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…

Praise for the novels of Beverly Connor
“Calls to mind the forensic mysteries of Aaron Elkins and Patricia Cornwell. However, Connor’s sleuth infuses the mix with her own brand of spice as a pert and brainy scholar in the forensic analysis of bones…Chases, murder attempts and harrowing rescues add to this fast-paced adventure.”—Chicago Sun-Times
“Connor combines smart people, fun people, and dangerous people in a novel hard to put down.”—The Dallas Morning News
“Connor grabs the reader with her first sentence and never lets up until the book’s end…The story satisfies both as a mystery and as an entrée into the fascinating world of bones…Add Connor’s dark humor, and you have a multidimensional mystery that deserves comparison with the best of Patricia Cornwell.”—Booklist (starred review)
“In Connor’s latest multifaceted tale, the plot is serpentine, the solution ingenious, the academic politics vicious…chock-full of engrossing anthropological and archeological detail.”—Publishers Weekly
