Digger and Profession Rothschild was killed because of the mystery that they have uncovered and Angie wants to know why. Together with her friend and mentor, Angie follows every clue that Digger left her before dying in front of her. In the middle of the adventure, Angie is being chased by a gunman who wants to acquire what Angie has discovered but later on the people involve that not only one person wants them dead but rather two! What Digger and Professor Rothschild uncovered was a matter of life and death and nothing will stop Angie from finding it out. In addition to Angie's burden, they later realize that someone is leaking information that's why her killer is always there to find her.
Digger's Bones was a thrilling adventure and great read. It was not as I was expecting it to end but some parts are predictable but that doesn't outweigh the fact that the book is a great read. The story was well research and represented that it almost seem as if the story was true. The characters were like-able combined with a plot which is awesome, Digger's Bones is part of my favorite read for this year. I really loved Angie's character who is trust worthy and can be dependable. The supporting characters were awesome and compliments the main character. The ending was not a disappointment and the epilogue added the cherry on top.
While Angie Cooper is finishing her fluff piece for the paper, her new job, she receives a call unexpectedly from Digger. He is frantic and it is important that they meet.
As they sit across from each other, Angie notices that Digger is not himself, he continues to glance around frantically as he tells her that not only has one of her other colleagues, Professor Rothchild, been murdered, but he has what is the find of a life time. He will need her help. As he is talking, a well-dressed man in a business suit sits next to Digger at the table. The man, after asking him what he has told Angie so far, pulls out a gun and shoots Digger in the head.
Initially paralyzed with fear, Angie breaks away, running for her life, horrified at what she has just witnessed. The information that Digger has shared sounds unreal, and makes no sense. The Bones that he and Professor Rothchild have uncovered hold the clues to the murders of these two men. Angie makes a decision to follow up on Diggers clues and solve the mystery of the murder as well as the mystery of the bones.
Little does she know that the decision she has made will lead her into a past that will shake the very foundation of the religious world, as we know it. The information will lead her into a world of fear and death, betrayal and disbelief, but it will also heal a part of her that she thought bruised beyond all hope.Read more ›
Has Rothschild unearthed bones that will disprove Christianity? Is that why Vatican City has unleashed a sociopathic priest Brother Elias to stop the dig? Or has Rothschild unearthed bones that have the potential to fracture the United States government? Why else would a US Senator with an eye on the Presidency send his hitman after Angie?
Among the list of characters -- Dr. Christopher Lausen, her professor and mentor at Columbia -- FBI Agent Gage Tyrell -- fellow archeologist in Israel, Dr. Adel Haremb -- and Captain Henri Rousseau, the best known officer at the Jerusalem Interpol NCB, the National Central Bureau -- at least one of them will betray her. And at least one of them will find redemption.
Just like Angie's bad case of vertigo, you will find the horizon spinning as the clues lead you from one conclusion to another, and to one part of the globe to another. The author, Paul Mansfield Keefe, knows how to twist a story and how to keep subplots bubbling. He writes with authority on sites in Jerusalem and makes them come alive through his pen. If you like to try and figure out whodunit before the book ends, this one's definitely for you!
