Forensic anthropologist Diane Fallon has many of the hallmarks of a great character in crime fiction and will undoubtedly appeal to fans of Patricia Cornwell. This is the 4th title featuring Fallon and is a thrilling, page-turning crime novel that will keep you up long into the night. No need to read the other 3 titles before this one but if you enjoy this one, then I urge you to find time for the others, which are equally absorbing and taut crime novels.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Dead Past by Beverly Connor

Diane Fallon's crime scene unit is facing one of its worst ever cases: an explosion in a converted house has claimed many lives - from the students attending a party in one of the upstairs apartments to the junkies running a meth lab in the basement. Diane and her team will be sifting the evidence for days, searching the scene for any slight clue to the identities of the unrecognisable bodies.

The incident has a devastating impact on the local community – with most people knowing at least one of the victims. One of the party survivors was even a member of Dianeâs staff – lucky enough to escape with her life. Diane is determined to discover the root cause of the explosion. But she must do so while avoiding the frenzy of media interest, local government officials keen to assign blame and the political machinations of a chief fire inspector who will stop at nothing to get Dianeâs job…
