Hopi Indians--Antiquities--Fiction; Archaeological thefts--Fiction; New Mexico--Fiction
Even though she was once in love with Jayce McDermott, FBI agent Meredith McKay thought she would never see him again. Now their less-than-happy reunion is taking place in a small, Arizona jailhouse where the archaeologist stands accused of murder. Unfortunately, Meredith’s list of suspects is as short as the time Jayce may have to live.
Hidden beneath the red clay desert lie the answers to the investigation—in an ancient Hopi ceremonial kiva. As Meredith and Jayce dig for clues, they also unearth the love they have for each other—but Meredith soon realizes she needs more than even Jayce’s love to free her from the past. As the pair edges closer to the facts, one man is prepared to sacrifice Jayce to protect his profitable scheme. Can Meredith learn the truth in time to save the man she loves? [publisher's blurb]
