���Bones Never Lie��� dredges up a troubling case from Brennan���s past, as she is called into the Charlotte Police Department���s Cold Case Unit for consultation on a serial killer who eluded her years ago and may be killing again.

Hot on the trail of a vicious serial killer, Brennan quickly realizes that the investigation is putting her own family at risk.

���Devil Bones��� begins with a renovating plumber���s grisly discovery: a secret room beneath a house containing evidence of religious ceremonies and the skull of a teenage girl. When the skull of another teen is found at a nearby lake, citizen vigilantes become anxious, mounting a witch hunt for the suspected Satan worshippers. Brennan must navigate complex local politics and the forensic difficulties of the crime scenes to solve the mystery.
