Down in the Everglades Tempe investigates Swamp Bones­ – a grisly discovery in the stomach of an eighteen-foot Burmese python.

And First Bones gets under Tempe’s skin with the untold story of her first case and her decision to become a forensic anthropologist.

But as the words of a terrified young woman echo round her office from an audio recorder found near where the bones were discovered, something about the story won’t let Tempe go.

As Tempe investigates further she finds herself involved in a case more complicated and horrifying than she could ever have imagined.
