The 8th Doll by Chris Rakunas

When the body of geologist Charlie Landry is found beheaded beside the cenote at Dzibilchaltun, Skips Kane does the last thing he wants to do — he calls his old friend Professor Alex Guidry to help solve the murder. It’s not that Skips and Alex have had a falling out, but rather that their last adventure together resulted in the death of Alex’s wife. The team begins to look for anything that might help explain the geologist’s murder, but their only clue turns out to be a small doll with the number “8” written in Charlie’s own blood on the front. Is it a reference to the famed Temple of the Seven Dolls in Dzibilchaltun, or does it have to do with the sighting of Ah Pukuh, the Mayan god of death, and the Mayan 2012 apocalyptic prophecy? The mystery of the 8th doll will take Kane and Guidry down the winding paths of the Yucatan where they will discover the answer to the age old question: what will happen when the Mayan calendar ends?
