Overview

“Call[ing] to mind the forensic mysteries of Aaron Elkins and Patricia Cornwell” (Chicago Sun-Times), Beverly Connor’s spellbinding series proves that the dead do tell tales—and reveal secrets that can threaten the living in the most chilling of ways…



In the depths of an unmapped cave, forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon makes an astonishing discovery: the decades-old skeleton of a caving victim. Soon, the remains of two more bodies are found—one in an old car submerged in the waters of an abandoned quarry, another buried in the Georgia woods. At first, with nothing to link the dissimilar victims except desiccated bones, Diane can’t fathom the connection. But someone in her shadow does. It’s the key to a mystery that reaches back seventy years in a heritage of love, greed, and murder—and an unearthed family secret that still holds the power to kill.

    While mapping out a cave, Diane has an accident and discovers a skeleton which had been there for quite some time. She and her team set out to discover the identity of Caver Doe and how he died. Soon the remains of two more people are found. One is found in a car submerged in the water at an abandoned quarry. The other is buried in the woods. Plus Diane is asked to analyze the bones of a witch, legend has it, that died in an English cave years ago. She is visited by people who want the bones and soon finds herself in a battle over them. Diane uses both her crime scene investigators and her museum staff to uncover clues as to the identity of the bones. Many things begin to happen and soon Diane believes Caver Doe and the other two people may be connected. She just isn¿t sure how. Can they discover the truth before anyone is injured or killed to keep the seventy-year-old secret hidden? I love this series. It is forensic, but the author doesn¿t get really technical. Nor is it gory. I also like the caving. While it¿s not something I would do, I enjoy the adventure and reading about it. Diane and her various staff people, both in the crime lab and the museum, are such great characters. They really add so much to each book. The author does such a great job of intertwining stories through each book. I always know they¿re going to connect, but I cannot figure out how or why. I end up reading the books in this series in about two days as I have so much trouble putting them down. I highly recommend this book.

    Good read!

    I really like the Diane Fallon mysteries that I've read so far, and I'm looking forward to reading more. Diane is a great protaganist, intelligent and feisty. This installment has lots of mysteries and plenty of badguys. Diane leads a very exciting life for a museum director.

    A fantastic author!

    Beverly writes mysteries like no one I have read in a long time. Very knowledgeable; very interesting and a wonderful gift of intrigue. I place her right up there with Clive Cussler, Preston & Child, and all my favorites.
