Archaeologist Dr Elizabeth Pimms thoroughly enjoys digging up old skeletons.

But when she is called home from Egypt after a family loss, she has to sacrifice her passions for the sake of those around her.

Attempting to settle into her new role as a librarian, while also missing her boyfriend, Elizabeth is distracted from her woes by a new mystery: a royal Olmec cemetery discovered deep in the Mexican jungle, with a 3000-year-old ballplayer who may have been a woman.

Dr Pimms soon discovers there are more skeletons to deal with than just those covered in dirt...

Suitable for readers young and old, Olmec Obituary is the first novel in a delightful crime series: Dr Pimms, Intermillennial Sleuth.
Really cold cases.
