Diablo Mesa (Nora Kelly Book 3) Kindle Edition
Fan favourites Nora Kelly and Corrie Swanson return in the new thriller from international bestsellers Preston & Child.
Forced to leave her post at the Santa Fe Archaeological Institute, Nora Kelly is left without a job and without any prospects. So when billionaire Lucas Tappan invites her to lead his excavation of the infamous Roswell landing site, she has no choice but to make a decision that could destroy her reputation.
Armed with a healthy dose of scepticism, Nora reluctantly agrees to visit. When the preliminary scans of the area reveal a suspected Native American burial site, Nora takes a closer look.
But this is no indigenous burial site. It's a crime scene, and a recent one at that. Nora uncovers two dead bodies, one with a bullet hole in its skull, acid used to conceal the identities. Dead bodies mean this has become a case for the FBI, and Nora knows just the person to investigate – Special Agent Corrie Swanson.
As Corrie and Nora dig deeper into the mystery, they will uncover more questions than answers. And the truth they seek will be even stranger than the conspiracy it hides behind...

The thrillers of Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child stand head and shoulders above their rivals (Publishers Weekly).

They are coauthors of the famed Pendergast series, and their recent novels include The Scorpion's Tail, Crooked River, Old Bones, and Verses for the Dead. In addition to his novels, Preston writes about archaeology for The New Yorker and National Geographic magazines.

I love the combination of archaeology, forensics and detective work that blend together to exceed the sum of their parts.
