With this new violence, Tempe is asked by the Guatemalan police for her expertise on another case. Four privileged young women have vanished from Guatemala City in recent months. One is the Canadian ambassador's daughter. Some remains have turned up in a septic tank. Unfortunately, Tempe knows septic tanks.
Teaming with Special Crimes Investigator Bartolomé Galiano, and with Montreal detective Andrew Ryan, Tempe soon finds herself in a dangerous web that stretches far beyond Guatemala's borders. As power, money, greed, and science converge, Tempe must make life-altering choices.
From cutting-edge science in the lab, where Tempe studies fetal bones and cat hair DNA, to a chilling encounter in a lonely morgue, Grave Secrets is powerful entertainment from a crime fiction superstar who combines riveting authenticity with witty, elegant prose.
"One of [crime fiction's] more complex and interesting protagonists." (Amazon.com)

I like K Reichs books and this is my first audio. The story line is interesting and believable, but now that I think about it, I really enjoyed the narrator. She made Tempe Brennan come alive and gave her some personality. In any event, I like Reichs and I enjoyed this audio.

A Little Disappointing
Cathy Reichs is a master of suspense and this book is no exception. For some reason, however, her quippy metaphors become a bit tedious in this book. The narrator's voice is somewhat muffled and while she adopts different "voices" masterfully, her narration has a rather flat affect. While this book is touted as "unabridged" - at the end of the work, the narrator reads that it was abridged for this format. There do seem to be a few details that do not get "tied up" at the end. Overall, it is a good "listen" but a little disappointing if you are accustomed to some of this author's other works.
