"Cassandra Campbell does a fine job with this fourth installment in Evans's well-received mystery series featuring Faye Longchamp, a Florida archaeologist and amateur sleuth. In this book Faye's field notes about a mysterious emerald are stolen, and her mentor is murdered. Her efforts to solve the crime take her into Civil War research and into danger. Campbell voices diverse characters--from old black men and Southern white sheriffs to Faye's Native American boyfriend. Her take on Faye, biracial, young, and well educated, is imaginative, giving her a crisp tone in the presence of academics and a hint of rhythm when she's among black Baptists. Some of the book's detail could have moved faster with more variation in Faye's narrative voice; otherwise, this is excellent entertainment. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
