Good, not the best

I read Brennan books 1-3, accidentally skipped 4 and went straight to this one. Not the best of the books I've read so far from Kathy Reichs, this one seemed overly and necessarily convoluted. I expected since this book was set in Guatemala, that would be the complete setting of the story. Not entirely sure why this ended up back in Canada save for the very shaky (and cliched) ambassador connection.

One particular thing that has bugged me about the 4 books that I've read, is that in every single one, Dr. Brennan ends up finding herself in some sort of danger. Is Kathy Reichs drawing on personal experience here, and the world of forensic anthropology really is that dangerous, or is she trying to raise the characters status to make it seem as though these murders really couldn't be solved without Dr. Brennan, or is the character really that reckless to always put herself in that danger?
