RT Rating

Leave it to forensic anthropologist/caver/museum director Diane Fallon to discover both a body and a mystery in an unmapped cave. The mummified corpse is decades old, so Diane and her team face a challenge trying to uncover who it is and what happened.

When two more bodies are found in an abandoned quarry nearby, Diane wonders if there's a connection. The whole team realizes they've started something when Diane and Mike, the cavers who discovered the first body, are stabbed during a crowded funeral.

This is all happening because they've stumbled onto a mystery dating back
63 years -- one that someone wants
to keep permanently buried by any means necessary.

Life is never dull around Diane Fallon, thank goodness! One of award-wining author Connor's greatest strengths is her use of multifaceted, interweaving plotlines that keep you guessing until the end. With characters you care about and mysteries that are intriguing, this book is a terrific way
to spend your leisure time. (Dec., 400 pp., $7.99)
