Kathy Reichs touring New Zealand next month!

New Zealander readers have the chance to "Get under the skin of forensics with this inspirational and internationally bestselling US crime writer, professor, leading forensic anthropologist & creator of the smash-hit TV series, BONES" when acclaimed author Kathy Reichs visits our shores later this month.

Reichs is touring to promote her latest Tempe Brennan thriller, BONES OF THE LOST, and will be doing several public events across the country. Reichs, who I met when she briefly passed through New Zealand in early 2011 on a cruise ship (see picture, right), will be appearing in Dunedin, Christchurch, and Auckland - in each case with someone who has been involved with the Ngaio Marsh Award: finalist Vanda Symon, Great Crime Fiction Debate participant Chris McVeigh, and judge Graham Beattie respectively.
