Guatemala, in the searing heat. The bones of a child no more than two years old are uncovered when mass graves are excavated.
Twenty-three women and children are said to lie where forensic anthropologist Dr Temperance Brennan is searching for remains, in what is one of the most heartbreaking cases of her career.
Then four young girls go missing from Guatemala City...And when a skeleton is found in a septic tank at the back of a run down hotel, only someone with Tempe's expertise can deduce who the victim was and how they died. But her path is blocked: it appears that some people would prefer that Guatemala's 'disappeared' stayed buried. And others seem to want the missing girls kept the same way...

I enjoy reading fantasy, crime and mystery thrillers, as well as historical novels.
Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs is tragic and gruesome, but absolutely brilliant. Tempe travels to Guatemala to help sort through bones at a mass grave site. When a local detective takes her to a motel, where they discover the bones of a young woman in the septic tank. Together they investigate with Andrew Ryan, and uncover a larger plot, but someone in the Guatemalan government does not want them to uncover the truth. Katherine Borowitz delivers a great performance of the audiobook bringing the tragedy and horror of the situation to life.
"Hard to stick with almost boring!"
Love Kathy Reichs but this was to complicated and hard to follow! Not for me!
Possibly where it was set that is what drew me this book originally
No problems with narration
No! Nearly gave up half way only inspired me to ask for my 'credit' back
Have loved all her previous books this was not for me
"Another good outing by the author."
This story is another good outing by the author, can't really go wrong with these books.
