A new-to-me author and series....I love finding these and especially so when they turn out to be a gritty quick-turn-the-page-gotta-see-what's-gonna-happen-next type of read.

Reporter Lewis Cole’s friend Jon Erickson has made finding evidence of a Viking settlement in New Hampshire his avocation. It seems he’s finally found proof and has invited Lewis over to see it. But when Lewis arrives at Jon’s house he finds the police there and Jon murdered.

This was surprisingly good. I saw the author on a game show and he mentioned that he was a writer. I looked him up! I will probably try another one by this author.

When his neighbor Jon Ericson is found shot to death, Cole tries to find the killer. Ericson, an amateur archaeologist, had long been searching for evidence that ancient Vikings had landed on their local beach, a good bit further south than generally thought.
