Can you escape the wrath of the Spirits?
Sandy Jacobs and Ben Rush are back on the trail of another mystery. The head archaeologist in charge of excavating an important Anasazi ruin on Pueblo land turns up dead. The San Sebastian people, long opposed to the dig because of its potential to disturb a sacred site, believe the spirits were behind this murder. They want the excavation immediately shut down and sealed off.
To make matters worse, someone is taking soil samples near the site and their purpose is unclear. Are they working in conjunction with the Pueblo government to protect the land and its people, or do they have another, more heinous, intent? And does this have anything to do with the murder?
Sandy and Ben turn to the police for answers to these questions, but they are of little help and might be protecting the authorities. Unable to sit by and do nothing, Sandy is again thrust into the role of detective, but without Ben’s backing. She’s determined to discover who stands to benefit from the archaeologist’s death, even though Ben isn’t so certain it’s a who, but rather a what. Cultural differences they’d put to rest arise anew and marital conflicts surface to complicate an already complex situation.
Are the ancestors truly opposed to the excavation and willing to wreak havoc? Will Sandy be able to discover the person…or spirit…behind the crime before it is too late? And, in the midst of all the confusion and contention, will whoever is responsible for the crime strike again?
