    One thought on “Questionable Remains”

    1. This book has 2 parallel stories, one takes place about 400 years ago, the other in present day (or rather early 1990's would be my guess).I didn't pay as much attention to the older story, it just didn't work for me. The latter story was full of suspense and lots of detail to archaeology finds and how they find the relicts. The only part that got a bit drawn out was towards the end - I'm not going to spoil it for anyone saying what was going on through that part. A bit more of woowoo in this on [...]

    2. I enjoyed this story. This might really have been 3 1/2 stars.She alternates life with Lindsay with tales from the past when the French and Spanish were fighting over what is now the SE US and the natives were a mere incidental, frequently used as slaves. These tales had important information for what was happening with Lindsay. But I found them a little disconcerting. They did have a purpose.Interesting caving story and brings in the dispute between archaeology and native peoples - who have the [...]

    3. I liked this book for the most part, but not as crazy about the side story that took place in the past with the conquistadors and the Native Americans. It paralleled the present day mystery that was going on, but it was distracting for me.

    4. Two stories intertwined, I was only interested in oneSuch I bought book for the modern crime novel, I skipped the early story it might have been good, I'll never know.

    5. Athens, Georgia author Connor serves up another gripping tale in the second installment of the Lindsay Chamberlain mystery series. Still nursing an emotional scar or two following the events in A Rumor of Bones, Lindsay, a top forensic archaeologist, is asked to investigate the mysterious deaths of three adventurous cavers whose skeletal remains are found deep in the bowels of a Tennessee cave called, appropriately enough, Hell's Slide. How Lindsay is offered the mystery is in itself a fascinati [...]

    6. I stumbled upon this book many years ago, but never had the time to read it. I wish I had. This was a great mystery about a forensic archaeologist. It reminds me of the Bones series. The story jumps between events during the Spanish exploration of the Americas and a modern day mystery. In many ways, the author takes three different mysteries and beautifully ties them together. Our hero, Lindsay Chamberlain, is on vacation following giving testimony in a controversial case. The murderer escapes c [...]

    7. after having read many of her newer works, reading this one constantly threw me. It was just minor little things, the car phone, and the motel phone. My first thought was, " who uses motel phones?" Compared to the others I have read this book is written very similar and mentions several of the things the characters in her Diane Fallon series like to do. I was a nice contrast to see this character struggling with knowledge about caves, whereas Diane Fallon is an avid caver. Overall I think John, [...]

    8. In this second novel in the Lindsay Chamberalin series, the forensic anthropologist professor is called to examine some bones in a farmer's field. She identifies the as a 500 year old European who appeared to be living as a native. Intrigued, she and her students beging to excavate the site.The wife of the farmer asks Lindsay to look at the bones of her brother's grave to prove, as the sister suspected, that he was murdered. As a favor to the family, she begins to investigate assuming that she w [...]

    9. So happy to have discovered Lindsey Chamberlain. I have been a huge fan of the Gideon Oliver series by Aaron Elkins for years, however I read each new installment in the series too quickly and then have to wait so long before Mr. Elkins finishes the next. Lindsay Chamberlain is a different character than Gideon Oliver but the forensic anthropology is similar. Lindsay gets herself into more trouble than Gideon and she does more historical archeology so they are of a similar genre but very differe [...]

    10. I liked the second book even better than the first. That always augurs well for the series. Connor has got me interested in archaeology, a field I never dreamed would appeal to me. The parallel stories in this book were interesting although I think the imagining of the older story was a little too long. However, I liked how it was woven into the end. I am also growing fonder of Dr Lindsay Chamberlain by the 'book-hour'.

    11. Lindsey got involved in a mystery just by testifying in a murder case. At least that is where it starts. The person is found guilty then escapes from prison. While Lindsey goes on vacation she helps a family that has an old body in there field and tells them she'll look into a missing person/ accidental death case which gets her in more trouble than she believes is possible. Can she figure out why people want her off the case and find out what is going on? Very good story.

    12. Yes, I'm still enjoying this series. However I am now a little over the author's apparent obsession with caves. I mean making Diane Fallon a caver in the previous series I read was one thing. But now to have the next character embroiled in more (albeit inadvertent) caving. It's a little tedious.Also, I was disappointed in the end to read that (view spoiler)[ the Indian back-story was entirely made up :( (hide spoiler)]

    13. I absolutely LOVED this book! I really enjoyed reading the story lines in conjunction with one another, and I loved how everything in the past connected very well with what was happening present day. I think that really captures the heart of archaeology in a nutshell. This is by far one of the best Beverly Connor books I've read.

    14. Again Beverly Connor links the past with the present. This time, the past is about a renegade Spanish conquistadors who lived 429 years ago. The author places a map in the front of her books of where the stroy takes place. It's helpful in entering that world. A good read.

    15. I love the way the author incorporated the story of the ancient people into this story. I thought it was a very original idea.

    16. A good read that carried me along although at one point suspension of disbelief became difficult. Overall a worthwhile read.
