Publisher's Summary

Faye Longchamp-Mantooth, who runs a small archaeological consulting firm, is in Oklahoma so she and Joe can join his father, Sly Mantooth, in dispersing his mother's ashes. While there, Faye is serving as archaeology consultant on the reopening of a site closed down decades before when an archaeologist disappeared. The Muscogee Creek Nation intends to create a park, if nothing sacred lies in the soil. But the bones that emerge as the backhoe completes its work prove to be those of Dr. Sophia Townsend, killed by a blow to the head. Now tribal police hire Faye to investigate. In so doing, Faye learns that Sly Mantooth knows more about the dead woman than he has admitted.

Sophia Townsend had possessed a forceful sexual magnetism that she didn't hesitate to use to manipulate everyone around her, breaking hearts and destroying marriages. Was she killed by a lover, a wife, or Sly Mantooth? Or was it due to greed or fame? Faye's obsession with this case tests her professional ethics as well as her marriage. Such was the power of Sophia Townsend that, 29 years after her murder, she wreaks havoc once again.

Awesome

This might be the best book in the series. But I say that about all of the books. I love Faye and Joe and their adventures. Cassandra Campbell does a wonderful job giving this characters a voice and bringing them alive. I want more!!!

So glad Faye is back.

What did you love best about Burials?

I have really liked this series since I first happened upon it. I have always found Faye Longchamp an interesting character. The book prior to Burials, Isolation was difficult to get through. It is difficult to see a strong character floundering and flounder was all that Faye did in Isolation. So I hesitated to purchase Burials but I am glad I did. I remembered how much I enjoy the series all over again.

What does Cassandra Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Cassandra Campbell HAS to be the narrator, she is Faye, Joe, the whole world of Dr. Faye Longchamp-Mantooth.
