FindingseBook - 2011
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. 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. Yet the open wall safe is untouched, and choice artifacts are left in their cases. There seems to be no motive at all for the vicious crime, unless the thieves were aware of the fabulous emerald the victim had been holding minutes before his death. How could they have known it existed? Faye had only uncovered it that very evening, and she'd told no one. When the victim's widow asks Faye to organize the relics left broken on the floor, Faye realizes that something is actually missing, not an emerald nor a valuable painting, but her field notes. 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 notebooks now held by the killers, all signed in Faye's handwriting. Now, it is only a matter of time before they come for her.
