Ardis Cole is at it again in this new adventure, Unmarked Grave by Loretta Jackson and Vickie Britton. In this new mystery, Ardis heads to Scotland to help a friend. Bruce McBrier has uncovered a skull in his backyard and wants Ardis to help him reconstruct it. This relic has distinctive features and Bruce believes its historical background could be of an ancestral battle.

Ardis is on the job and soon finds out the skull Bruce has discovered is of a recently murdered victim. The more Ardis and Bruce dig into this mystery it becomes clear that someone wants the identity of the skull to stay hidden. Will Ardis find out who is behind the mystery before it is too late?

Unmarked Grave takes readers on a journey of family secrets. The twists in the story were unsuspected and shocked me once I discovered the culprit's identity. I enjoyed this story because of its mysterious nature and also because I couldn't figure it out until the very end. It kept my attention and I enjoyed the characters. I recommend Unmarked Grave to others.

Another excellent book by this clever team of writers. You can't go wrong with archeology and murder. Clever plot and good characterization. I look forward to other books in this series.

Ahhhhhh, Scotland, land of intrigue, betrayal, murder and an ancient struggle with "the auld enemy, the English." In UNMARKED GRAVE, history lives in the McBrier and Lloyd families whose castles date back to 1295.

Their age-old feud erupts again with Bruce McBrier's discovery of a skull he believes belonged to his long missing ancestor, Sir William, who would have been the fourth Lord of Venwell. The neighboring castle belongs to the Lloyds, who backed Henry VIII and fought for England. Sir William rode with James IV in defense of Scotland.

Bruce wants Ardis Cole, an archaeologist from Chicago, to authenticate the skull by a facial reconstruction. He's writing a book to indict Sir Wendell, third Lord of Lloyd, as the brutal killer of his ancestor, Sir William. The final chapter of Bruce's book depends on authentication of the skull.

Opening lines:"This is the place where I found the skull," Bruce McBrier said, pointing toward the narrow but deep river that wound through the valley toward the Firth of Tay. "It either washed ashore or was simply uncovered by the recent rains."

On a tour of the castle garden, Bruce tells Ardis that Sir William has returned to keep Venwell from falling into the wrong hands.
(Quote)
"An odd expression appeared on his craggy face that Ardis could not quite interpret. He did not speak for a long time. "Strange things have been happening ever since I found Sir William's skull!"
"Don't tell me. It's a haunted skull," Ardis joked. "And Sir William is trying to get it back."
...
"Venwell Castle is still filled with sorrow," Bruce said, "just as it was then, centuries ago. And new sorrows attract old sorrows."
(End Quote)

There are sorrows aplenty at Venwell Castle.

The twists and turn of clues lead in almost every direction. The only character not implicated is Ardis Cole. Very good book.
