England, 1783. In Island of Bones, Crowther’s haunting past is at last revealed. For years he has pursued his forensic studiesand the occasional murder investigationfar from his family estate. But an ancient tomb there will reveal a wealth of secrets. When laborers discover an extra body inside, the lure of the mystery brings Crowther home at last.
