But forensic anthropologist Lindsay Chamberlain had not bargained for this kind of trouble when she signed on with the archaeological dig at the Jasper Creek Site. Who is the mysterious woman unearthed in burial twenty-three?Since she's been in the ground fifty years or so, she certainly isn't part of the ancient Indian village they have been excavating. The trouble is, she's not the only unexpected find. Body after body has surfaced in the town of Merry Claymore, and some of the graves are very fresh.
When the local sheriff asks for her help in identifying the victims, Lindsay can't say no. As she and her crew are drawn into the maelstrom of suspicion, accusation, and terror raging between those who want the truth unearthed and those who want it to remain buried, Lindsay's special expertise with bones could be the death of her.
A "Rumor of Bones" is the first volume in the Lindsay Chamberlain mysteries, which will feature solutions to crimes that did not happen just yesterday. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
