Venturing into this raw, treacherous, but breathtakingly beautiful wilderness to confirm the discovery, Preston and the team battled torrential rains, quickmud, disease-carrying insects, jaguars, and deadly snakes. But it wasn't until they returned that tragedy struck: Preston and others found they had contracted in the ruins a horrifying, sometimes lethal-and incurable-disease. Thereafter it was shunned as a cursed place, forbidden, visiting death on those who dared enter. They succeeded in locating two large sites, apparently built by the civilization that once inhabited the Mosquiteria region.
A return trip took place in to explore the sites on foot, an experience that was easier said than done but resulted in remarkable archaeological finds. Feb 22, , am.

My Thoughts: You won't get very far into the book before you know that you have a winner in your hands and you might as well prepare for late, late nights of reading. Well we all have to make sacrifices you know: This author is a master at creating psychologically damaged characters Narrated from Lana's perspective By her own descriptions of events it soon becomes clear that she can give "mentally unstable" a completely new meaning Many of the other characters fall into the "unstable" category.
Luke is eleven years old and is way beyond his age with the knowledge he would be expected to have If two aren't enough for you we have Professor Langdon Hewes. He comes across at first as kind and caring but before long the hairs on the back of your neck let you know that all is not as it seems. Even the missing girl is manipulative and abrasive. It's a book that will remain with you long after the last page is read and these psychopaths are once again safely enclosed between the covers of the book.

My Thoughts: I have always enjoyed novels by this author and found them easy reading with interesting themes. This one somehow just didn't live up to the standards of the others. I don't know if it was the topic of human slavery and the Russian mob or if it was the sleazy actions by the guests at the bachelor party So I would have to say the book was just "okay".
I didn't hate the book. It had promise from the description Edited: Feb 25, , pm.
Her remains are carefully arranged in what seems to have been a macabre ritual. For newly appointed Edinburgh Detective Inspector Tony McLean, this baffling cold case ought to be a low priority, but he is haunted by the young victim and her grisly death. Meanwhile, the city is horrified by a series of bloody killings—deaths for which there appears to be neither rhyme nor reason, and which leave Edinburgh's police at a loss.
McLean is convinced that these deaths are somehow connected to the terrible ceremonial killing of the girl, all those years ago. It is an irrational theory.

And one that will lead McLean closer to the heart of a terrifying and ancient evil My Thoughts: This story of crime and mystery, set in Edinburgh, reminds us that the city has some dark deeds in its past. The story moves very quickly for the most part and the bodies keep piling up, Detective Inspector McLean meets with resistance from some team members, however the scenes in the police station are well done, and the variety of characters throughout are well portrayed.
Of course Oswald throws in one for us to hate. There is a hint Over all a great first book and I look forward to the second one. Feb 26, , pm. But though a boy has confessed to the horrific crime, evidence shows he may not be guilty. Officer Rainie Conner, leading her first homicide investigation, stands at the center of the controversy. It's hitting too close to home, bringing back her worst nightmares, threatening to expose her secret sins. But with the boy's life at stake, she won't let anything stop her from finding the real killer.
Because out there in the shadows a man watches her and plots his next move. He knows her secrets. He kills for sport. He's already brought death to Bakersville and forever shattered the community. But what he has really come for is Rainie -- and he won't leave until he has destroyed her. My Thoughts: It's almost like history repeating itself for Raine as she struggles to come to gripes and believe that 11 year old Daniel O'Grady shot n d killed a teacher and two young classmates.
Raine herself has nightmares about being accused of killing her own mother fourteen years ago. Supervisory Special Agent Pierce Quincy from the FBI enters the turmoil to study child killers and to offer assistance to a small police force that up to now the largest crime they have investigated is a traffic accident. The two start out cautiously but eventually find they work well as a team.

As anyone can guess that has read books of this type I have a measure of hope for this series. I'm not a big fan of romance books and usually skip them all together but I will wait to pass any real judgment on the series. Perhaps it will turn out to be as good as Gardner's D.
