Sintesi dell'editore

Faye Longchamp, back in school to pursue her archaeological aspirations, has landed a job as chief archaeologist for a rural development project, so she heads to the hills of Alabama with Joe, her Cherokee assistant. She’s looking forward to a legitimate dig and hopes to uncover the mystery of the Sujosa, an ethnic group of mysterious origin. The Sujosa have lived in Alabama’s most remote hills for centuries and have shown an impressive immunity to many diseases, including AIDS.

Late one night, Faye awakens to find the house in flames. She saves herself and one of her housemates, but her friend Carmen, the project historian, never had a chance. The suspicious death leads Faye to a different sort of investigation. Then within days, a teenage boy jumps from a cell phone tower that, when completed, will connect the Sujosa with the outside world. Now Faye must use her professional and personal skills to identify the killer and discover the long-buried secret of the Sujosa, as well.

"Faye Longchamp, girl archaeologist, is…in charge of finding the origins of an ethnic group of people in the Alabama hills.... Soon, Faye is fighting for her own life against someone who doesn’t want the secrets of the Sujosa revealed. A fascinating look at contemporary archaeology but also a twisted story of greed and its effects." ( Dallas Morning News)
"Evans’ second archaeological mystery is every bit as good as her debut,  Artifacts.… Faye makes a compelling heroine, and she’s supported by an interesting array of suspects.… Transcripts of Dr. Martinez’s interviews scattered throughout the narrative provide important clues for the discerning reader." ( Publishers Weekly)
"The locale is wonderfully described and beautifully etched for the reader. A compelling read that holds the reader's attention throughout." ( Midwest Book Review)

Better Than the first

This is quickly becoming one of my favorite mystery series. It's filled with mystery, action, and wonderful characters. The plot is believable and and has a fast pace. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Great and provocative!

While the Sunoco people are fictional in this story I found it fascinating to think of ethic group pocketed around the US. I ended up exploring the the history of the Melungeon, Red Bone, Creole, Gullah ...groups and their history. Thank you!

Very Interesting.

While the group of people are fictional, they are based in reality. My family always thought that we had American Indian heritage, but when my Father, who had olive complexion and black hair did his DNA there was no American Indian blood, but mostly English and Portuguese.

Could not do it anymore

I tried I truly did. I finished first book even though it was a struggle. Way to much information for me, sometimes less is more. I was hoping the second book picked up with less details that I felt was unnecessary. I was wrong this one is the same.

Too Long

It was a good story line.
1. It was just too long.
2. Fay doesn't really do much archaeology work.
3. Really like Joe.

Another winner

What a terrific series. The two unassuming main characters, Faye and Joe are basically loners who are plunked down among a divergent group of people due to her career as an archaeologist (Joe is her assistant). They are a couple of smart people, but in different ways. Joe has some maturing experiences, which are handled nicely. Some of the people they are around are openly hostile to Faye though they don't have the guts to be hostile to Joe because he is an imposing figure. While Joe and Faye are best friends it's clear that they haven't quite figured out how they feel about each other. They are both interesting characters, and since they are both attractive people, other people are definitely interested in them. The archaeology aspects are intereting to me, and this story also involved genetics. A team of scientists are trying to discover the origins of a distinct group of people in rural Alabama. The murder mystery is tautly written and interesting right up to the final reveal. Looking forward to the next installment. What is up with that cover art? Why is there a scared white girl on it? This doesn't tally with one person in this book.

Archaeology/murder

This book will be fun for readers who enjoy their mysteries and love digging in the dirt, the past and the what -ifs. The author creates past lives that ring so true you will keep listening. Then you will be sorry when the last page is read.
