About the Book

Lance McNabb expected the assignment would offer a welcome diversion from his usual fare as a private investigator:  exposing insurance scams, tailing unfaithful spouses, and litigation research. All the young and beautiful Lisa Allen asked him to do was research her family history.

Lisa’s grandfather, Chuck Elder,  is adamantly opposed to the project: he calls it “digging up bones.” Lance McNabb has little difficulty in uncovering some genealogical information, but he also finds out why Lisa’s grandfather opposes their efforts. Dark secrets, including murder, are part of what some of Norwood’s leading citizens prefer to stay buried. Some are willing to kill again, to keep those secrets in the grave.

In Digging Up Bones, we find that shaking the family tree can be downright lethal.
