Kathy Reichs would appear to be one of the busiest authors out there — she's a forensic anthropologist, a teacher, and she writes books, too! And, Reichs's career mirrors the life of her main character, Dr. Temperance Brennan. In Grave Secrets "Tempe" is in Guatemala on special assignment to investigate a mass burial site. Things get out of hand with the government when she's asked by local police to look into a current case. Though some of Reichs's subject matter is really, well, yucky, she presents things in such a way that I'm intrigued to read more (not grossed out) and left yearning for her next story.

Publisher Comments:

"Fans of TV's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven" (People) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs' electrifyingly authentic bestsellers.

A harrowing excavation unearths a chilling tragedy never laid to rest.

They are "the disappeared," twenty-three massacre victims buried in a well in the Guatemalan village of Chupan Ya two decades ago. Leading a team of experts on a meticulous, heartbreaking dig, Tempe Brennan pieces together the violence of the past. But a fresh wave of terror begins when the horrific sounds of a fatal attack on two colleagues come in on a blood-chilling satellite call. Teaming up with Special Crimes Investigator Bartolomé Galiano and Montreal detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe quickly becomes enmeshed in the cases of four privileged young women who have vanished from Guatemala City — and finds herself caught in deadly territory where power, money, greed, and science converge.

Kathy is one of the best mystery authors I have ever read. She keeps you on your toes and always guessing,I like that. The one thing that slows the story line down for me is the technical language sometimes.I love her!

Ms Reichs' Grave Secrets is a wonderful book about forensic anthropology. The only thing that would make it better is if she would explain some of the terms and methods to those of us who do not have training in that field.
