Publisher's Summary

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...

Good but not gripping

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only to keep in touch with the Temperance Brennan journey


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story line was essentially all there but the story jumped from one crime to another so quickly that it was hard to keep up


Did Katherine Borowitz do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Katherine doesn't present the story with much more than a mild accenting of the different characters, she struggles with the men, but halfway through the book this seemed to improve, perhaps as a result that I began to identify with the characters a bit more


Do you think Grave Secrets needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

There is already a follow up book in this series, which is sadly not available on Audible (so far)

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Love Kathy Reichs but this was to complicated and hard to follow! Not for me!


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Possibly where it was set that is what drew me this book originally


Did Katherine Borowitz do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

No problems with narration


Did Grave Secrets inspire you to do anything?

No! Nearly gave up half way only inspired me to ask for my 'credit' back


Any additional comments?
