More About the Author
It's no surprise that Lillian and her long-suffering husband have wandered countless British single-track roads, from Orkney to Dover and back again. Also, just for variety, she has excavated the Biblical city of Gezer in Israel, worn a pink and mauve sari to a wedding in Hyderabad, India, searched for Middle Earth in New Zealand, and sung "Waltzing Matilda" in a haunted cottage in the Australian outback.
Being generally a mild-mannered individual, Lillian has yet to throw anyone across the room with her tai chi skills. Nor has she stabbed anyone with her knitting needles or slammed anyone's fingers except her own in the cover of her piano keyboard.

When Matilda arrived at Corcester, she knew that the case was going to be harder to break than she thought. First off, she had to work with the pompous head of the dig, Howard Sweeney, who always seems to get the credit for others' hard work. Because Howard does his best to avoid work in any way shape or form, Matilda is stuck looking after the student volunteers. She cares for all of them, but she is particularly concerned about the lovely young Ashley Walraven, who seems to have taken up with a wanderer who could potentially be the murderer. Then Matilda has to deal with the belligerent owner of a nearby horse farm, who owns the land they are excavating, and is in it for the money. It wouldn't be so bad if she could get Gareth to believe in her visions of the past and to work with her instead of going off on his own and not telling her vital information. With so many suspects, her work and her disturbingly realistic visions of the Roman fort when it was still in use centuries ago, Matilda will have a hard time catching the killer before he or she strikes again...Read more ›
I also liked the setting, an archaeological dig in an English town, the glimpses of the ancient past when Matilda sees and hears the ghosts of a Roman couple and their Celtic female servant, the mystery plot itself, which involves murder and antiquities theft, the diverse assortment of characters, and the exciting, satisfying resolution.

Her books have a good story line and likeable characters. I think she is too wordy. She could shorten her narrative and have a real cliff-hanger.Published 3 months ago by M M Evans
Another of Lillian Stewart Carl's thoughtful, history-based and mythology-laced books. I can't get enough of them.Published 10 months ago by Ksschultz
Carl's interest in and explanation of the magic of religion and her probing examination of character make this book memorable.Published on June 5, 2013 by Linda
