by Suzanne Arruda

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Historical

RT Rating

Jade del Cameron is a heroine to admire. A cross between Indiana Jones and Kinsey Millhone, she's feisty, smart and likable -- an adventuress with a sense of humor. Her latest tale is a classy, smart, historical escapade across the desert in search of a murderer and a sacred amulet.

Photographer and writer
Jade del Cameron joins her mother, Inez, in the ancient city of Tangiers
for a short vacation with the hopes
of mending their turbulent relationship. It's the 1920s, and Inez wants her
independent daughter to find a suitable husband. Before Jade knows it, her mother is kidnapped, and the authorities think Jade may be responsible
for the murder of a local guide found
in the city's underground tunnels.

While looking for her mother,
Jade partners up with a mysterious Berber man named Bachir who
offers to help her find her mother
if she'll help him recover an ancient sacred amulet belonging to his village. Jade's search for her mother, the amulet and the real murderer takes
her across the desert, through the mountains and into the Kasbah
and the slave markets of Marrakech. (Obsidian, Jan., 352 pp., $23.95)
