Inhaltsangabe: The Summoning God is more than a superb murder mystery, it is a psych- ological thriller with blockbuster action, romance and suspense, and best of all a dynamic plot that will have you holding your breath waiting for the nest step down the dark labyrinth of their serial murderers mind. When world-renowned Canadian Physical Anthropologist, Dr. Maureen Cole, is called to the United States to analyze burials found in an ancient subterranean ceremonial chamber, she is stunned to discover the burned bodies of thirty-three children and two adults. The children were burned in the flesh, meaning they were alive when the fire started, but was the fire an accident or deliberately set? The scattered, mutilated remains of the adults give Maureen her first clue. In order to solve the mystery she must work with American archaeologist William Dusty Stewart. Theyve worked on two archaeological projects in the past and get along like a mongoose and a cobra. Now they must work together to discover the dark and terrible secret of an ancient people. The Gears seamlessly weave together modern archaeology and ancient history. Like all of their books, The Summoning God is based on real archaeological sitessites that tell a terrifying story of North America eight hundred years ago. Breathtaking descriptions evoke the harsh beauty of the desert, while the lucid, erudite historical perspectives are informed by the authors own extensive archeological experience.
Inhaltsangabe: The second in the Anasazi Mysteries series, THE SUMMONING GOD follows THE VISITANT in which the archaeologist-authors introduced readers to the Anasazi, a group of thirteenth-century Native Americans. In this sequel, Dusty Stewart and Maureen Cole sift through an ancient Anasazi kiva, trying to understand the circumstances that led to the presence of thirty-three charred children's bodies in the ceremonial chamber. As the story shifts between past and present, we also see the members of the pueblo as they move toward the terrible destruction being so carefully unearthed by Stewart and Cole. With an artful blend of mystery, history, and archeology, this fine story draws us in with vivid characters whose lives seamlessly weave into ours with binding threads.
"Combining archeology, history, and mystery, this is a book bound to appeal to anyone looking for a good story to spend a few days with." (Amazon.com)
