Floating Souls : The Canal Murders
Watery graves, iconic tatoos and ancient bones come together in the novel Floating Souls: The Canal Murders. When the bodies of young women are found floating in New Orleans drainage canals, Maggie Andrepont, local forensic anthropologist, is called in to help find a pattern to the homicides and to profile a perpetrator. Complicating matters, an old flame from graduate school, now Minister of Antiquities in Rome, asks for her immediate assistance to sort out the mystery of ancient bodies found in a famous campanile in Venice, Italy. Juggling work on corpses on two continents challenges Maggie in ways no one could have predicted. Though confident in her professional expertise, Maggie is not as secure in her personal life. A secret history with the parish coroner, an overeager amateur archaeologist, and intrusions by a documentary producer are distracting her from her mission. When it turns out that someone is stalking Maggie, the tension ratchets up -- leading to a startling conclusion to this taut and fascinating sleuthing experience.
