Nøj, jeg har været længe om at komme igennem denne lydbog, som var del 2 med de to politifolk Nikolaj og Katrine – og så 20 mio. andre mennesker..

Om bogen fra mofibo.com:
SORT SNE FALDER er en højdramatisk konspirationsthriller. Da den skandaleramte politiker Peter Levin bliver udsat for et attentatforsøg, vendes et knusende valgnederlag til en sympatisejr for det lille midterparti Demokratisk Koalition. Partiet får magten til at vælge landets næste statsminister. PET-chef Nikolaj Storm og kriminalkommissær Katrine Bergman fra drabsafdelingen efterforsker attentatet, der peger mod miljøkaktivister på den yderste venstrefløj. Men da liget af den myrdede attentatmand dukker op, fører efterforskningen frem til en hemmelig loge, som også Storms afdøde far, den afdøde arkitekt Herman Storm, var en del af. Men hvem er menneskerne bag logen, hvor langt rækker deres magt, og hvilken storstilet plan, som vil ændre Danmark for altid, er de i færd med at gennemføre?

#24 Monday Mourning (Kathy Reichs)

Endnu et bind om Temperance Brennan, hvor der optræder virkelig mange mennesker, og hvor Temperance bliver overfaldet og heldigvis reddet i sidste øjeblik.. igen.. Tror, jeg holder en kort pause fra serien, for de er liiiiiige ens nok p.t., selvom temaet her var meget relevant og uhyggeligt…

Om bogen fra mofibo.com:
Internationally acclaimed forensic anthropologist and New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs explores the Stockholm syndrome – the psychology of a captive submitting to the ideology of a captor – in this mesmerizing new thriller. Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropologist for both North Carolina and Quebec, has come from Charlotte to Montreal during the bleak days of December to testify as an expert witness at a murder trial. She should be going over her notes, but instead she’s digging in the basement of a pizza parlor. Not fun. Freezing cold. Crawling rats. And now, the skeletonized remains of three young women. How did they get there? When did they die? Homicide detective Luc Claudel, never Tempe’s greatest fan, believes the bones are historic. Not his case, not his concern. The pizza parlor owner found nineteenth-century buttons in the cellar with the skeletons. Claudel takes them as an indicator of the bones’ antiquity. But something doesn’t make sense. Tempe examines the bones in her lab and establishes approximate age with Carbon-14. Further study of tooth enamel tells her where the women were born. If she’s right, Claudel has three recent murders on his hands. Definitely his case. Detective Andrew Ryan, meanwhile, is acting mysteriously. What are those private phone calls he takes in the other room, and why does he suddenly disappear just when Tempe is beginning to hope he might be a permanent part of her life? Looks like more lonely nights for Tempe and Birdie, her cat. As Tempe searches for answers in both her personal and professional lives, she finds herself drawn deep into a web of evil from which there may be no escape. Women have disappeared, never to return…Tempe may be next. With its powerful mix of nail-biting suspense and cutting-edge forensic science, Monday Mourning is the best yet from this superbly gifted, megastar author who, as New York Newsday says, is “the real thing.”

Åh, jeg synes altså stadig, der er virkelig mange mennesker i alle disse bøger om Temperance Brennan.. har svært ved at skille den ene person fra den anden, måske også fordi jeg har læst så mange i træk? Anyway.. OK underholdning, som blev læst på vores seneste ferie :o)

World-class forensic anthropologist and New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs explores international endangered species trafficking in this electrifying new thriller that brings Temperance Brennan back to her home base in North Carolina where several sets of bones, both human and animal, lead her on a terrifying hunt for a killer. It’s a summer of sizzling heat in Charlotte where Dr. Temperance Brennan, forensic anthropologist for the North Carolina medical examiner, looks forward to her first vacation in years. A romantic vacation. She’s almost out the door when the bones start appearing. A newborn’s charred remains turn up in a woodstove. The mother, Tamela Banks, hardly more than a child herself, has disappeared. Did she kill her infant, or is an innocent teenager also about to become a victim? A small plane crashes in a North Carolina cornfield on a sunny afternoon. Both pilot and passenger are burned beyond recognition. Was it pilot error? Something more sinister? And what is the mysterious black substance covering the bodies? Most puzzling of all are the bones discovered at a remote farm outside Charlotte. What has Tempe’s dog, Boyd, unearthed? The remains seem to be of animal origin, but Tempe is shocked when she gets them to her lab. With help from a special detective friend, Tempe must investigate a poignant and terrifying case that comes at the worst possible moment. Is it time for emotional commitment? Will she have the chance to find out? Everything must wait on the bones. What story do they tell? Why are the X-rays and DNA so perplexing? Who is trying to keep Tempe from the answers? Someone is following her. Someone is following Katy. That someone must be stopped before it’s too late. With the riveting authenticity that only world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs can bring to her fiction, Bare Bones asks important questions and thrills us to its pulsating end. Fresh from the success of Grave Secrets , Reichs proves once again that she is the consummate crime-writing star.
