In the fifth book in the Charles Bloom Murder Mystery series....
Prehistoric pots worth millions hidden on a high cliff in Wupatki National Monument hold vital clues to prehistoric agriculture and migrations - and to Santa Fe art dealer Charles Bloom's own future. To ensure his family's safety, Bloom must uncover the meaning of a pot-hunter's plunder, expose an unethical international gallery owner, and solve a 1,000-year-old mystery that centers on his Canyon Road art gallery.
Unbeknownst to Bloom, Juan de Oñate's Santa Fe governorship 400 years earlier has seemingly unstoppable life-and-death implications for his wife, Navajo weaver Rachael Yellowhorse. For all to survive, Bloom and Lieutenant Billy Poh of the Santa Fe Police Department must come to grips with a historical quagmire and stop the cascade of atrocities from landing directly on Bloom's front porch.
