Grave Secrets by Kathy Reichs

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.

Another amazing installment in what is now one of my favourite series! Kathy Reichs knows exactly what I want in a novel: some suspense, riveting romance, fascinating facts, and of course, murder!

Grave Secrets was no different from the rest of the novels in the series (you can read all the reviews here!) so it totally delivered. Giving it a teensy bit of an edge though, over all the others so far, was the change of scenery, and way more romantic development, which has been way over do and much needed to sate me!

This time we see the globe-trotting forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan in Guatemala, where she is once again engaging in the ever interesting activity of digging up bones. This time there are some unique circumstances, but before long, we see the plot take a familiar turn for the mysterious and tantalizingly interesting.

Of course, there is always danger lurking for Tempe, and this time she has two nights in shining armour to offer her protection (which was uber-lovely!) and provided just the jump-start Tempe needed to take things to the next level. I won't give it away, but it isn't terribly predictable, which is great, and the book ends with a whopper of a cliffhanger!

So it goes without saying that I think this is a great series for anyone to pick up, especially if you are fans of the also fantastic hit TV show Bones. Also if you like murder mysteries of any kind. The Temperance Brennan chronicles stand in a league of their own and bring so many great themes into a unique subject.

I just love 'em!--Cheers & Enjoy♥
