Dead Hunt (Diane Fallon Series #5) by Beverly Connor

Sentenced to prison for the rest of her natural life, Clymene O'Riley is a beautiful, clever, coldblooded killer whom forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon knows cannot be trusted. Diane supplied the forensic evidence that put Clymene in prison for one murder, with implications that she may have left a veritable graveyard of dead men in her wake. So what is Diane to do when Clymene reaches out from prison to her with a plea for help, and FBI profiler Ross Kingsley urges Diane on?

The answer leaves Diane the prime suspect in a bloody murder and puts her in the path of an angry killer who wants her dead. Not even her haven at the RiverTrail Museum of Natural History is safe, as a scandal over possession of stolen Egyptian artifacts threatens to turn Diane out in the street.

This Special Gold Edition has been edited and revised by the author from the original edition. Materials have been added, including a bibliography and links to web resources recommended by the author that are related to the subject matter and research behind Dead Hunt.

Clymene O'Riley is in prison for murdering her husband. The authorities think she is a black widow and has killed others, but they haven't been able to prove it.

Diane Fallon is in charge of the Rosewood, GA, crime lab as a forensic anthropologist as well as director of the River Trail Museum of Natural History. Actually the two jobs work well together.

Clymene is a manipulator and very smart. She asks to speak to Diane. FBI Profiler Ross Kingsley talks Diane into seeing her.

In the meantime museum assistant director Kendal Williams is under scrutiny, along with the museum, due to a report in a local newspaper that she knowingly purchased stolen artifacts. The rumors could destroy her career.

Clymene escapes from prison and is believed to have been murdered. Diane becomes the prime suspect.

Can she and her crime lab staff discover the identity of the real killer? Can Diane also help clear up the reputation of the museum and Kendal?

I absolutely love this series. Diane is such a great character. No matter whether she's caving or investigating, or working in the museum. I devour these books and can't wait for the next one.

The author does such a fabulous job plotting them out. I always have a terrible time trying to put the book down. I just have to keep reading to find out who did it and how.

I highly recommend this book and series.

Although I have loved all of Beverly Connor's previous books from both her series, I found this one a bit predictable but with too unbelievable a plot, if that makes sense. I highly recommend her other books but this one was light in the forensic detail, and a little too fantastic in the psychological details for me.

The Diane Fallon books just keep getting better. I was so taken in by the plot that I read the book in an afternoon. I just couldn't put it down and now I want to read the next one immediately. Stephanie Clanahan

This book is so exciting. The book is completely unpredictable and I love it. I actually couldn't put the book down. The forensic analysis that Diane Fallona and her team does seems so real, like an actual telvision show.
