Recent Publications: Second Novel from the Schiffers

Riecker Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Anthropology Michael Brian Schiffer and Annette Schiffer are the proud authors of another new novel in their Oak Grove Chronicles mystery series. Holy Smoke! continues the sleuthing adventures of sheriff's detective Alan Bluestein and forensic archaeologist Laura Mancini. In this book they investigate an arson fire and a 30-year-old murder as their personal relationship reaches a new level. As in Book 1 (A Buzz About Campus), the story is a warmhearted blend of serious and silly. Learn more about the series at or order the book on Amazon. (Anthro News date: 3/1/2019)
