Some skeletons just won't stay hidden. No one knows that better than University of Georgia archaeologist Lindsay Chamberlain. But even she is shocked when a skeleton dressed in its Sunday best falls out of a packing crate in her lab. The dusty crate had been stored in a kudzu-covered shed on her grandfather's farm for more than sixty years. When other crates from the shed are discovered containing stashes of valuable artifacts, Lindsay begins to wonder if her beloved grandfather, who was a prominent archaeologist and her mentor, could have been a thief, a looter -- even a murderer?
As Lindsay struggles with these troubling questions, she is asked by a local private investigator to help locate the wooded grave of Shirley Foster, a missing University of Georgia faculty member. The investigation leads to more questions than answers. Why did Shirley Foster lie to the world about her life? Who wanted her dead?
Secrets and lies loom large in Lindsay's life, both professional and personal. Artifacts disappear from the university. She and her students are threatened. With her job, her reputation, and her life on the line, Lindsay must solve these mysteries and find a thief and a killer before the police come for her.

The third Lindsay Chamberlain novel has proved to be the best yet. It is quite well-written and gives little away on the journey to a surprising but reasonable conclusion. The plot was interesting and it keeps the reader guessing. I absolutely do not miss the hokey flashbacks so prevalent in the preceding novels of this series. All in all, it has been a fantastic read and I look forward to the next one. Stephanie Clanahan
I can't review this book as the seller did not send it to me even though it's been over a month & I paid a very high shipping cost.
