“When archaeologist Faye Longchamp excavates a site in her own back yard, she discovers a large emerald. Her surprise and excitement are quickly replaced by grief and anger when and she her friends are threatened by those who will let no one get in the way of their search for an even bigger prize.”
— Linda Walonen, Bay Books, San Ramon, CA

Description


Faye Longchamp is overjoyed to be paid to do archaeological work she would have done anyway - excavating a site that was once her family's. That joy ends abruptly when intruders break into a dear friend's house and leave him dead among the scattered remains of Faye's artifacts. But the open wall safe is untouched, and choice artifacts are left in their cases.
There seems to be no motive at all for the vicious crime - unless the thieves were aware of the fabulous emerald he had been holding minutes before his death. But Faye had only uncovered it that very evening, and she had told no one.
When his widow asks Faye to organize the relics left broken on the floor, Faye realizes that something is actually missing - not an emerald nor a valuable painting, but her field notes.
Faye seeks out the story behind the mysterious emerald. How was her fieldwork connected to her friend's death? The key to all her questions must be buried in the field notes now held by the killers. Now, it is only a matter of time before they come for Faye. Findings is the fourth book in the Faye Longchampe series.

*STARRED REVIEW* “Evans always incorporates detailed research that adds depth and authenticity to her mysteries, and she beautifully conjurs up the Micco County, FL, setting. This is a series that deserves more attention than it garners.” –Library Journal of Findings     “Civil War and slave history, Confederate reenactors, and the geography of the Florida coast are the themes Evans explores here, accented with the minutiae of archaeological research…Fascinating subject matter.” –Booklist of Findings     “Faye's capable fourth (Effigies, 2007, etc.) is a charming mixture of history, mystery and romance.” –Kirkus Reviews of Findings     “As the story settles into a comfortable pace that allows the reader to savor the characters, Faye and her Creek buddy, Joe Wolf Mantooth, seek to bring their friends' killer to justice. In the end, love prevails, without being either sappy or sexual.” –Publishers Weekly of Findings
