In addition to technical books, Reichs has written thirteen novels to date, which have been translated into 30 languages.[7] Her first novel, Déjà Dead, won the 1997 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel.[8] The fictional heroine in her novels, Temperance "Tempe" Brennan, is also a forensic anthropologist.
