Nancy Duncan and her partner, Bobbi O'Brien, are on vacation in Southern
Utah, perusing the giant structures of red clay and white slick rock. In the Arches National Monument, Nancy uncovers a partially buried broken chain attached to a light blue stone. It is encased by barely readable engraving and appears to be Hebrew or Arabic. Friends, Rakki Morari and Shalom Levi help Nancy and Bobbi pursue the mystery of the stone as it leads them to historical sites, Anasazi tribal members, and connections to new and old world mythologies and practices.
Mystery at the Escalantes
Just when Nancy and Bobbi are unwinding from their last adventure, they find a recently slain body of a young girl and some bones that date back over fifty years. After realizing a murder has been committed, they call on Tim O'Brien, Bobbi's uncle and retired police officer, for protection. Coroner Quinn harbors the women and their friends, Rakki and Shalom. Taken back in time, the travels of Jessie and Josh Browning are interspersed throughout the reading, and Rakki and Shalom have a baby.
