Closing the Dead in Dún Laoghaire Crime Writing Festival is world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, the international no. 1 bestselling crime thriller writer and the inspiration behind the hit TV series Bones. Kathy will be introducing her new character, Sunday Night, in her brand new thriller, Two Nights.
A girl has gone missing, lost in the chaos of a bomb explosion, and the family needs Sunday’s help. Is the girl dead? Did someone take her? If she is out there, why doesn't she want to be found?
With Kathy Reichs, the reader knows that they are in the hands of an expert. As a forensic anthropologist, Reichs’s real-life expertise has given her novels an authenticity that most other crime novelists would kill for. From teaching FBI agents how to detect and recover human remains, to separating and identifying commingled body parts in her lab, no one is better qualified to write about what it’s really like to catch the killer and solve the crime.
Kathy Reichs has travelled to Rwanda to testify at the UN Tribunal on Genocide, and helped exhume a mass grave in Guatemala. As part of her work at JPAC she aided in the identification of war dead from World War II, Korea, and Southeast Asia. This is a rare Irish visit and an event not to be missed.
