Lindsay Chamberlain is a forensic anthropologist and an archeologist which means she can investigate the murders she uncovers while onsite at a dig. She's excellent at unraveling the mystery even when the evidence is a hundred plus years old. She's also pretty darn good at discovering who is trying to kill her in the present too.

After a conference, Lindsay is kidnapped, buried alive and left for dead. When she digs her way out of the grave and is taken to the hospital, she has amnesia and doesn'...more
If you have read any of the first four books of the Lindsay Chamberlain mysteries you know already Beverly Connor is a good writer. Read Airtight Case and you will know she is a great writer. Airtight Case is simply the best of the series.

One thing I enjoy in particular about Connor's stories is how she introduces the element of mystery literally with the first few sentences, and we are already asking our questions and eager for the answers. In this story, we find Lindsay as a bruised amnesia pa...more
This book begins with tense action as a woman with no memory is in the hospital recovering from being buried alive. Her husband comes to bring her home and she refuses to go, running away in the woods. She is deeply afraid of what she doesn't know but feels wisps of intuition and dread. A man comes and coaxes her out and takes her home. At home, she remembers who she is and that the man is her lover and home is truly home. It is Lindsay Chamberlain, forensic anthropologist, academic, and a smart...more
This was probably one of the best Lindsay Chamberlain mysteries I've read. The story was interesting, it started with a great hook, and I really enjoyed trying to solve this mystery. I was really surprised when I found out who the culprits were. As always, the historical backstory in this novel was extremely interesting, and I'm really glad that the mystery of the child deaths were solved. John still played a role in this installment, and I was happy about that because I enjoy seeing them togeth...more
I really liked this series. The main character is forensic anthropologist Lindsay Chamberlain. I think my love of the show "Bones" is what got me interested in the author's other series, which follows another forensic anthropoligist/museum director Diane Farrell. In the last Farrell book, Chamberlain was an integral character, so that made me want to go back and hunt down her series. I wish there were more books, because I found that I liked the Lindsay books better than the Diane ones.
This book was unlike any other I have read. It revolves around archeology. There is a mystery from centuries ago, mixed in with a present-day mystery. I thought it had really likable characters, and some that you wouldn't like and it was rich in history. I learned quite a bit about the Smoky Mountain area dating back to before the Revolutionary War. Quite interesting and good mysteries to boot. I would love to read more from this series.
Woohoo! This was a really great book. I have very much enjoyed this series and the Diane Fallon series as well. Beverly Connor writes really intelligent mysteries, and I find them to be a lot of fun.

Easy to read - enjoyed how Connor tied all the pieces together.
story opens with Lindsey having amnesia, but she recovers and uncovers murder and forgery of historical documents. Excellent series.
Great beginning but I should have started the series at one instead of five. I think I would have understood the relationships better.
I really like her writing style. It's also forensic anthropology and a great mystery novel.

I'm Beverly Connor and I love archaeology. I worked in Georgia and South Carolina as an archaeologist doing both fieldwork and analyzing artifacts. I also love mysteries. I combined these two loves and now write mysteries in which I weave my professional experience as an archaeologist into stories of murder and intrigue in both my Diane Fallon Forensic Investigation series and Lindsay Chamberlain...more
