"This book returns to the style of Reich’s earlier novels."
Temperance Brennan is called in when a young girl's body is found by the side of the road. The police officer investigating thinks it is an accident involving an illegal Latino prostitute, but Brennan thinks otherwise. As always, she tenaciously sticks to her belief and uncovers a web of abuse and international crime that even takes her to Afghanistan where her daughter is serving in the military. Always a defender of the underdog, Brennan doggedly and even foolishly puts herself in danger to find out the truth.
