Rumor Of Bones (Lindsay Chamberlain Mystery #1) by Beverly Connor

Lindsay Chamberlain, archaeologist and forensic anthropologist, is working on an archaeological dig in Georgia. The local county sheriff asks her to identify human remains found recently in shallow graves in nearby woods.

As the archaeology crew excavates, strange things begin to happen. First come the grave robbers and pot hunters. Then mysterious opposition to the dig from a shady lawyer who has been orchestrating attacks against the crew. When the lawyer is murdered and someone attempts to abduct a nine-year-old girl, Lindsay finds herself in the middle of a chain of crimes that began with a homicide sixty years ago. After the passage of so much time, it looks as if the guilty party may get away with murder - unless Lindsay can uncover the solution.

As a series starter, Rumor of Bones was pretty good. Interesting plotlines and character development combined with Conner's masterful storytelling style to keep the reader engaged throughout. While the story wasn't quite as long as most other novels of this type, I appreciate that Conner didn't try to drag out the story just to fill up a quota of pages. That would have detracted from reader enjoyment and created frustration. I look forward to reading more in this series. Stephanie Clanahan

This is a great first book of the series. I read the first page and hated getting interrupted from then on. Anyone who likes archeology, forensics, and a good story, should read this. I loved the main characters, jumped from one suspect to another,and purchased the rest of the series. I hate books with foul language and this one only had a couple of words. I hope the rest of the series is as good. There is sexual tension but no sex scenes, which was refreshing. Get this book and dig in!

This book is amazing! It keeps you in your seat until the very end. From page one you guess where she is going and who did it. Through out the book you can picture the sites, the people, and what Lindsey Chamberlin is thinking. I recommend this book and the following books in the series. If you like Patrica Cornwell, you will diffently like Beverly Conner.
