Mara Coyne returns in Terrell's second novel, now heading her own firm in the aftermath of The Chrysalis case. Coyne accepts an assignment from prominent collector Richard Tobias to verify the provenance of a map located at-and subsequently stolen from-an archaelogical dig site. Proof of the existence of what is purported to be the earliest world map ever made would change our understanding of the history of the age of exploration. Terrell again follows three narrative paths, following Coyne on the hunt for the map in the present day while tracing the mapmaker in early 15th-century China and the eventual voyage of the map with Vasco de Gama's navigator. An intriguing blend of suspense and historical fiction featuring a strong protagonist in Coyne; for popular fiction collections.
