Reichs, Kathy

Tagged: Author

(1948-    ) US forensic anthropologist and author, whose work includes academic papers and books, and crime novels in the Temperance Brennan sequence featuring a forensic anthropologist. A spin-off from that sequence for the Young Adult market – the Tory Brennan series starting with Virals (2010) – was co-written with her son, at first uncredited, and features Temperance's grand-niece who, with her young companions on an Island off the coast of South Carolina, are infected with a canine virus that bestows Superpowers on them. This origin story is followed, in Seizure, by a tale in which the incipient Superheroes search for buried treasure in order to supply funding for the research institute where they had their original experience. Though originally described as a trilogy, the sequence now seems open-ended. [JC]
