Cross Bones by Kathy Reichs


When an Orthodox Jew is murdered, a mysterious man shows up, bearing a black and white photo of a skeleton, claiming it is the reason behind the murder. In her research and collaboration with a colleague, Tempe retrieves the remains and heads to Israel. Her colleague seems to have his own agenda and keeps pushing the idea that they remains are from the “Jesus Family Tomb.” Controversy ensues.


I really enjoyed this one. I do like any work, fiction or nonfiction, which plays around with the Holy Family mythos. I also like that she shared information about the actual case that this was based on. Anyone interested in the possibility of an alternation version of the Holy Family—this book is for you!
