Reprint.Investigating a massacre that took place in Guatemala in 1982, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan discovers that those events are linked to the disappearance of four girls from Guatemala City, as well as the murder of a human rights investigator.

"Fans of TV's CSI: Crime Scene Investigation should be in heaven" (People) stepping into the world of forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance Brennan, star of Kathy Reichs' electrifyingly authentic bestsellers.

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.

Annotation:
Forensics expert Temperance Brennan travels to Guatemala City to help investigators solve decades-old political murders, but when four new murders occur, Temperance realizes that someone in the Guatemalan political community might not want the mystery solved.
Author Bio
Kathy Reichs
Crime novelist Kathy Reichs is proof that real life can be just as compelling as fiction. When not writing, Reichs works as a forensic anthropologist--a profession she shares with her series protagonist, Temperance Brennan--and she has been called upon to exhume a mass grave in Guatemala, testify at the U.N. Tribunal on Genocide in Rwanda, and identify remains found at the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, among other assignments. A native of Chicago, Reichs (pronounced RAKES) earned a doctoral degree in physical anthropology from Northwestern University in 1975 and subsequently embarked on a teaching career. On occasion, police detectives would bring skeletal remains to her university office to get her advice. "I found that very compelling," she told one interviewer. "I liked the idea of the relevance of it--that you could actually impact someone's life. . . . [In academia] if you're wrong, you're not going to send anybody to jail or you're not going to misidentify a missing person." Deciding to change her career focus, she was certified by the American Board of Forensic Anthropology in 1986 and began consulting in the office of North Carolina's chief medical examiner. Later that decade she took on a similar role at the Laboratoire de Sciences Judiciaires et de Médecine in Quebec. Her first Temperance Brennan novel, DEJA DEAD, was published in 1997 and won an Arthur Ellis Award from the Crime Writers of Canada. Reichs has since published several more novels featuring the coolly competent Brennan, each of which has appeared on the major bestseller lists. In 2005 a television series, BONES, based on the books and produced by Reichs, premiered on the Fox network. Reichs, who has also written for young adults, acknowledges that her books and TV show provide escapist entertainment. She believes, however, that they serve a greater purpose as well. "Hopefully, [they] make the public aware of how powerful a tool science can be," she has said. "[Perhaps I] will inspire young people, especially young women, to go into science, or to become homicide detectives."
