Bones is about a forensic anthropologist, Dr Temperance Brennan. She works at the Jeffersonian Institution while writing books and she has quite an extraordinary ability for reading clues left on victims’ bones. Because of her impressive ability, law enforcement often calls her for assisting on investigations in which a victim’s remains are badly destroyed, burned, or decomposed so that regular means of identification won’t work. Often teamed with Special Agent Seeley Booth who doesn’t believe in science or scientists, Brennan has brought him around to trusting her when it comes to solving crimes.
