Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

The secrets of the dead are in her hands. 

The bones of three young women are unearthed in the basement of a Montreal pizza parlor, and forensic anthropologist Tempe Brennan has unsolved murder on her mind as she examines the shallowly buried remains. Coming up against a homicide cop who is convinced the dead have been entombed on the site for centuries, Tempe perseveres, even with her own relationship with Detective Andrew Ryan at a delicate turning point. In the lab, the clean, well-perserved bones offer few clues. But when Carbon 14 confirms her hunch that these were recent deaths despite the antique buttons found near the bodies, Tempe’s probing must produce answers quickly to stop a killer whose grisly handiwork has seen the light of day.

Manas pārdomas/My thoughts

Kad kādā Kanādas picērijas pagrabā tiek atrastas trīs sieviešu mirstīgās atliekas, tas nozīmē automātisku zvanu izcilajai antropoloģei Temperansai Brenanai. Un tieši viņa ir tā, kurai lemts izlemt to, vai atrastie kauli pieder citam gadsimtam un tādejādi nododami arheologiem, vai arī salīdzinoši neseni upuri un līdz ar to darbs izmeklētājiem un viņai.

Kārtējo reizi kļūstam par lieciniekiem konfrontācijām starp Brenanu un detektīvu Klaudelu, kurš vienmēr zina labāk un lai kā gribētu, nevar saprast kam tādi kā Brenana viņa darba sfērā vispār nepieciešami. Abi ir labi savā profesijā, bet tādi nu sanākuši raksturi! Kamēr Klaudels grib ātri pieņemt pirmo piedāvāto variantu un lietu slēgt, Brenana iesaistās dziļi aktīvajā izmeklēšana, jo nespēj ignorēt instinktu (un vecas lēdijas telefonzvanu). Noziegumi, kas šķērso arīdzan kaimiņvalsts robežu, un gaida, lai tos beidzot atrisinātu.

Ar katru sērijas grāmatu ir aizvien grūtāk saprast, kāpēc Brenana vēl turpina attiecības ar detektīvu Raienu. Kad viņa nav klāt Brenanas domas nereti aizklīst pie viņa, bet gandrīz katru reizi, ieraugot Raienu, iekāri aizvieto dusmas, neizpratne (un pārpratumi) un drusku neiecietības. Brenanas nespēja saprast, ko pati beigu beigās vēlas, kļūst nedaudz apnicīga; + nabaga Raiens, kuram pēc tam arī jāspēj izlobīt no tā visa, ko Brenana jūt un grib.

Monday Mourning sniedz jau ierasto un to, ko var sagaidīt no Temperance Brennan grāmatām kā noziegumu izmeklēšanas maniere un attiecību drāma, un dižus pārsteigumus nesagādā.

***************************************

When in the basement of a pizzeria are found bones of three different women it means a call to the greatest anthropologist out there – Temperance Brennan. And Brennan will be the one to decide if they are from a different century and belong to archeologist or are they quite recent victims, meaning a job for detectives and her.

Once again we become witnesses to confrontations between Brennan and detective Luc Claudel, who always knows better and as much as he would want cannot understand what people like Brennan are needed for. Although both are good at their jobs, their characters are sometimes their own enemies! While Claudel quickly has decided they should inform some museum and close their case, Brennan actively pursues her gut feeling (and a phone call from old lady) that tells her Claudel is wrong. These crimes have crossed their neighbor country’s border from and are waiting to be solved.

With each book in this series it’s becoming harder for me to understand the motive for Brennan to continue her relationship with detective Andrew Ryan. When he isn’t around she is crazy for him, but when he is, those feelings are replaced by anger, uncertainty (and misunderstandings) and impatience. If she can’t figure out what she wants, how can the poor Ryan make sense out of her mixed signals?

Monday Mourning gives the usual of what you can expect from Temperance Brennan books, like the style of crime solving and relationship drama, and doesn’t have any big surprises hidden.
