Spoils of the Dead
Alaskan State Trooper Liam Campbell investigates the murder of a young archaeologist. Could the killing be connected to something the archaeologist had uncovered at their dig site?
‘Outstanding … Rich in details of Alaskan life, history, and archaeology, this fast-paced mystery builds to a satisfying conclusion. Fans will hope they won’t have to wait another eight years for Liam’s next outing’ Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
IT’S A NEW START FOR ALASKA STATE TROOPER LIAM CAMPBELL – BUT THE SAME OLD PROBLEMS.
It’s Labor Day in Blewestown, Alaska, and it seems most of the town’s thirty-five hundred residents have turned out to celebrate. Not Liam Campbell, though.
He’s been in town for about a week when an archaeologist invites Liam out to his dig site. He’s on the verge of a momentous discovery, one he says will be well worth the State Trooper’s time.
Two days later, the archaeologist is dead, and Liam Campbell is about to learn that he’s traded one troubled bush town for another.
