Unmarked Grave (Book 2 of The Ardis Cole Series)
“… superbly crafted and entertaining mystery adventure …” — Midwest Book Review
Ardis travels to Scotland to do a facial reconstruction on a skull her friend Bruce McBrier has discovered in the woods outside his ancestral castle. Because of an ancient ax buried in the skull, Bruce presumes the skull to be a historical relic, possibly the remains of a medieval ancestor murdered in battle. When Ardis makes the shocking discovery that the remains are that of a more recent murder, Constable Mark Ridley asks her help in going ahead with the facial reconstruction in hopes the victim can be identified. But someone is willing to go to great lengths … even murder … to keep the skull’s deadly secret.
Mystery writers and sisters, Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson, are co-authors of more than 40 mysteries, suspense, and western novels, plus numerous short stories, and the adventure continues in their first edition of The Ardis Cole Series, Unmarked Grave. Good clean reading for all!
Each book in The Ardis Cole Series takes place in an exotic location. The authors have travelled to such places as Peru, Russia, Egypt, China, and Australia in preparation for this series.
