*This is a two book series* (All of your answers won’t be answered in book 1)


Death had touched anthropologist Jade Hansen in Haiti once before, costing her an unborn child and perhaps her very sanity. 

A year later, determined to face her own issues, she returns to Haiti with a mortuary team to recover the bodies of an American family from a mass grave. 

Visiting his brother after the quake, independent contractor Dane Carter puts his life on hold to help the sleepy town of Jacmel rebuild. But he finds it hard to like his brother’s pregnant wife or her family. He wants to go home, until he meets Jade – and realizes what’s missing in his own life. 
When the mortuary team begins work, it’s as if malevolence has been released from the earth. Instead of laying her ghosts to rest, Jade finds herself confronting death and terror again.

    Did you knowthat that when you navigate to your series “By Death ” the links to books 1 and 2 are backwards? The link for book 1 takes yoou to 2 and visa versa. By the way I liked 1 very much and was looking for the link to 2 when I found that out. I am going to buy book 2 now.
