Book DescriptionTracker Charlie Johnson and Deputy Lora Whitney race against the clock searching for the common link between the mysterious bones, a suspicious airplane crash, and a reluctant sky-diver in order to prevent another victim from following in the footsteps of "The Bog Lady." "Any idea how long she's been down there?" "Really hard to tell. At least five years, not more than twenty." "Any idea about the cause of death?" "None of the remains give a hint. Best to put her back together and see where she leads." "Put her back together?" "Her face at least. She may not look like much now but wait until we get her makeup on. After that it's simply a matter of Who-done-it 101." "Explain."
