Overview

Beverly Connor’s “fabulous forensic investigation series” (Mystery Books) featuring forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon proves that the past is never really forgotten—and that some memories can kill…
 
As a young girl, Juliet Price witnessed a brutal act of violence—and then became the victim of one herself. For years, Juliet’s traumatized mind hid the events from her. Then she saw a television show featuring an unsolved cold case, and the horrors come back to her in her nightmares.
 
Diane Fallon realizes that Juliet’s shattered visions recall not one, but two intertwined crimes—crimes that Diane intends to uncover. But someone else also saw the TV program. Someone who has emerged from the shadows to continue the killing they began eighteen years ago…

Well harriet klausner strikes again, ruining another book by revealing everything. I sincerely hope bn gets a clue as to how much money you are costing them by your plot reveals. Noone wants to read a book after you tell them everything that happens.

The explosion shook the neighborhood waking up forensic anthologist Diane Fallon. The chemicals spewed into the air leads to a full evacuation. At the same time as people leave, an apparent stoned college student tries to hijack Diane¿s car thank goodness for child proof locks. However not long afterward she learns her car-jacking culprit is dead and that the explosion was a meth lab, which Police Chief Garnett directs she and her Rosewood Crime Lab investigators to filter through in order to identify the thirty plus dead students.------------------ At the same time she digs through the ruins, a new employee Juliet Price is shook by a real crime cold case TV show that awakens a buried trauma. Eighteen years ago as a little girl she watched a killer murder her family including her. However, the culprit made one mistake, Juliet survived the assault, but her mind shut down what she saw so that she could cope that is until now. The only problem is the killer saw the show and plans to rectify the error. Soon the case of eighteen years ago and the meth mess will converge with Diane at the vortex.-------------- The latest Fallon investigative tale (see DEAD SECRET) is a fantastic investigative mystery that grips the audience from the opening heated explosion until the final frozen climax. Diane is terrific as she juggles several cases including that of her new employee Juliet. Few writers match the intense suspense of Beverly Connors especially when it comes to her ¿Dead¿ thrillers.------------ Harriet Klausner

I think I enjoyed Dead Past more than all of Conner's previous Diana Fallon books. The fast pace and interesting storyline kept me guessing the entire time I was reading. I can't wait for the next installment in this series. Stephanie Clanahan

I've read the whole series now. I enjoyed them as much as reading Cornwall and other forensic novels. I like the way Connor brings the many twists and turns together in the end. It's just crazy that #5 isn't available for the nook. I'm looking forward to reading the next in her line.

Diane Fallon is awakened in the wee hours of the morning by an explosion in the neighborhood. Soon there is an evacuation. As she¿s trying to leave, an injured and half-crazed youth tries to carjack her. Due to her quick thinking, she gets him immobilized in her car and escapes. Turns out the explosion was a meth lab in the basement of an apartment building where many of the University students lived. Plus there was a party going on in one of the apartments during the blast. Dr. Fallon and her crime scene investigators begin trying to identify the victims and determine who was responsible. Other murders begin happening that appear to be connected in some way. Her people are stretched thin trying to keep up with the various cases. Plus the fire investigator gets in their way many times and compromises some of the evidence. In the meantime, one of Dr. Fallon¿s museum employees, Juliet, is having anxiety attacks related to an event in her past. Diane is asked to look into it, and soon finds herself in the middle of danger. I love how this author intertwines multiple cases and storylines. You know they¿ll all come together in the end. It made it really hard for me to put down this book wanting to see how everything related. I love Diane and both her museum staff and her crime scene staff. The author has created a great cast of characters for this series. I like the fact that she manages both as I get a glimpse into both areas. It gives the series a lot of diversity and keeps it fresh. I look forward to reading the next in the series. Hope it isn¿t too long before it is published! I highly recommend this book.

I have only gotten half way thourgh this book. But i'm already on the edge of my seat. I got started reading the books thourgh my mom. It was 'A rumor of bones' the first of the Linsey Chamberlin books. A friend of mine had read it first. she told me all about. At first i didn't think anything about it. But i was looking at books i had by my bed it was about 1 o'clock in the morning. I couldn't put it down. I read it in a week. I'm a slow reader. So that's fast for me. If your a younger reader you HAVE to start with the Linsey Chamberlin books. If your a little older and like a little more serous books read the Diane Fallon. But Linsey Chamberlin books are the best i've ever read in my life. Probably better then any movie i've seen to. -A Reader
