Old Bones
Old Bones | Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child
#1 bestselling authors Preston & Child bring the true story of the ill-fated Donner Party to new life in a thrilling blend of archaeology, history, murder, and suspense. Nora Kelly, a young curator at the Santa Fe Institute of Archaeology, is approached by historian Clive Benton with a once-in-a-lifetime proposal: to lead a team in search of the so-called "Lost Camp" of the tragic Donner Party. This was a group of pioneers who earned a terrible place in American history when they became snow-bound in the California mountains in 1847, their fate unknown until the first skeletonized survivors stumbled out of the wilderness, raving about starvation, murder-and cannibalism. Benton tells Kelly he has stumbled upon an amazing find: the long-sought diary of one of the victims, which has an enigmatic description of the Lost Camp. Nora agrees to lead an expedition to locate and excavate it-to reveal its long-buried secrets. Once in the mountains, however, they learn that discovering the camp is only the first step in a mounting journey of fear. For as they uncover old bones, they expose the real truth of what happened, one that is far more shocking and bizarre than mere cannibalism. And when those ancient horrors lead to present-day violence on a grand scale, rookie FBI agent Corrie Swanson is assigned the case...only to find that her first investigation might very well be her last.

From the creators of my favourite book series (Agent Pendergast 🙌) comes a brand new series with two intelligent and strong female leads. A mix of archeological history and FBI procedural, this first book did not disappoint! Looking forward to the next instalment. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #Booked2019 #Booked2019Summer #bookgiftedtoyou #seasonalreadingchallenge

Old bones is the start of a new series by Preston and Child. It centres on two female leads who have made appearances in their other books. It mixes history, archaelogy and adventure. The story focuses on the Donner party and a lost treasure. The history has been tweaked a little but the story is overall satisfying. For fans of the duo this won't disappoint and should gain some new fans. Sure to lead a surge in attention of what really happened.

Evening plans. I couldn‘t have chosen a more aptly titled read, considering that I‘m dealing with a very painful back problem at the moment!

Seriously though, this latest from Preston and Child kicks off a Nora Kelly focused series and features FBI agent Corrie Swanson in a plot centered around the Donner Party! If I‘ve got to be laid up, at least I can be thoroughly entertained, right?

Bookzombie I have got to catch up with the Pendergast series so I can read this one. Hope you feel better soon. 💗 4mo
BeckyLeJ Thanks, @Louise! 4mo
BeckyLeJ Thanks, @Bookzombie! Btw I‘m super behind with the Pendergast books. I think Cemetery Dance was the last one I read. I think you‘re safe if you‘ve read that far. I‘d also suggest reading Thunderhead but you can get by without it. 4mo
Bookzombie @BeckyLeJ Good to know. I have read Thunderhead and I think Cemetery Dance is my next one. 🙂 4mo
