Summary

Faye Longchamp is overjoyed to be paid to do archaeological work she would have done anyway - excavating a site that was once her family's. But that joy ends abruptly when intruders break into a dear friend's house and leave him dead among the scattered remains of Faye's artifacts.

There seems to be no motive at all for the vicious crime...unless the thieves were aware of the fabulous emerald he had been holding minutes before his death. But the open wall safe is untouched, and choice artifacts are still in their cases. Only Faye's field notes are missing.

Faye seeks out the story behind the mysterious emerald. How was her fieldwork connected to her friend's death? The key to all her questions must be buried in the field notes now held by the killers. Now it is only a matter of time before they come for Faye.

FINDINGS

Do not waste your money. Very slow and boring. Usually love suspense novels, there was no suspense here and genuinely was not interested in the ending. Sorry, but could find no redeeming features here.

You Go! Mary Anna Evans

I gobbled up your first book and really enjoyed it. I patiently waited for your next two books, then our local bookseller who sold books from local authors closed up and my life got busy. I was thrilled to find that Mary Anna Evan is continuing to write excellent novels about my part of the world with depth and an understanding of how the world really works. I love her novels and hope she keeps writing more. Now I have all of them!

Better and Better

I am so happy that I discovered this series. Each book gets better and better. I enjoyed the progression of the characters development. I enjoyed the mystery and the mixture of history and archeology. This series is very fresh and interesting.
