In book four of the Temperance Breenan series we have an airline disaster. A plan filled with the male and female soccer teams goes down and the story goes from there.
Temperance is brought in to help with the recovery effort but that is not the problem. The problem is while out on a walk she runs into a coyote with a foot in its mouth. She managed to get the foot from the animal only to realize that it is too decomposed to be from the plane crash.
Tempe goes through a lot in this book. From being accused of tampering with evidence to uncovering more and more facts that led to a shattering conclusion this tale is a fast and hard read. There is a lot going on here and we meet a lot of interesting characters in this book.
This book was written before 9/11 and the author includes an afterward that explains how she knows so much about DMORT and the fact that she was in no way cashing in on the national disaster and heartbreak of that time.
A great piece of a literary work of art.
