He watched her as she
made her way across the crowded room, mesmerized by her flaming red hair.
She was the one who would end the deadly curse of the lethal dagger -
she would be a worthy sacrifice . . .
Anna Lundgren had worked
years to create the stunning "Mysteries of the Maya" exhibit.
The main prized attraction was the "Pocal Dagger"; a priceless
jade knife that held a curse of death to any who was brave enough to hold
it. When she finds a replica of the knife in her desk drawer, she shrugs
it off as a prank: little did she know the next day the replica would
be replaced with the real exhibit. Overnight she finds herself entwined
in a masterminded crime. Determined to prove her innocence, she turns
to the only person who believes her - Detective Gil Garcia. Will he be
able to unravel the mystery that surrounds the disappearance?
Homicide Detective Gil
Garcia responded to what looked to be a normal drug overdose. Further
investigation led him to beautiful museum Curator, Anna Lundgren. The
evidence of the missing dagger suggests Anna was guilty of the theft.
Unfortunately, his instincts told him otherwise. Somehow he had to piece
together the puzzling pieces - a missing priceless dagger, a murdered
security guard, and a beautiful woman. Will he be able to solve the clues
before he has another murder to add to the evidence?
Rachel Lee expertly
lets readers see through the eyes of a mastermind criminal. This added
bonus enhances the high intensity that radiates through this exciting
novel. This type of novel is new to this reviewer, but I could feel the
emotions Ms. Lee was trying to capture. This one left goose bumps by the
time I came to the dramatic conclusion.
