A Good Read! The story takes you from Guatemala to Montreal and back. Temperance Brennan is working with an agency to find and identify the bodies of the people murdered by corrupt and depraved security forces during Guatemala's recent violent history. When the mass grave is found, it triggers a frightening chain of events. Two members of their group are attacked and left for dead on the road. Were they mistaken for someone else? In the midst of it all, Tempe is asked to come to Guatemala City to help the police identify a body they found. Several young girls have gone missing and they believe the body may be one of them. Is a serial killer responsible? One girl is the daughter of the Canadian ambassador. All of a sudden, the DA and his friends swoop in and take all the evidence. It's clear they don't want Tempe's help. Assassins even follow her back home to Montreal. Clearly, there is a secret to be unearthed. Can she do it in time? Very good book.
