In Grand Rincons, Utah, sisters Rheada and Tilly Samuels helped their father find Anasazi artifacts. Their father convinced Rheada that they were just protecting the treasures, but in fact, he was selling them. When he is murdered, Rheada takes charge of the family pottery business so she can raise Tilly.
Eleven years later, Rheada wants to go legit. She begins a tour business guiding customers into the canyons that were once home for the Anasazi and Aztecs. On the other hand, Tilly, who always was the more adventuresome, continues in the old family line of work over Rheada's objections.
Bureau of Land Management agent Kee Blackburn goes undercover trying to capture the legendary thief RAVEN. Although he has official sanction, this case is personal as he blames RAVEN for the disappearance and probable death of his younger sister. He thinks Rheada is the elusive thief. Attaining a job as Rheada's tour driver, Kee never expected to fall in love with his prime suspect, nor she with her new employee. However, the past and the present leave little room for a future together.
The picaresque tour of the Native American ruins make for a wonderful tale. Paired with stirring characters, readers gain a fantastic blending of Native American mythos with a contemporary romantic suspense. The story line compels the audience to read it in one sitting. Kee and Rheada share more then just love. They are a caring, courageous, and capable couple, but seemingly star-crossed. The secondary cast adds depth to a breathless panorama that will send fans seeking more novels by Laura Baker.
