    Scatter Graves twists and turns

    I've read several in this series and love the main character, Diane Fallon. This book was enjoyable, but not anything too exciting. There were a few twists and turns in the plot with the main character going through a lot of heroing events. And she always seems to come out with her feet on the ground, literally. I like mysteries and I actually figured out who the perp was in this adventure before the end. I enjoy mysteries, especially with forensic science and a lady heroine. Sometimes it's almost too pat, the wholesome and goodness, I think she (author) needs to kick it up a notch so you feel that she's really in danger, or really has to struggle, use, find other sources to get answers, etc.

    Not Impressed...

    Maybe it's because book #6 is the first book I'm reading of the Diane Fallon series, but I was just not impressed at all with this story. To be honest, I couldn't even finish it. I felt there was waaaay too much emphasis and detail about the local politics and not enough of the forensic science aspect of the characters' jobs. I was really hoping for a new forensic author to latch onto (currently a fan of Kathy Reichs, Jeffery Deaver, and classic Patricia Cornwell). Sad to say that this book did not meet what I was looking for. Furthermore, as a forensic scientist myself, I found the plot that circulated around Connor's crime laboratory within a museum completely unrealistic. There were entirely too many scenes that took place inside this "lab" that would never happen (or be allowed to happen, for that matter) in a real laboratory setting. Overall, this was a big disappointment. :(

    Very good read!

    I am enjoying this series. The characters are interesting. The story line is very different. I like the way the characters realte to each other and respond to the situations. Diane Fallon in an interesting woman. I am looking forward to more books.

    I have enjoyed all of her Diane Fallon books. The characters are well written and very likeable. She keeps the characters true to their original descriptions. The setting is also unique!

    engaging crime caper

    In Rosewood, Georgia, newly elected Mayor Spence Jefferies has fired experienced supervisors like the chief of police and the chief of the crime lab replacing them with political hacks. No longer working for the town as its crime lab chief, RiverTrail Museum of Natural History curator Diane Fallon has run-ins with her replacement Lloyd Bryce and his thugs. However, legally she is in the right as the crime lab is owned by the museum not the town.<BR/><BR/>As Bryce and the new police of chief Peeks lead the harassment of her, one of the cops Harve Delamore tries to kill her, but instead he dies falling from a cliff ledge. When someone kills Jefferies and Peeks apparently in retaliation by ¿biting¿ back for their nefarious activities, the townsfolk want Fallon and her former team of crime scene experts to investigate. Although she has doubts about getting involved, Diane begins to look into the homicides because the prime suspect worked for her recently at the lab and in a nasty lethal overseas incident that has left both with emotional scars.<BR/>---<BR/>Although why the harassment, which comes across for much of the book as childishly inane especially without legal counsel, is not explained until very late to the reader (early would have been better even if the heroine is left in the dark), this is an engaging crime caper. Someone finally had enough of the bullying tactics of the mayor, the police chief, and their hooligans; Diane worries her friend and former employee David is that someone as she fears he went over the edge with frustration. Fans will enjoy this small town Georgia thriller as Rose County becomes a killing field.<BR/>---<BR/>Harriet Klausner
