No Stone Unturned by Andrea Kane is #8 in the Forensic Instinct Series. It is about Jewelry designer Fiona McKay who is supposed to have a meeting with her friend Rose Flaherty who is an antiquities leader and is helping Fiona research some tapestries that are in the McKay family.

Upon entering Rose's shop, she finds her friend dead on the floor. She is sure her friend did not die accidentally but was murdered.

Forensics Instincts is a team of dynamic personalities, an intuitive, a former Navy Seal, a behaviorist, and a computer/tech wizard among others. Fiona's brother Ryan is the computer/tech expert on the team and after Fiona's apartment is broken into she enlists the team to help her investigate. The case involves a set of tapestries that belong to the family.

There is an IRA killer that worked for the British doing terrorist activities and is wanted, plus he brought his skills as a killer to America. He is after a hoard of treasures that is buried somewhere and the clues are in the tapestries.

The Forensic Instincts team has to be one step ahead of the killer to get to and save the treasure that they are all after, plus to keep Fiona and her family safe.

This book, even though, it is the 8th in the series, is a stand-alone novel, believable characters and a plot that is exciting. A great Celtic mystery, which drew me to the book in the first place. This is not the first of the Forensic Instincts novels that I have read and it won't be my last. Andrea Kane is a great storyteller! You won't go wrong investing in this author! ( )

No Stone Unturned is a complex, plot-driven adventure with a unique investigative team.

This is the eighth Forensic Instincts novel, but only the second one I’ve read. Each works well as a stand-alone novel.

While we do get to know the individual characters as the story progresses, the focus is on the intricate plot. This story takes us from a jewelry designer and a local murder, to former IRA members, to a family’s Irish heritage and hidden treasure.

I really enjoy the team’s diverse and unorthodox investigative methods. They don’t play by the rules, but instead make up their own as they go along.

This is a fun read for anyone looking to escape into Irish culture and murder.

The Forensics Instincts' (FI) crew are back and this case is quite convoluted and touches home in more ways than one. It all begins when Ryan McKay's younger sister, Fiona, a budding jewelry designer, visits one of her favorite antiquities contacts for information and finds the elderly woman's murdered body instead. This is followed by Fiona's apartment being ransacked and her computer hacked. What could an antiques dealer and a jewelry designer possibly have in common? The more the FI crew investigates, the more they realize this may be tied to a McKay family heirloom. As more clues are uncovered, they begin to realize that everyone they're coming in contact with have secret pasts they want to keep hidden. Some tied to the IRA and events in the mid-1980s in Ireland and others tied to the McKay ancestors and their immigration from Ireland to the US in the 1920s. Is it possible that Ryan and Fiona's great-grandmother put clues into the tapestry she created all those years ago? Will they be able to piece together the clues before someone else dies, perhaps one of the McKays or a member of the FI team?

One of the things I enjoy about all of the Forensics Instincts books are the suspense and how well the team works together. They may seem to be a mishmash of disparate personalities and abilities, but they work well together and just seem to fit. The president of the business is Casey Woods, a millionaire who puts her money to work for good and fur-momma to Hero, the FI human-scent evidence bloodhound. Marc Deveraux tempers Casey's tempestuous nature and is often second in command. Marc is a former Navy SEAL as well as being a former FBI behavioral analyst. The team's security expert, Patrick Lynch, is another former FBI agent. Ryan is the team's computer expert, tech guru, and creator of their awesome AI teammate, Yoda. Claire Hedgleigh is Ryan's girlfriend and the team's psychic or claircognizant. Emma Stirling is the newest member of the investigative team and a reformed pickpocket. They definitely have diverse skill sets, but like I said before, it works. This time around, Claire uses her abilities to "detect" what she can by touching the McKay family tapestries. The subtle clues she's able to pickup, help direct the team, along with the little information they were able to glean from documentation received from Rose Flaherty, the murder victim. This story incorporates a lost treasure hunt, greed, intrigue, Irish history, Irish politics and nationalism, along with secret pasts. There are stories within stories and it was fascinating to see the layers uncovered and the secrets revealed. For those of you that have read any of the previous Forensics Instincts books, I encourage you to go and grab a copy of No Stone Unturned to read. If you haven't read any of the Forensics Instincts books in the past, you can start with No Stone Unturned (trust me on this one folks) and work your way backwards. There's enough backstory provided that you won't be lost. I enjoyed this adventure, especially the opportunity to get to meet Fiona McKay (btw, you can actually shop her jewelry line at fionamckayjewerly) and other members of the McKay family. I look forward to reading more in this series in the future.

Happy Reading y'all! (Please stay safe out there and follow all health guidelines and restrictions.)

This is the eighth book in this series. Each book can be read as a stand alone novel. Readers of mystery/suspense novels will enjoy this series. I have not read every book in this series but with the hand full of books that I have read, I have gotten to know the members of the Forensic Instincts team. It is not just mainly comprised of men but some women as well.

In fact, this book features a female member in Claire. She and Ryan worked well together. However, don't count Fiona out yet. She was tough too. There was a good storyline wrapped with a good amount of action and mystery to keep the flow of the story going without slowing down. I can't wait to read the next book in this series. ( )
