Publisher Comments:

Republican kingmaker Richard Tobias has hired attorney Mara Coyne, he says, because of her skill in recovering stolen art, but Mara senses that he is not telling her everything. Tobias reveals that a centuries-old map was stolen from an archaeological dig he is sponsoring in China, and he wants her to get it back. But as Mara begins her investigation, she uncovers the shocking truth: The map is more valuable than anyone has even imagined, and her clients motives are more sinister than she suspected.

From Hong Kong to the Italian countryside, from Lisbon to the remote reaches of Communist China, and literally around the world on the ships of fifteenth-century explorers, Heather Terrell takes readers on an adventure of epic proportions.

This creative historical mystery focuses on the discovery of a history-changing Chinese map of the oceans. Heather Terrell combines a current struggle over the map with stories of the Chinese map maker and a Portuguese navigator. And there's even some international intrigue woven in. I sped through the book, thoroughly entertained, and learned some history at the same time.
