Based on the glowing reviews I read about this book, I was delighted to find a new (to me) mystery writer. However, after slogging through the book, I was extremely disappointed. I found the many storylines to be just patched together and the characters very one dimensional. One quirky gesture keeps reappearing in the book -- the number of times that somebody "runs his thumb over Lindsay's lips" or "touches her lips with his fingers" (usually right after digging up some skeleton part - ugh!). All in all, a very juvenile read. Too bad.
