Descriptions du produit

Temperance Brennan is helping her Guatemalan colleagues identify the remains of villagers who were "disappeared" 20 years ago when she's called in to consult on four more recent disappearances. Is there a serial killer loose in Guatemala City, or is the fate of the young women who've gone missing--including the daughter of the Canadian ambassador--connected to the murder of a human-rights investigator looking into the decades-old massacre? Brennan, the protagonist of Reichs's popular series, is literally hip-deep in intrigue, between the well in Chupan Ya where she unearths the bones of women and children slain in Guatemala's bloody civil war and the septic tank in the capital where the remains of one of the missing girls turn up. 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. --Jane Adams

From Publishers Weekly

Fans of the Temperance Brennan series will be pleased by forensic anthropologist Reichs's latest installment (after Fatal Voyage; Deadly Decisions; etc.). Grave Secrets finds Tempe plying her pathology trade in Guatemala, investigating a massacre site as a favor to a Guatemalan anthropology association. However, when her team is ambushed by gunmen, Tempe finds herself ensnared in a mesh of corruption and murder stretching from Guatemala City to Montreal, involving DAs, military thugs and kinky diplomats. Tempe finds herself drawn and trapped between the two cops investigating: her longtime Canadian suitor, Lt. Andrew Ryan, and her would-be Latin lover, agente Bartolom‚ Galiano. That the two men know each other and are friends doesn't help the situation. When a nosy reporter looking into the massacre is gunned down before Tempe's eyes, she realizes she herself is the next likely target. As has been said before, Reichs has much in common with Patricia Cornwell, though her language is more stripped down and there is less melodrama between autopsies. Devotees of medical procedurals will appreciate the detailed descriptions of bone formation and the mechanics of bodily decomposition within a septic tank; others may not. But 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.

J'adore le professionnalisme de Kathy Reichs, son sens de l'intrigue et son humour. Sa façon de terminer un chapitre en nous tenant en haleine, comment s'arrêter de lire avant la fin ?
La version originale en anglais est toujours à conseiller pour ceux qui peuvent la lire.
Ce commentaire vaut pour tous ses livres, je les ai tous .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A True Thriller 17 avril 2016
Par George Miller - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Unlike other mysteries in this series the primary location this time is Guatemala. Previously, Brennan's work in Central America has been alluded to without giving details. This time, we join Brennan in the excavation of a burial site of murder victims from Guatemala's Civil War.

As usual, complications developed and Brennan is drawn into the investigation of a number of disappearances, possibly the work of a serial killer.

Officials in this corrupt country block her efforts at identifying a body recovered from a dump site. The officials even go so far as to cremate the remains before Brennan is able to complete her work.

You won't be disappointed, there's a Quebec attachment through a pompous ambassador's missing daughter. When Brennan returns to Montreal, Ryan is drawn into this story, too. It seems Ryan's college roommate is the lead investigator Brennan is working with in Guatemala.

Twists and turns abound and you are lead through another compelling mystery. Kathy Reichs has created the only female investigator I'm interested in following. I preorder every one of her books as soon as it's announced. I wasn't disappointed withGrave Secrets.

Good book,thrill seeking with a modest touch of romance, though some of the narrating seem to be public service announcement, all in all thumbs up.

I really enjoy the Temperance Brennan novels for the detail and research that is involved as well as the story lines, I learn something new in each book. Also, I like the fact that the settings are real and I can find the towns, roads, and the general locations that are involved in Dr. Brennan's work and life. The overall content in the books more then makes up for the little annoyances I run across in the stories, though the biggest annoyance comes with the need to put down a Kathy Reichs novel once I have started it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not Reichs' best, but okay 5 octobre 2008
Par Music Lover in Omaha - Publié sur

Okay, like all the Temperance Brennan books by Kathy Reichs that I've read, I enjoyed 'GRAVE SECRETS', but this was not her best effort. The story was pretty good, though for me at least, hard to follow with a large number of characters to keep track of, even though I take notes as I go along. Brennan was in top form getting to the bottom of things (in this one the very bottom) and shaking up the bad guys. The ending was kind of out of no where though. What was Tempe thinking by going out to investigate in the condition she was in? At some point, Brennan has to be smarter than that. Any time that a writer has to take a chapter to explain everything that happened and why, I get the impression that either that author doesn't think the reader is smart enough to follow along or that the writer did not do a good enough job putting the novel together. This one was probably a combination of those. My feeling here is go ahead and read 'GRAVE SECRETS'. It's a good read and will keep your interest. Just don't expect it to live up to other Temperance Brennan novels. Still good, but not great. In my opinion, Kathy Reichs is one of the more dependable authors around.
