    Things start going wrong when Emma stumbles across the body of a dead man. Then a grave robber pulls a gun on her in front of a witness. While she is dealing with those two traumas, Pauline's house catches fire with the owner inside. Later it is discovered that arson occurred, leaving Emma vowing to find Pauline's killer and bring that person to justice.

    SITE UNSEEN is a fascinating academic mystery starring a very intense heroine who has a strong sense of morality and a fierce desire to see justice happen. Her relationship with her husband is given the same attention and devotion that she brings to her profession. Readers will definitely like Dana Cameron's first novel and will want to see more adventures starring the intrepid archeologist.
