Scattered Graves (Diane Fallon) by Beverly Connor

There's a lot going on in this novel, almost too much it seems at times. Still Beverly Connor manages to keep your attention enough to follow the plot.
Diane Fallon, leading lady of the Rosewood forensics lab has to deal with a new mayor and a coup on her lab. There's also a body to identify and some murders to solve, a big conspiracy and some thrilling attempts to kill off Diane.
Probably a bit less gruesome than Cornwell, Beverly tells a good crime story with an enjoyable, realistic but powerful forensic investigator. It was also nice to read a thriller without a serial killer for once. It's a shame the ending takes us a bit into the world of SF but maybe there's more possible with computers these days than I thought.
