Description

One look at the centuries-old document she receives from a mysterious stranger is all it takes to plunge Lola Sanchez--a brilliant bibliophile and owner of the Red Lion bookshop--into the adventure of an already adventurous lifetime. The ancient writings tell of a stolen fortune in Montezuma's gold--and of the thief's transformation from conquistatore to alchemist . . . to werewolf.

Riches beyond imagining possibly await the stalwart globe-trotter who can solve the intricate riddles hidden in the artifact's crumbling pages. But a deadly curse is buried there as well. On a dangerous quest through the dark shadows of history, Lola and her dashing companion, Eric, will have to unravel the twisted strands of her own family's fantastical past--and stay a step ahead of the villainous treasure hunters who would eagerly kill for the secrets she possesses and the Aztec gold she seeks.

Review quote

"A romp like this, of course, is only as good as its characters and Murray draws ehavily on the lively cast she introduced in The Queen Jade...Murray does a pretty nifty job of pulling it all together at the end...."--Los Angeles Times
