Some skeletons just won't stay hidden. No one knows that better than University of Georgia archaeologist Lindsay Chamberlain. Still, she is shocked when a skeleton dressed in its Sunday best falls out of a packing crate that had been stored in a kudzu-covered shed on her grandfather's farm for more than sixty years. When other crates are discovered, each containing a stash of valuable artifacts, Lindsay begins to wonder. Could her beloved grandfather, a prominent archaeologist, have been a thief, a looter-even a murderer? As Lindsay struggles with these troubling questions, she helps a local private investigator locate the wooded grave of Shirley Foster, a missing faculty member. Lindsay is sucked into the investigation, which leads to more questions that 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, as she struggles to find solutions to the mysteries. When artifacts disappear from the university and she and her students are threatened, the stakes are raised. With her job, her reputation, and her life on the line, Lindsay must find a thief and a killer before the police assume she is ultimately responsible. **

Georgia forensic anthropologist Dr. Lindsay Chamberlain (A Rumor of Bones, Cumberland, 1996) identifies the skeletal remains found on a farm as those of a Spanish conquistador, then agrees to investigate the much more recent "accidental" death of a long-missing spelunker. Her subsequent itinerary, though burdened with the bones of slaughtered Indians and animals, puts her in contact with an archaeologist who knew the dead caver. Shortly after they talk, he is murdered. Question is, will Chamberlain ever find the connection? Forensics and stories of conquest add authenticity but slow the plot without enhancing dramatic tension. A leisurely read, then, for larger collections. Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review "Connor's style is original and fresh, and her heroine is a woman of the 90s . . . educated, intelligent, independent." -- The Midwest Book Review "The first pages establish Chamberlain's uncanny expertise." -- Chicago Sun-Times
