Overview

Faye Longchamp is once again in Florida, at Joyeuse, the family plantation she labors so lovingly to restore. She’s doing archaeological work for pay, excavating a site once owned by her family. Her joy abruptly ends when thieves break into the home of her beloved mentor Douglass Everett and kill him while inexplicably ignoring not just the impressive display of artifacts in his mansion, but its valuable art work. All that’s missing are Faye’s field notes.
But the thieves left, on Douglass’ body, a magnificent emerald; a gem Faye had just unearthed and brought to him that fateful evening. Surely this fabulous jewel has a romantic history. Then another murder quickly furnishes a clue that only Faye is likely to interpret. It launches her on a treasure hunt connected to Marie Antoinette and to the history of the Confederacy.
Faye’s research rubs a number of people wrong, including some Civil War souvenir seekers. And her quest to solve the murders forces Faye to look hard at the people close to her, friends and lovers, in a journey paralleled by that of a Civil War-era neighbor to Joyeuse.
The killers have shown they will stop at nothing to get the information in Faye’s notes. It’s only a matter of time before they come for Faye.

Editorial Reviews

starred review - Library Journal
Evans always incorporates detailed research that adds depth and authenticity to her mysteries, and she beautifully conjurs up the Micco County, FL, setting. This is a series that deserves more attention than it garners." --Library Journal, starred review
Book list
"Civil War and slave history, Confederate reenactors, and the geography of the Florida coast are the themes Evans explores here, accented with the minutiae of archaeological research...Fascinating subject matter." --Booklist
Kirkus Reviews
"Faye's capable fourth (Effigies, 2007, etc.) is a charming mixture of history, mystery and romance." --Kirkus Reviews
Publishers Weekly
"As the story settles into a comfortable pace that allows the reader to savor the characters, Faye and her Creek buddy, Joe Wolf Mantooth, seek to bring their friends' killer to justice. In the end, love prevails, without being either sappy or sexual.” --Publishers Weekly
