Old Bones


Old Bones by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

Reviewed by L. Bennett


Rookie FBI agent Corrie Swanson is investigating the mysterious theft of heads and the murder of a young woman, all persons with the same surname. Historian Clive Benton has been investigating the Donner Party's ill-fated trek and believes he has new information. The Santa Fe Archaeological Institute decides to fund an expensive excavation and data analysis undertaken by their lead archaeologist Nora Kelly. Things come together in a high mountain valley where Nora relies on Clive's information, Corrie is an unwelcome visitor, and some wranglers turn up dead. What in the world can these events have in common? Only the intriguing plot penned by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child can answer that question. This is an engaging, fanciful, but nonetheless entertaining mystery that combines history with modern science in more ways than one. I enjoyed it.
