Brilliant, but socially inept, forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperence Brennan works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington DC. After consulting for him on a FBI case, she is approached by cocky yet charming Former Army Ranger turned Special Agent, Seeley Booth to help the Bureau solve crimes by identifying human remains that are too far gone for standard FBI forensic investigations. Brennan's empirical, literal view of the world causes friction with Booths emotive, instinctive attitude creating a volatile relationship. However as their case load increases the symbiotic partnership produces results and with the support of Brennan's Squint Squad, murderers, past and present should be on the look out. Written by

Several times throughout the series, Brennan mentions Booth's claim that he is a direct descendant of John Wilkes Booth. That would be impossible, according to ancestry sites John Wilkes Booth had no children of record, and only one of his brothers had a son who survived to adulthood, and the direct male Booth line died off after that generation. Only a few Booth sisters had sons with other surnames. See more
