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 Bartolome 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.
Investigating a massacre that took place in Guatemala in 1982, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan discovers it is linked to the current disappearance of four girls from Guatemala City, including the daughter of a high-up government official, and the brutal murder of a young archaeologist.
