Great story. I enjoy her style and character intertwining. This one starts out caving and of course a body is found -- what does one expect in this genre :)
There are a number of turns in this story -- some expected; some surprising. The final ending that resolves all the loose ends was odd, not expected but fit. I was disappointed in that the author thanks someone about their knowledge on knives but the story didn't bring all that much information about knives to the forefront.
The characters are distinct and well-drawn, and the writing is brisk. Weird as it seems, though, I knew the "who-dun-it" long before I understood the "why-dun-it." It's weird because my knowledge of the "who" was erroneously deduced from an unrelated subplot handled later in the story. That was my only surprise: the strange subplot that threaded its way through the story.
Beverly Conner is on her way to being another Patricia Cromwell. This story opens with forensic anthropoligist Diane Fallon and her caving team find a very old skeleton in the cave. Soon after she and Mike, one of her caving team are stabbed. They find a dead woman in the woods and two more bodies in a querry. Not long after that an old car with skeleton in it is found. Without a link to the victims Diane can't fathom the connection, but someonc watching can. Will Diane and hre team figure it out before one of them are hurt or worse.
Enjoyed this series of forensic superwomen. She runs a museum which adds some interest to the storyline. Highly recommended.
Excellent book about anthropolgist Dian Fallon finding a decades old skeleton in a cave, which leads to more modern murders. Great read - I could hardly put it down.
