Bones of the Lost by Kathy Reichs (May 2015)

The body of a teenage girl is discovered along a desolate highway on the outskirts of Charlotte.  Insider her purse is the ID card of a local businessman who died in a fire months earlier.

But who is the girl?  And was she murdered?

Dr Temperence Brennan, forensic anthropologist, must find the answers.  She soon learns that a Gulf War veteran stands accused of smuggling artefacts into the country.  Could there be a connection between the two cases?

Convinced that the girl's death was no accident, Tempe uncovers a conspiracy that extends from South America to Afghanistan.  But to find justice for the dead she must be more courageous, and take more extreme action, than ever before.
