On a bitterly cold March night in Montreal, forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is exhuming the remains of a nun in the grounds of an old church.
Hours later, Tempe is called to the scene of a horrifying arson. A young family has perished, but there is no explanation, no motive, and no witnesses.
From the charred remains of the inferno, to a trail of sinister cult activity, Tempe faces a nerve-shattering case which will test her forensic expertise - and her instinct for survival.
Death du Jour begins with a fire that has Tempe smack in the middle of another murder investigation. Add in her sister (who is crazy) coming to town, and maybe getting it on with Andrew Ryan, who Tempe isn't sure why that would bother her, to more problems ahead and she is in for another wild ride and crazy case.
This book was not nearly as good as the first one, and that was highly disappointing. I also really hated the fact that certain question weren't answered about Ryan and Tempe's sister, and I was again annoyed with the fact that Tempe and her husband are "separated" yet not divorced. That drives me up the wall.
Other than that it was a nice mystery story and I did like it, but it just wasn't as good as the first one.
