Dr Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC, and writes novels as a sideline. If the standard methods of identifying a body are useless - when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up - law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones.
Most law enforcement can't handle Brennan's intelligence, her drive for the truth, or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation. Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz) of the FBI's Homicide Investigations Unit is the exception. A former Army sniper, Booth mistrusts science and scientists - the "squints," as he calls them, who pore over the physical evidence of a crime. But even he cannot deny that the combination of his intuition and Brennan's scientific acumen makes them a formidable team.
Apart from Booth, Brennan is most comfortable with her equally brilliant colleagues at the Jeffersonian's Medico-Legal Lab. Angela Montenegro (Michaela Conlin), an artist who specializes in reconstructing facial features and crime scenes, is Brennan's earthy and bawdy best friend; "the bug guy," conspiracy theorist Dr Jack Hodgins (TJ Thyne), is an expert on insects, spores and minerals; and Dr Camille "CAM" Saroyan (Tamara Taylor), the streetwise and centred coroner, must wrangle all the geniuses under her purview. Lending his professional expertise to Brennan and Booth is Dr Lance Sweets (John Francis Daley), a brilliant young psychologist who is equally adept at profiling murderers and providing "couples therapy" to Booth and Brennan.
As Season Five of Bones begins, Booth and Brennan contend with the emotional fallout resulting from the sea-change in their relationship brought about by events at the end of the last series: Brennan's request to have Booth father her child, as well as the strange, profound - almost psychic - link they shared during Booth's coma, which left both of them wondering what thoughts and emotions the other is experiencing. While Booth endeavors to get to grips with these unleashed emotions, Brennan insists that the two of them focus their attention and energy on their main job: catching the murderers that no one else can catch.
