The RiverTrail Museum of Natural History consulting archaeologist, Barnum University Adjunct Professor Dr. Marcella Payden is shaken up when she is attacked. The museum's director and the head of the Rosewood Crime Lab Diane Fallon and her unit work the assault scene along with Detective Hanks and a uniform when bullets are fired at them. When the dust settles, and the perpetrators are gone for the second time with paintings and pottery stolen whatever is gone is not worth the risk of the second assault. Former FBI profiler Ross Kingsley visits Diane to ask a favor. He tells her he no longer believes in profiling after the BTK case and a serial rape case he worked. Instead he works for Florida based Darley, Dunn and Upsahw as a private investigator; currently doing a pro bono action. Nine years ago Ryan Dance was given a life sentence for murdering fifteen year old Ellie Rose Carruthers. His younger sister Stephanie believed he was innocent and tried to prove it. Last week the obstinate twenty-three year old was found dead; the cops claim autoerotic asphyxiation as the case. Her father believes she found the proof and was murdered for it. Ross shows Diane a photo of the death scene and the forensic expert begins to make a case that murder occurred. The latest Diane Fallon investigation (see SCATTERED GRAVES) is a super entry with two strong diverse cases; most fascinating is the refreshing knot forensics spin that shows when readers think they've read or seen everything, something new surfaces. Diane is at her best as she uncovers secrets buried in the dust that those who concealed them thought would be blown away by the wind. This is a great forensics investigative thriller due to a strong cast working complex cases, but especially the super look at criminal science will have the audience profiling Beverly Connor as one of the top mystery writers.

What a surprise that harriet klausner has ruined another book. Do you not understand how to write a review? You DO NOT reveal every detail. Fyi....most ppl can read for themselves and DO NOT need you to tell them everything about the book. Bn, you are losing money thanks to this poster.

I rarely give 5 stars to any book, but this one had such a uniquely interesting plot and was so well-written that I felt a 5 star rating was more than deserved. It is the best mystery I have read in quite a long time and I read a lot of them. I highly recommend this one. Stephanie Clanahan

Outstanding series - can't put them down. I like the cast of characters and the stories told through the different forensic mediums. I've read them all in order and they get better and better. In my opinion this author is much better than Patricia Cornwell.

The plot is interesting, and the author's occasional wry humor is welcome. However, the main character is so self-righteous that it is virtually impossible not to rooi against her. Another peeve of mine (common to all too many ME/forensic anthro books), is that people are always trying to kill them. It gets a little old, frankly - how often does this happen in real life? Pretty much never; it's the ME's office that is important in crime-solving, not the individual. Time to retire this tiresome mystery convention. Also, do a little proof-reading before you have Diane "repel" down into any more vertical cave entrances.
