Overview

Harley-riding PI, Rick Sage, follows his heart into darkness once again when he meets up with ten-year-old Pedro, a Mexican-American kid lost on the streets of Tijuana. Pedro hires Rick, with the two dollars and thirty-five cents he has left in his pocket, to find the gang of antiquities thieves who murdered his parents. Shadowed by a jaguar spirit Rick begins to believe is real, his promise to help the boy takes them on a trail leading from Tijuana to the Copper Canyon, then on to Mexico's Mayan ruins at Palenque, and down a jungle border river into Guatemala. Along the way, Rick and Pedro join up with a beautiful but mysterious redheaded nun, and a magical, fleet-footed Tarahumara shaman. Haunted by his own tragic childhood, Rick is determined to fulfill his promise to Pedro to find the murderers and recover the Jade Death Mask of the Jaguar Cult, as they are drawn deeper and deeper into a dark plot lit only by the beacons of a jaguar's eyes.

Editorial Reviews

Vicky Duby
This is a refreshing and 'can't put down' novel that I haven't been able to read or find in a very long time. You will love the character Rick Sage, as a modern day PI and a lost soul of sorts all in one. It also has other great characters such as Sister Denise, who you will love and admire immediately and then suspect of other doings all at the same time, then she shines through. The local FederÃles are on the case also, and who to trust is like a roller coaster ride.
Ann DellaCamera
Murdoch Hughes writes a fast paced, interesting Indiana Jones type mystery.

This book 'Death Mask of the Jaguar' is a unique combination of humor and suspense! I could not put it down and enjoyed it immensely. It is just as enjoyable as the first sequel 'Murder In LaPaz' and the writers style always keeps you guessing. I would recommend this book to everyone who likes to read mysteries!
