Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Near the outset of Connor's exciting ninth thriller featuring forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon (after The Night Killer), Diane discovers Simone Brooks, a colleague from her days investigating human rights abuses in South America, lying injured on the floor of the crime lab at Georgia's River Trail Museum of Natural History. Simone mutters something suggesting that a person they trusted in South America is up to no good before losing consciousness. Soon, Diane finds herself framed for drug smuggling and the murders of four men in Brazil. Meanwhile, Diane's eight-year-old adopted daughter, Ariel, and a kidnapped anthropologist mistaken for Diane, Lindsay Chamberlain, battle thugs and conspiracies in the Amazon rainforest. Crisp, intelligent prose helps propel the many hairpin plot twists. The three smart, likable female leads--Diane, Ariel, and Lindsay, making a guest appearance from another Connor series--don't wait around for men to save them. (Dec.)

    This is a brilliant mystery

    At the River Trail Museum of Natural History, curator Diane Fallon is working late when she finds two wounded individuals in separate rooms. She recognizes one of them Simone Brooks as a World Accord International human rights activist who she worked with in South America. The woman holding a child's femur in a death grip mumbles "It was one of us" before collapsing into a coma. Security calls for an ambulance for the first victim, but when Diane calls for a second ambulance, she learns no previous call was made and soon smells smoke in the room with the victim she does not know.

    Not long after the nocturnal incident, Diane becomes the focus of a diabolical assault. Her identity is stolen and soon after she is accused by law enforcement of committing a murder when she worked in Brazil. Diane, her museum team and her fiancé Frank begin the counter attack trying to uncover who is behind the assault and why.

    This is a brilliant mystery as not only does Beverly Connor tie Diane's work in South America to the present case, the author also links back to her Lindsay Chamberlain series without missing a beat. The story line action-packed from the first moan and never slows down until the final confrontation as the past and present subplots excitingly mingle. However, adding to the fun is an overarching theme twist that is unexpected yet seems plausible. Fans of Ms. Connor will relish One Grave Less.

    Love these books- but LOST!

    I thought I was reading these books in order; however, I seemed to miss the book where Diann & Star went to Paris.
    I cannot figure out what book I missed.
    HELP please.

    The best Diane Fallon book yet!

    Ive now read all of the Diane Fallon series and so hope Beverly Connor continues the series. I will now read the Lindsay Chaimberland books. Very clever to link them like that.

    Great Book!

    This book brought in characters from the Lindsay Chamberlain novels. Now I'm reading those.

    Welcome back Lindsay

    I've enjoyed the Diane Fallon series, but I've missed Lindsay Chamberlain. This book has both. While the story revolves around Diane and her past...and her supposedly murdered daughter, Lindsay is running for her life with the help of an intrepid and courageous young girl named Ariel.
    Ms. Connor jumps between the jungles of South America and the Rosewood museum and each story grabs the reader until they merge in a satisfactory ending.

    Connor's Best Ever

    This book is the best book that Beverly Connor has written. She finally brings Lindsey Chamberlain back after too long a time. What a heart stopper. Ms. Connor is an excellent author. Hopefully, she will put out another Lindsey Chamberlain Mystery. Excellent read!

    Her best yet

    Warning, if you have read her other Diane Fallon books, you won't be able to put the book down. She grabs you in the first few pages. The story keeps moving and the shocks keep coming. I've read all her other books and I hope she continues, every time I pick up one of the books I feel like I'm visiting old friends.
    The other books in this series can be read out of order, but you should read the others before reading this one. I probably wouldn't be as engrossed if I wasn't already familiar with the characters.
