Kylie Brant Waking the Dead
by Kylie Brant

Former forensic anthropologist Caitlin Fleming knows bones. So the investigator is the first one called when seven sets of skeletal remains are found dumped in a makeshift graveyard in the Oregon wilderness. Each skeleton bears the same distinctive marks. And each is minus a skull.

Cait needs ourdoors guide Zach Sharper for one reason only— to help her find her way through the Willamette Forest as she pieces together clues.
