On a bright and crisp September morning, while walking a bucolic woodland trail, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains once buried deep beneath the forest grounds. Immediately she calls her husband, Peter, a former detective lieutenant with the LAPD, now working for the local Greenbury police. Within hours a vista of beauty and tranquility is transformed into a frenetic crime scene. The body has been interred for years, and there is scant physical evidence at the gravesite: a youthful skeleton, a skull wound, and long, dark strands of hair surrounding the bony frame. As Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, further investigate, they realize that they're most likely dealing with a missing student from the nearby Five Colleges of Upstate - a well-known and well-respected consortium of higher learning where Rina works.
And when more human remains are found in the same area, Decker and McAdams know this isn't just a one-off murder case. Short-staffed, and with no convenient entry into the colleges, Decker enlists Rina's help to act as the eyes and ears of campus gossip. Winding their way through a dangerous labyrinth of steely suspects and untouchable academics, Decker, McAdams, and Rina race to protect their community from a psychopathic killer still in the area - and on the hunt for a fresh victim.

Left me questioning
Rina stumbles upon a skeleton in the woods, opening up cold case after cold case, as Decker and McAdams start digging for answers. Decker does his usual job of asking all the right questions in the right way, as suspect after suspect starts appearing. This installment was somewhat of a reunion, because like suspects popping up, so did old acquaintances and family members from previous books. Without giving anything away, I think I can make the next statement safely, since only readers of the book will understand this last observation. Enjoyable as it was, the ending left me somewhat confused with the overlapping digger.
