This was a very interesting story especially pulling in the details on how history of the community helped in the 'dig'. I especially liked the twist at the very end that
neatly wrapped up the 'why' of the mystery of the historical families.
WARNING do not read this as your first Lindsay Chamberlain novel -- you need the background from other novels to understand her since she starts out with amnesia.
very strong series about a forensic anthropologist that is an amateur sleuth. Author goes into deepth on Lindsay's experience on a dig on an old house. Very interesting side story. You always get educated in her books! Enjoy.
I like this series of books about Lindsay Chamberlain but this one was the best so far! It would make a really good mystery movie.
Lindsay Chamberlain is a forensic anthropologist and an archeologist which means she can investigate the murders she uncovers while onsite at a dig. She's excellent at unraveling the mystery even when the evidence is a hundred plus years old. She's also pretty darn good at discovering who is trying to kill her in the present too.
After a conference, Lindsay is kidnapped, buried alive and left for dead. When she digs her way out of the grave and is taken to the hospital, she has amnesia and doesn't remember anything including her own name. As an archaeologist, digging up graves is a huge part of what she does so this event was very traumatizing for her and her career. Her boss sends her on an "easy" dig so she can regain her confidence and sense of self. Unfortunately, danger lurks on the dig and it is up to Lindsay to once again rescue herself from imminent danger. Who of the many people at the dig site wishes her harm? With all the little "pranks" happening, Lindsay is scared to death and determined to figure out who is the culprit and why they are trying so hard to kill her.
This is the second book I've read in this series and though it is long and involved, it is very well written and the bag guys are well disguised until the very end. Cleverly done and a very enjoyable mystery.
