After a few harrowing months of stumbling through catacombs beneath a New Orleans cemetery, evading alligators at Bayou Teche, and dodging a band of fanatics searching for a crystal skull and torching rap clubs, Tony Boudreaux figures he deserves a rest. So when a San Antonio client offers a ten thousand dollar retainer to find a priceless map hidden in his deceased father’s den, Tony takes the job. He enjoys the ambience of the city and the exotic venue of the River Walk.
To his dismay, the simple task of finding a hidden map explodes into a series of attempts on his life and two murders with over a half dozen suspects, all of whom stood to gain from the map rumored to have been ancient even in the time of Alexander the Great.

About the Author
Kent Conwell grew up in the Texas Panhandle in the town of Wheeler, population 848. His love of the West came naturally, for his grandfather ran away from his Tennessee home when he was fourteen to bullwhack his way to the Panhandle. There he met his future wife, who had traveled from Illinois to Texas in a covered wagon. After moving to Fort Worth, where he was more at home in the stockyards than at school, Kent earned a B.S. and began teaching. Later, he moved to Port Neches, where he acquired a M.Ed. and a Ph.D. His love for writing about the West has never waned, because it was the one period unique to American history. He has won short story, screenplay, mystery, and Western fiction awards.
