The sequel to Ashes to Ashes
After months of long-distance phone calls, Rebecca Reid is thrilled to be working with Michael Campbell again, this time on a dig at Rudesburn Priory in the Scottish Borders. It’s rumored that Robert the Bruce's heart was buried there, and that the abbey's last prioress, Anne Douglas, still haunts its ruins.
Michael and Rebecca have to work with a self-important archaeologist, Jeremy Kleinfelter, whose reputation is on the line after he was accused of salting his previous dig. They also have to deal with the townspeople, who want the dig to be successful---and who don't know about Jeremy's shady past---and four volunteers working on the dig, loose cannons, every one, each with a secret in his or her past.
Then Sheila Fitzgerald, Michael's ex-girlfriend, appears, intent on filming a documentary about the dig.
Uncovering a medieval murder mystery makes the tense situation at the dig even tenser. It's the very fresh body in a very old grave that blows it wide open---and tests their relationship for once and for all. For despite ghosts, music, and mayhem, the dig must go on.
