Faye Longchamp’s new archaeological firm has landed a project in St. Augustine, Florida. In four centuries, America’s oldest city has accumulated skeletons that should probably stay buried. Within a day of Faye’s arrival, a woman disappears, leaving behind blood, priceless artifacts, and a note asking for Faye’s help.
The detective hires Faye to find the artifacts’ origin, but the ghosts of the Ancient City are demanding masters, and Faye is also driven to uncover their secrets - until it becomes clear that what they seek is Faye herself. And her child.
Mary Anna Evans, award-winning author of the six Faye Longchamp mysteries, has degrees in physics and engineering, but her heart is in the past. Her books have found an unexpected home in schools, and when she’s not writing novels, she works with teachers to develop ways to use popular fiction to teach math, science, and history to kids.
