Description

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. There seems to be no motive at all for the vicious crimeunless 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 left in their cases. The only thing missing is Faye's 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 field notes now held by the killers. Now, it is only a matter of time before they come for Faye.

Professional reviews

"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"
