Book Description


See all titles by Kathy Reichs

"It was a summer morning in 1982 when soldiers ravaged the village of Chupan Ya, raping and killing women and children. Twenty-three victims are said to lie in the well where, twenty years later, Dr. Temperance Brennan and a team from the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation now dig. No records were kept. To their families, the dead are "the disappeared."" "Forensic anthropologist for the medical examiners in North Carolina and Montreal, Tempe is in Guatemala for a month's service to help some families identify and bury their dead. She digs in a cold, damp pit where she finds a hair clip, a fragment of cloth, a tiny sneaker. Her trowel touches something hard: the hip of a child no more than two years old." "It's heartbreaking work. Something savage happened here twenty years ago. The violence continues today. The team is packing up for the day when an urgent satellite call comes in. Two colleagues are under attack. Shots ring out, and Tempe listens in horror to a woman's screams. Then there is silence. Dead silence." Tempe soon finds herself in a dangerous web that stretches far beyond Guatemala's borders. The stakes are huge. As power, money, greed, and science converge, Tempe must make life-altering choices.

5 of 5 Grave Secrets / Mystery April 25, 2010
Reviewer: M. CLEMENT from COLLEGE STATION, TX United States  
Forensic Anthropologist Dr.Termperance Brennan is invited to Guatemala to help identify the remains left in a well. The village was massacred by the military 20 years ago. On the first full day of digging Tempe gets a phone call from colleagues on the way to the dig. Over the phone Tempe hears screams and gunfire, then silence. Tempe meets local detective Bartolom Galiano aka Bat, who is a long-time buddy of Tempe's occasional love interest Det. Andrew Ryan. Ryan and Bat are close and share secrets. Tempe is attracted to Bat. Will they share secrets about Tempe? Bat enlists Tempe's aid in solving local cases Tempe is asked to identity the human remains found in a septic tank from a number of possibles. There are a number of missing young women of which one is the daughter of the Ambassador.   Corruption, greed, and politics hamper efforts in solving the case. This was a one-day read. Will Tempe choose Ryan or Bat? This is one of my favorites in the Tempe Brennan series.
