Manas pārdomas

Kad Brenana piekrīt detektīva lūgumam, aplūkot skeletu, kuru gadus atpakaļ divi ‘’mākslinieki’’ nopirka no lombarda, kura īpašnieks savukārt to iegādājās no pašpasludināta arheologa, tas atsauc atmiņā vasaras pirms vairāk kā 30 gadiem un drusku eksotisko, frankofonisko draudzeni, kura pēkšņi un bez atvadām vienkārši pazuda.

Manas pārdomas

Ja četras grāmatas atpakaļ Brenanai bija tā laime atrast ‘’svaigas’’ mirstīgās atliekas arheoloģisko izrakumu laikā Gvatemalā, tad 9.sērijas grāmatā tas notiek turpat mīļajā ASV. Bet pirmais līķis ir tikai sākums! Atliek vien pirms tam atvadīties no studentiem. :D

Kathy Reichs – Monday Mourning (Temperance Brennan #7) (Audio book)

181116

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.

Pirmdienas teikums ir mana versija par Bonespark~ “Sunday Sentence”, kurā tiek izcelts teikums no tā, kas iepriekš izlasīts.

Changing from my warm woolies to surgical gloves, I leaned in and began teasing free an edge, gingerly separating, lifting, then rolling the leather backward onto itself.

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

“Fans of TV’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven” (People) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs’ electrifyingly authentic bestsellers.

A harrowing excavation unearths a chilling tragedy never laid to rest.

They are “the disappeared,” twenty-three massacre victims buried in a well in the Guatemalan village of Chupan Ya two decades ago. Leading a team of experts on a meticulous, heartbreaking dig, Tempe Brennan pieces together the violence of the past. But a fresh wave of terror begins when the horrific sounds of a fatal attack on two colleagues come in on a blood-chilling satellite call. Teaming up with Special Crimes Investigator Bartolomé Galiano and Montreal detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe quickly becomes enmeshed in the cases of four privileged young women who have vanished from Guatemala City — and finds herself caught in deadly territory where power, money, greed, and science converge.

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Investigating a plane crash in the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan discovers in a most disturbing way that the evidence doesn’t add up. Tripping over a coyote-chewed leg at the crash scene, she performs a little mental arithmetic and realizes that this victim wasn’t on the plane. Once again, Brennan’s high-tech DMORT snaps into action faster than you can say “Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team.” The author of Death du Jour serves up another exquisite meal.

Kathy Reichs – Death du Jour (Temperance Brennan #2)

128756

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

Assaulted by the bitter cold of a Montreal winter, the American-born Dr. Temperance Breman, Forensic Anthropologist for the Province of Quebec, digs for a corpse where Sister Elisabeth Nicolet, dead over a century and now a candidate for sainthood, should lie in her grave. A strange, small coffin, buried in the recesses of a decaying church, holds the first clue to the cloistered nun’s fate. The puzzle surrounding Sister Elisabeth’s life and death provides a welcome contrast to discoveries at a burning chalet, where scorched and twisted bodies await Tempe’s professional expertise. Who were these people? What brought them to this gruesome fate? Homicide Detective Andrew Ryan, with whom Tempe has a combustive history, joins her in the arson investigation. From the fire scene they are drawn into the worlds of an enigmatic and controversial professor, a mysterious commune, and a primate colony on a Carolina island.

Mana recenzija/My review

Temperansai Brenanai pašai par prieku ir iespēja padarboties ar vēsturiska apbedījuma pētīšanu un ekshumāciju, un sērijas otrā grāmata iesākas ar cerību, ka varētu būt labāka nekā pirmā.

Lieta, kurā piesaista Brenanu, saistīta ar dedzināšanu, un līķu skaits nav nekāds mazais. Turklāt divi no tiem vien četrus mēnešus veci mazuļi. Redzētais šokē pat pieredzējušākos detektīvus.

Lasītājam ļauts vairāk iepazīt Brenanas meitu Keitiju, kura savā ziņā seko mātes profesionālajās pēdās un nemazām nebaidās no līķu tuvuma. Uzzinām arī to, ka Brenanai ir māsa Harieta jeb vienkārši Harija, par ko iepriekšējā grāmatā nav nekāda mājiena.

Brenana savas pasniedzējas karjeras dēļ spiesta iegriezties ASV, un tiek nepatīkami pārsteigta, ka viņai lemts atkal atrast slepkavības upuri. Mazliet neticami, ka šis atradums saistīts ar izmeklēšanu Kanādā. Šī saistība liek ierasties detektīvam Endrū Raienam. Ar viņu bija saistīta mana prognoze par romantisko līniju, bet vismaz pagaidām tas atstāts vēlākam. Izmeklēšanas virzieni aizved viņus līdz sektai, kura no malas un pēc pašu biedru teiktā ir pats labākais, kas ar viņiem noticis. Brenana vēlreiz izmeklēšanā iesaistās pamatīgāk, kā pēc viņas profesijas vajadzētu; papildus uztraukumiem, ko tas sniedz, viņai pamatīgas raizes sagādā māsa – saistībā ar sektu.

Lai gan drusku mazāk, bet arī Death du Jour ir nedaudz par daudz zinātniskās valodas. Arī stāsta līniju par daudz un kopējais sižets uzreiz šķita saskaldīts un juceklīgs. Noslēgumā bija sajūta, ka dialogs izveidots mākslīgs, lai tikai visas stāsta līnijas savestu kopā un nolīdzinātu jebkādas palikušās neskaidrības.

Cerams, turpinājumi paliks labāki.

                                                                                                                                           

Temperance Brennan finally has a chance to apply her anthropologic skills outside her job with recent murder victims. She’s hired to examine a nun’s body which soon might get a title of saint. So the beginning of the books is promising.

The next case in which Brennan participates is arson and includes five bodies. Shockingly two of them are just four months old babies. Even the most experienced detectives are horrified by the sight.

The reader has a chance to get more acquainted with Brennan’s daughter Katy. She in a way follows her mother’s professional footsteps and isn’t grossed out (too much) by being too close to a body. We find out that Brennan has a sister Harriet or just Harry; that was a little surprise because there were no hints about it in the first book.

Brenan lecturer’s carrier makes her to travel back to USA, and she gets unpleasantly surprised as she on her holidays from work in Canada finds two more jobs which magically are connected to the arson case. This connection is the reason why detective Andrew Ryan has to come down. He was one of the characters about my romantic story line prognosis; but it seems that that will be reserved for later. The investigation leads them to a reclusive sect. From aside everything looks fine and no member is complaining. Once again Brennan does more than in her job description; additionally anxiety which it brings, she also starts to worry about her sister.

Although not so much but Death du Jour still had too much scientific language. Also the book had a bit too much story lines and the overall plot was too divided and chaotic. Plus, dialogs at the end were too simple and artificial. I had the feeling that the author tried too hard to explain everything and anything that possibly was still unclear.

Hopefully the sequels in this series are better.
