Synopsis

Carved in Bone by Jefferson Bass

A woman's corpse lies hidden in a cave in the mountains of East Tennessee. Undiscovered for thirty years, her body has been transformed into a near-perfect mummy. Clueless, the local police enlist the help of Dr Bill Brockton, renowned anthropologist. But even he is baffled by the case - unfolding in an environment, where nothing is what it seems.
