Description
As fresh and shocking as today's headlines, a "chilling" (People) Temperance Brennan novel in which a harrowing excavation unearths a terrible tragedy never laid to rest—from New York Times bestselling author and world-class forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs.
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 Bartolome 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.

      • content: Montreal-based forensic pathologist Temperance Brennan finds herself in Israel, trying to solve the murder of an antiquities dealer that may or may not be all about some two-thousand-year-old bones unearthed at Masada. The archaeology is deeply interesting, the plotting is tight, and Michele Pawk is borderline brilliant at adjusting the pace of her reading to reflect tension, excitement, or fear--you won't soon forget Tempe in a pitch-dark tomb with a panicked hyena. One quibble: Someone should have paid heed to French pronunciation, given that half the story takes place in French-speaking Canada. This publisher wouldn't print a book in which the word "mus��e" appears scores of times without its accent. Why does the audio merit less care? B.G. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine

        May 9, 2005
        Forensic anthropologist Dr. Temperance "Tempe" Brennan gets caught in mysteries past and present when she's called in to determine if illegal antiquities dealer Avram Ferris's gunshot death is murder or suicide. An acquaintance of Avram suggests the former: he hands Tempe a photograph of a skeleton, taken in Israel in 1963, and insists it's the reason Avram is dead. Tempe's longtime boyfriend, Quebecois detective Andrew Ryan, is also involved with the case, so the duo head to Israel where they attempt to solve the murder and a mystery revolving around a first-century tomb that may contain the remains of the family of Jesus Christ. This find threatens the worldwide Christian community, the Israeli and Jewish hierarchy and numerous illegal antiquity dealers, any of whom might be out to kill Tempe and Ryan. Not that Tempe notices. She has the habit of being oblivious to danger, which quickly becomes annoying, as does Reichs's tendency to end chapters with a heavy-handed cliffhanger ("His next words sent ice up my spine"). The plot is based on a number of real-life anthropological mysteries, and fans of such will have a good time, though thriller readers looking for chills and kills may not find the novel quite as satisfying. Agent, Jennifer Rudolph Walsh.

      • content: There's good news and more good news about this audiobook, another in the series featuring Medical Examiner Temperence Brennan. Those with analytical minds and an interest in forensic anthropology will appreciate Reichs's tight plot, faithfulness to the anthropological process, and sound scientific conclusions. Further, Barbara Rosenblat correctly pronounces the French words and names, as well as the myriad medical terms. She even manages to make understandable complex forensics, such as the difference between nuclear and mitochondrial DNA. Rosenblat's voice for Charlie, a cockatoo who yodels after drinking beer, is terrific comic relief. Dialogue between Tempe and male lead Andrew Ryan is clever and timed as the repartee of agile minds. K.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine
