Swamp Bones by Kathy Reichs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Temperance Brennan is looking forward to a couple of days vacation in Florida. She is visiting a friend, Lisa Robbin, that works as an ornithologist that are researching the treat of the intrusive Burmese pythons has on the indigenous bird species in the Everglades. But Brennan finds in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Python something else than bird bones...human bones...
This is a short novella prequel to Bones never lies. As usual good written and educational, I learned a lot about Florida, pythons and birds. As it is a short story it has never really time to really draw the reader in, well not me anyway. Also strangely for being a short story it felt a bit long. I liked the story, I mean finding bones in a python, alligators, finding out who the bones belonged to and finding the culprit. Actually, when I think about it it was as ordinary Bones episode. Entertaining for the moment and then on to something else.
