Publisher's Summary

When a sudden rainstorm disrupts an archeological dig at a remote Mayan site, site supervisor Deborah Miller makes an astonishing discovery: a collection of rubies so precious that generations of men have died - and killed - to possess them. Some believe the jewels harbor occult power; others believe they are the key to the arms race; still others see merely their potential for profit. But Deborah doesn’t want power or money - she only wants the truth.
And so she sets out to trace the stones’ complex history across four centuries and two continents, from Mexico to northern England, where the rubies once played a harrowing role in the Lancashire witch trials of 1612. But she is not the only one obsessed with the jewels; close on her heels is a notorious arms dealer who will stop at nothing, not even murder, to claim the prize for himself.

Archaelogical Thriller

The story starts out on an archaeological dig in the Yucatan. A new discovery is made and soon the problems start. Artifacts are stolen, people are killed. Deborah wants to learn more about what was found in the tomb so she follows the trail from Yucatan, to England, back to Mexico. There's plots and subplots that come together at the end. You learn about different places in both Mexico and England that were quite interesting.

The narrator was pretty good, although I was thinking Nick was English but at least half the time it sounded like she gave him a Scottish accent.
