Publisher Description

The #1 NYT bestselling authors Preston & Child bring the true story of the ill-fated Donner Party to new life in this thrilling novel of archaeology, history, murder, and suspense.
Nora Kelly, a young curator at the Santa Fe Institute of Archaeology, is approached by historian Clive Benton with a once-in-a-lifetime proposal: to lead a team in search of the so-called "Lost Camp" of the tragic Donner Party. This was a group of pioneers who earned a terrible place in American history when they became snow-bound in the California mountains in 1847, their fate unknown until the first skeletonized survivors stumbled out of the wilderness, raving about starvation, murder-and cannibalism.

Benton tells Kelly he has stumbled upon an amazing find: the long-sought diary of one of the victims, which has an enigmatic description of the Lost Camp. Nora agrees to lead an expedition to locate and excavate it-to reveal its long-buried secrets.

Once in the mountains, however, they learn that discovering the camp is only the first step in a mounting journey of fear. For as they uncover old bones, they expose the real truth of what happened, one that is far more shocking and bizarre than mere cannibalism. And when those ancient horrors lead to present-day violence on a grand scale, rookie FBI agent Corrie Swanson is assigned the case...only to find that her first investigation might very well be her last.

Fun

Fun read.

Old Bones is solid, looking forward to Scorpion

This wasn’t the greatest book in the world but it was a solid ride. It was gripping enough to keep you very much involved. There were many mysteries happening and the resolution was, in my opinion, solid. Again, not a 5-star experience for me, but a 4. If the rating scale was letter-based I would grade it a B+ ... looking forward to Book 2 which is now available....

One year plan ,

Chilling

Great story premise with lots of action and intrigue. Couldn’t stop reading once I started. Definitely worth it.
