When PI Quint Mitchell volunteered to help with an archaeological survey in St. Augustine, he didn't count on digging up a murder victim. In the nation's oldest city, Mitchell discovers links to ancient sins, comes face to face with his own past, and unleashes powerful forces that will do anything to keep their secrets--even if it means taking his life.
In this award-winning debut mystery, author Parker Francis taps into an undercurrent of violence hidden behind the sleepy facade of the historic town. When Mitchell's friend, the city archaeologist, is charged with a brutal murder, he must find the true killer while fighting inner demons and the corrosive residue of racial violence dating back to the Civil Rights Movement. As he learns, St. Augustine was birthed in blood--Matanzas means "place of slaughter" in Spanish--and violence is never far from the surface.

- k pelham
This was a really good book.The story was tight,interesting and well thought out.The main character,a P.I. volunteering at an archeological site digs up a fresh corpse.This story is full of mystery and suspense w/just enough romance tossed in.
MIke Dennis was a wonderful narrator.His straight forward,business only rendition of Quint was great.
I was gifted this book for an honest review.
