RUMBLES OF THE PAST...

On an abandoned Santa Fe ranch a young archaeologist finds a letter written sixteen years ago yet, mysteriously, mailed only recently. In it her father, long believed dead, hints at a lost city of gold that will make him famous — and rich. Now Nora Kelly is leading an expedition into a harsh, remote corner of Utah's canyon country. Searching for her father and his discovery, Nora begins to unravel one of archaeology's greatest mysteries...

FLASHES OF DEATH...

A thousand years ago a thriving civilization suddenly and mysteriously vanished. For Nora Kelly and her strife-ridden team of explorers, the answer is at their fingertips. Then the terror explodes...

Review:

"Spellbinding as ever." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"The adventure is marginally higher than the suspense in Preston and Child's sturdy new tale....Fans of the authors' similarly inspired, and similarly metronomic, scientific textbooks-cum-thrillers should find this one much to their taste." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"A story filled with excitement, a sense of place, and personable characters, delivered as a quick-paced race against evil and the forces of nature." Library Journal

Review:

"Chilling — redefines 'page-turner.'" Denver Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"Grounded in science but flirting with the supernatural....A highly readable tale of adventure and long-ago crimes." Dallas Morning News

Review:

"Brimming with mystery, wonder, and terror — a headlong narrative that will keep you turning pages into the wee hours." F. Paul Wilson, author of Legacies

This is definitely one of the best non-Pendergast novels by these authors! It deals with archaeology and Anasazi ruins, and brings Nora Kelly and Bill Smithback together for the first time. Very suspenseful (except of course we know that neither Nora nor Bill can get killed!) and well-plotted. Even when you know what's bound to happen, you still can't turn the pages fast enough. A good read!
