Beverly Connor’s “outstanding series” (Booklist) returns with a gripping new installment that sends forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon hot on the trail of a stone-cold killer…
Local politics get nasty when Rosewood, Georgia, elects a new mayor—and the honorable Spencer Jefferies makes it his first order of business to replace Diane Fallon with an incompetent crony as head of the crime lab. But just as Diane is adjusting to life without murder, a double whammy hits: within a 24-hour period, the newly appointed chief of police and the mayor himself are shot dead.
Back on the job, Diane sees, but can’t quite believe, the evidence damning the former chief of detectives as the shooter. Someone with plenty to gain intends to get away with more than murder, and as the investigation reveals an ever-widening web of corruption and treachery, Diane realizes that no one is safe—least of all her.
