BEST NEW FICTION Finalist!

Crack investigator Claire Caswell had seen a lot of snaky dealings behind the scenes of environmental clean-up projects, but she never expected to find a murder victim at the bottom of a suspicious dig site. When a mysterious ancient relic surfaces and her investigation turns up an unexpected relative, and Nazi connections, she finds herself torn between mysteries in both the present and the past.

Working side by side with her love interest -- Gaston Lombard, a lead Miami-Dade State Attorney -- to solve the seemingly impossible homicide, tensions build and teeter.

Someone does not want Claire Caswell on the case, but why?

Spanning three continents and seven decades, The Find, with its vivid settings and haunting characters, weaves a chilling tale of murder, greed, and suspense that will seize your imagination and take it for an unforgettable ride.

Descripción de la librería

GAMBIT'S Collectibles Hi, my wife and I recently founded GAMBIT'S Collectibles on line business. We decided to name the business after one of our family members. We first met Gambit at an -Adopt a pet- show held by a pet store as a community services event. We were actually looking for a small dog, a lap dog if you will for her. As we looked at the puppies and older dogs we had a difficult time deciding. Gambit was sitting quietly in the corner as the other puppies yipped and barked as all the strangers coming by to look at them. I don't know if you believe in an emotional bond but there was definitely an immediate connection between Gambit and I. At first I just wanted to pick him up and take a closer look. When I did Gambit did something I will never forget. He held on to my arm with his paws wrapped around -clinging- to me. This connection created a strong bond between us. My wife tells people that I hogged the puppy and wandered off into a corner of the pet store with him so no one else could have a chance to pick him. I have to admit it is true. However, because we came for a different breed of dog we decided to wait until more dogs were brought to the event. So we went to lunch with plans to come back in an hour or so. I told myself that the puppy I liked so much would be long gone by then. Someone would pick him for sure. Who could resist? So with some trepidation I left it up to fate. Well, we ate our lunch and came back to the event in time to see the new dogs arriving at the pet store. We looked them over and considered a couple but I could not get Gambit out of my mind. So, I went to see if he was still in the pen they had for the puppies. Amazingly he was still there. I picked him up and we have been faithful friends every since. Our family loves Gambit and I am thankful for his unconditional love for our family every day. So, when we decided to create an on line business we needed a CEO and Gambit was elected. His bark is worse than his bite! Some of the proceeds from our sales will go the local animal shelter here in Colorado to give others a chance to adopt a pet and maybe they will be as lucky as we were. We are proud contributors to the local Humane Society and the business makes monthly contributions via the PAWS system.
