tyson Yunkaporta, bestselling author of Sand Talk ‘Coleman is unflinching.’ – Sydney Review of Books on Terra Nullius​ ‘Coleman stuns with this imaginative, astounding debut about colonisation.’ – Publishers Weekly on Terra Nullius ‘A powerful, sobering piece of writing that makes us face an Australia we try to forget, but should always remember.’ – Adelaide Review on Terra Nullius ​

She could be anybody’s daughter, sister, friend. But no one knew the secrets her fatal injuries reveal. . . . An unidentified teenage girl is struck down and left to die along a stretch of Charlotte, North Carolina, highway. In the lab, the bruise patterns tell Tempe that this hit-and-run was no accident. Meanwhile, Tempe is called on to analyze a bizarre shipment confiscated by U.S. Customs—mummified Peruvian dogs, antiquities that may have been smuggled in by a Desert Storm vet. Two disparate cases, too many mysteries, and turmoil in her personal life push Tempe to the brink. Then a chilling link emerges between the South American artifacts, the death of a prominent Charlotte businessman whose name turned up in the dead girl’s purse, and the nightmare reality of human trafficking . . . and Tempe must race to protect her community, her family, and herself.
