Publisher's Summary

Sharyn McCrumb's Edgar Award-winning series features the savvy exploits of forensic anthropologist and not-so-amateur sleuth Elizabeth MacPherson.

In MacPherson's Lament, family troubles in Virginia spin out of control, forcing Elizabeth to leave her adopted Scotland to sort out the multiplying problems. Struggling to start a new law practice in Danville, Virginia, Bill MacPherson will handle almost any case, even his parents' divorce. But when he takes on a realtor's job - selling an antebellum mansion for eight elderly daughters of Confederate veterans - he only earns criminal charges. As Elizabeth confronts her panicked sibling, she wonders if even she can untangle this web of deceit and keep her brother out of prison.

Best-selling author Sharyn McCrumb's masterful storytelling is guaranteed to captivate listeners as she deftly combines the past with the present, humor with suspense. Barbara Rosenblat's first-rate performance leads you on a luxurious armchair tour of the South alongside the spunky Elizabeth.

An excellent story

An excellent story and Barbara Rosenblat does a wonderful job reading it. I love the “dip” into history that is in so many of Ms McCrumb’s books.
