193. Waking the Dead by Kylie Brant...

October 30, 2009
waking the deadAbout the book:
Former forensic anthropologist Caitlin Fleming knows bones. So the investigator is the first one called when seven sets of skeletal remains are found dumped in a makeshift graveyard in the Oregon wilderness. Each skeleton bears the same distinctive marks. And each is minus a skull.

Cait needs outdoors guide Zach Sharper for one reason only-—to help her find her way through the Willamette Forest as she pieces together clues. Despite the attraction that burns between them, nothing will be allowed to shake her focus. Until the killer closes in to terminate the investigation... and the ones on the verge of unmasking him...

drey's thoughts:
This is the third Mindhunters novel from Kim Brant. I flew through this one just about as quickly as I flew through the other two.

Caitlin Fleming is a former cover-girl turned forensic expert. She is very aware of how her looks impact those she interacts with, but is more interested in getting the job done. And when she's called onto a site where there's nothing left of the victims but the bones, boy does she have a job to do.

Waking the Dead is just as tightly-written as Waking Nightmare and Waking Evil. The characters are interesting, and the romance doesn't push everything else in the story to the backseat. I can't wait to see what comes next.
