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.

Beverly Connor’s “fabulous forensic investigation series” (Mystery Books) featuring forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon proves that the past is never really forgotten—and that some memories can kill…
 
As a young girl, Juliet Price witnessed a brutal act of violence—and then became the victim of one herself. For years, Juliet’s traumatized mind hid the events from her. Then she saw a television show featuring an unsolved cold case, and the horrors come back to her in her nightmares.
 
Diane Fallon realizes that Juliet’s shattered visions recall not one, but two intertwined crimes—crimes that Diane intends to uncover. But someone else also saw the TV program. Someone who has emerged from the shadows to continue the killing they began eighteen years ago…

“Call[ing] to mind the forensic mysteries of Aaron Elkins and Patricia Cornwell” (Chicago Sun-Times), Beverly Connor’s spellbinding series proves that the dead do tell tales—and reveal secrets that can threaten the living in the most chilling of ways…
 
In the depths of an unmapped cave, forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon makes an astonishing discovery: the decades-old skeleton of a caving victim. Soon, the remains of two more bodies are found—one in an old car submerged in the waters of an abandoned quarry, another buried in the Georgia woods. At first, with nothing to link the dissimilar victims except desiccated bones, Diane can’t fathom the connection. But someone in her shadow does. It’s the key to a mystery that reaches back seventy years in a heritage of love, greed, and murder—and an unearthed family secret that still holds the power to kill.
