Published in 2002

Recommended Age Group: Adult

Summary: Temperance Brennan goes to Guatemala to uncover and identify some massacre victims and ends up investigating the murder and disappearance of four teenage girls. The investigation gets hampered by some uncooperative parents, diplomatic immunity, and the locals thinking they can do it all themselves. Not all the locals are this close minded. Galiano, a local cop, is a more than enthusiastic participant in all things Tempe. Galiano is also an old friend of Andrew Ryan. Ryan comes to Guatemala to help with the case and to reconnect with his old friend and Tempe. In spite of numerous obstacles including shootings, poisoning, and bad fish, Tempe, Ryan, and, Galiano manage to catch the bad guys and save the day.

Personal Notes: A slow start but a really interesting story. The use of Spanish got to me a little bit. She always translated more or less but it was still there. I suppose it’s like the use of French in her other books but since I speak French I don’t think I noticed it as much. The setting change was interesting and there was an interesting romantic angle as well. Full of surprises and engaging to the end.
