Though none of her "staff" played a meaningful role in the book, it took place in Chicago and since I have more than a working and playing knowledge of Chicago, it may it even more enjoyable. The case against the Gianelli family is put on hold. The author, Max Collins, has nothing to do with the TV show, and it is so very obvious that he has none of the education and sophistication of the show's writers. It is a good story and keeps true to the characters we know in the TV series.

Max Allan Collins, a mystery writer who has also written some of the CSI books has only done one in the Bones universe as of this date. His character was a strange mix of the TV show character (completely unable to get pop-culture references) and the pre-existing Kathy Reichs novels (there's a reference to Dr Brennan's ex-husband Pete, likely to confuse those who haven't read the novels). You're listening to a sample of the Audible audio edition. I loved how Reichs explained what was going on, getting into the details without giving things away. His character was a strange mix of the TV show character (completely unable to get pop-culture references) and the pre-existing Ka.

I am totally loyal to Booth, like a dog to its owner, so when i look through the book description and only see things about this Ryan guy, i literally growl.

Kathy Reichs wrote a series of books featuring Temperance Brennan, and those books provided the loose framework for the TV series.

The plot had potential but the ending was such a let down and the dialog at times was so...high school. These characters are sort of shallow and it's not her style of writing.

That’s right ‘Bone: Buried Deep’ is a tie in novel to the bastardisation of the characters developed by Kathy Reichs.

Therefore it is misleading to name Reichs as (co-)author. The case against the Gianelli family is put on hold.
Tempe determines the bones are from different corpses, suggesting a serial killer's h. Tempe's work at the Jeffersonian Institute is put on hold when Special Agent Seeley Booth, stalled on a case deposing a Chicago mob family, calls her in to assist with a bizarre discovery: a plastic bag of skeletal remains -- and a chilling note -- left on the steps of a federal building.

Pretty much the same as the show (early seasons?)

However, this book was quite a disappointment to me.

It gets bonus points for being set in Chicago (where I was born and raised) but otherwise it was mediocre fanfiction at best.

FBI agent Seeley Booth was making progress on his chicago mob case against the Gianelli family until a bag containing a skeleton with a note came in front of the FBI building.
