206 Bones by Kathy Reichs

The television series "Bones" is based on this series of books. Temperence Brennan is a Forensic Pathologist in Montreal, Canada. Tempe, as she is known, and her ex-and maybe again-boyfriend Lieutenant Ryan are investigating a series of murders involving elderly women. Tempe finds her work being sabotaged, nasty letters and phone calls, and even a broken window at her condo are taking their toll on her but it isn't until she is abducted that things really get bad.
I haven't watched the tv series but thought that it sounded good, just don't have the time to watch, so I was intrigued by this book and hoped that it would be a good one. It wasn't until halfway through the book that the language got bad. It was from 2 minor characters that all the f-words came. I don't know how the other books in the series are, maybe they are clean? There was some other swearing but I really had high hopes for this one because I thought that the writing was very intelligent and the story interesting although it did drag at times with some of the technical discussions. Rated R for language.
