Bestseller Reichs returns with her 16th installment (after Bones Are Forever, 2012) featuring forensic anthropologist Temperence Brennan, whose examination of a teenage hit-and-run victim on a desolate highway triggers an investigation into human trafficking. Brennan must also inspect a bundle of Peruvian dog mummy bones confiscated by U.S. Customs, which were possibly smuggled into the country by Desert Storm veteran Dominick Rockett. Could there be a connection between the trafficking of antiquities and the trafficking of people?
