Welcome to my new and improved online newsletter. Strap in, because it’s going to be a big week! My new Temperance Brennan novel, Flash and Bones, releases tomorrow, August 22, 2011. When a body is found stuffed into a barrel of asphalt in the shadows of Charlotte Motor Speedway, Tempe must enter the sultry and dangerous world of NASCAR. As the clues unfold, the mysterious case soon involves political extremists, FBI agents, even the CDC, and it’s up to Tempe to decipher yet another riddle of the bones. I hope you enjoy reading this one as much as I did writing it!
Also releasing Tuesday is the paperback version of Virals, the first novel in my new series following the adventures of fourteen-year-old Tory Brennan, Tempe’s grandniece. Living on a secluded island just off the coast of Charleston, Tory and her rag-tag group of geeky friends are exposed to an experimental strain of canine parvovirus that changes their lives forever. With scrambled DNA and suddenly heightened senses and reflexes, the group must harness their newfound abilities to solve a cold-case murder. Now they’re more than friends: they’re a pack!
And be sure pre-order the second book in the Virals series, Seizure, releasing October 18!
