It was a summer morning in 1982 when soldiers ravaged the village of Chupan Ya, raping and killing women and children. Twenty-three victims are said to lie in the well when Dr. Temperance Brennan and the team from the Guatemalan Forensic Anthropology Foundation now dig. No records were kept. To their families, the dead are "the disappeared."
The team is packing up for the day when an urgent satellite call comes in. Two colleagues are under attack. Shots ring out, and Tempe listens in horror to a woman's sreams. Then there is silence. Dead silence.
With this new violence, Tempe is asked by the Guatemalan police for her expertise on another case. Four privlidged young women have vanished from Guatemala City in recent months. One is the Canadian's ambassador's daughter. Some remains have turned up in the 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 streches far beyond Guatemala's borders. As power, money, greed, and science converge, Tempe must make life-altering choices.
Grave Secrets is powerful entertainment from a crime fiction superstar who combines riveting authenticity with witty, elegant prose. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Chilling.” 

    People

  • “Tempe is a standout in crime fiction’s crowded field of forensics experts—she’s one of its more complex and interesting protagonists, dealing with intriguing cases that often cross national borders and a personal life that’s rich in possibilities the author skillfully exploits. Tempe—and Reichs—just keep getting better.”  

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “Fans of the Temperance Brennan series will be pleased by forensic anthropologist Reichs’s latest installment…The author keeps the twists coming, and by the novel’s climax, she has skillfully interwoven her many subplots and red herrings into a satisfying puddle of sex, sleaze, greed and gore.”

Author Kathy ReichsKathy Reichs is the author of more than twenty New York Times bestselling novels featuring forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, including her most recent The Bone Collection.

A professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, she is a former vice president of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and serves on the National Police Services Advisory Council in Canada. Reichs’s own life, as much as her novels, is the basis for the TV show Bones, one of the longest-running series in the history of the FOX network.
