Kathy Reichs has created the only female investigator I'm interested in following. I wasn't disappointed withGrave Secrets. 2 people found this helpful. Okay, like all the Temperance Brennan books by Kathy Reichs that I've read, I enjoyed 'GRAVE SECRETS', but this was not her best effort. The story was pretty good, though for me at least, hard to follow with a large number of characters to keep track of, even though I take notes as I go along. Brennan was in top form getting to the bottom of things (in this one the very bottom) and shaking up the bad guys.

In the searing heat of Guatemala, Dr Temperance Brennan must harden.

Grave Secrets is a book that is well worth reading. Did we really have to read time after time that heroine had a shower and was to tired to eat.

Grave Secrets is the fifth novel by Kathy Reichs starring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan.

"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.

Unlike other mysteries in this series the primary location this time is Guatemala. Previously, Brennan's work in Central America has been alluded to without giving details. This time, we join Brennan in the excavation of a burial site of murder victims from Guatemala's Civil War.

As usual, complications developed and Brennan is drawn into the investigation of a number of disappearances, possibly the work of a serial killer.

Officials in this corrupt country block her efforts at identifying a body recovered from a dump site. The officials even go so far as to cremate the remains before Brennan is able to complete her work.

You won't be disappointed, there's a Quebec attachment through a pompous ambassador's missing daughter. When Brennan returns to Montreal, Ryan is drawn into this story, too. It seems Ryan's college roommate is the lead investigator Brennan is working with in Guatemala.

Twists and turns abound and you are lead through another compelling mystery. Kathy Reichs has created the only female investigator I'm interested in following. I preorder every one of her books as soon as it's announced. I wasn't disappointed withGrave Secrets.

bought a used book, and came in great condition, though not the same cover as pictured. not too bad on shipping speed. as far as the reading, it was a good book, not her best work, but good read in the series. looking forward to the next.

Okay, like all the Temperance Brennan books by Kathy Reichs that I've read, I enjoyed 'GRAVE SECRETS', but this was not her best effort. The story was pretty good, though for me at least, hard to follow with a large number of characters to keep track of, even though I take notes as I go along. Brennan was in top form getting to the bottom of things (in this one the very bottom) and shaking up the bad guys. The ending was kind of out of no where though. What was Tempe thinking by going out to investigate in the condition she was in? At some point, Brennan has to be smarter than that. Any time that a writer has to take a chapter to explain everything that happened and why, I get the impression that either that author doesn't think the reader is smart enough to follow along or that the writer did not do a good enough job putting the novel together. This one was probably a combination of those. My feeling here is go ahead and read 'GRAVE SECRETS'. It's a good read and will keep your interest. Just don't expect it to live up to other Temperance Brennan novels. Still good, but not great. In my opinion, Kathy Reichs is one of the more dependable authors around.

I really enjoy the Temperance Brennan novels for the detail and research that is involved as well as the story lines, I learn something new in each book. Also, I like the fact that the settings are real and I can find the towns, roads, and the general locations that are involved in Dr. Brennan's work and life. The overall content in the books more then makes up for the little annoyances I run across in the stories, though the biggest annoyance comes with the need to put down a Kathy Reichs novel once I have started it.

I have to admit that I found this to be one of the weakest in the five novel series, but even in that, it's worth reading if you've become a fan of Ms. Reichs. Perhaps when one stumbles upon a good author and a great series such as Temperance Brennan, we get our expectations set very high and it's disappointing when we're let down.
Perhaps the problem with this book is its preachiness. While I can certainly understand Ms. Reichs' horror at what happened in Guatemala, it tends to bog down the other mystery in the book, concerning the disappearance of four young girls and the discovery of a body in a septic tank. Now, that's ONE unnerving scene, in which Tempe goes into the septic bank to remove the body. It makes me think about what goes on in our septic systems. The addition of Bat Galiano as a possible love interest also seems unnecessary; I think Reichs has prolonged long enough the romance between Tempe and Ryan. They're obviously meant for each other, and her cute little ending about which one of the cops is Tempe running off with is really a cheap slam to her fans.
This book moves a little slower, and additonal preachiness comes in regard to stem cell research.
Write good mysteries, Kathy, as you have in the past and don't expose us to your views on world issues. Including them in the plot is one thing, but jamming them down our throats is another.
But, hey, I'll be there for #6.
RECOMMENDED.

I'm enjoying reading these books in order. They do follow an order in a way. Very well written and a lot of factual information about her profession.

Good read. Not as good as the others I have read in the sequence. I believe that is primarily because this was set in South America with Spanish in the wording that I was unable to figure out what was being stated.
I otherwise really enjoyed this book and I am onto her next one already. I would definately say read this book. Keep her boosk in sequence for Optimium reading pleasure.
The suspects are not who you think they should be. The pace quicken across three continents. The subject matter is timely and comes together at the end. You start with one topic and tie it all together at the end.
Fast paced and informative on so many levels. Highly recommend this book. One of the author's best!
