"A fascinating look at contemporary archaeology but also a twisted story of greed and its effects." —Dallas Morning News

Faye Longchamp, back in school to pursue her dream of becoming an archaeologist, has been asked to run a project for which she is barely qualified, under the direction of a man who doesn't seem to like her much. Her assignment: to uncover the origins of a mysterious ethnic group. The Sujosa have lived in Alabama's most remote hills for centuries and have shown impressive immunity to many diseases…including AIDS.

Late one night, Faye awakes to find the house in flames. She saves herself and one of her housemates. But her friend Carmen, the project historian, never had a chance. Within days, an 18-year-old boy jumps from a cell phone tower that, when completed, would connect the outside world to the Sujosa community. Are these events somehow related?

Praise For…

"An intriguing, multi-layered tale. Not only was I completely stumped by the mystery, I was enchanted by the characters Evans created with such respect." — Claire Matturro, author of Wildcat Wine

"...the remote setting engenders an eerie sense of isolation and otherness that gives the story an extra dimension. Recommend this steadily improving series to female-sleuth fans or those who enjoy archaeology-based thrillers like Beverly Connor's Lindsay Chamberlain novels." — Booklist

"Evans delivers a convincing read with life-size, unique characters, not the least of whom is Faye's Indian sidekick, Joe. The archaeological adventures are somewhat reminiscent of Tony Hillerman's 'Jim Chee' mysteries. While the story is complex, Relics will engage the imagination of readers attracted to unearthing the secrets of lost cultures." — School Library Journal

"A fascinating look at contemporary archaeology but also a twisted story of greed and its effects." — Dallas Morning News
