This one keeps your attention glued right to the page until things finally unravel.
In the scorching heat of the Southwestern desert, afrightened old man knows his time is quickly running out ... as the lethal secret he protects can be hidden no longer.
Risa Sheridan knows everything about gold -- its mysteries, its allure, its perils. Her boss, Shane Tannahill -- owner of the ultra-successful Las Vegas gambling mecca, the Golden Fleece -- is addicted to the stuff. Now an ancient Celtic piece is being offered to Shane for his collection, with the promise of more to come, and the casino owner is hooked. But though she shares Shane's enthusiasm, Risa is wary -- because something about this particular artifact is mysterious and troubling, something that says "stay away." It is a voice that should be heeded, because soon people are dying all around them. And whether it's an ancient curse that has taken hold of their lives or the simple, murderous greed of unscrupulous adversaries, there is suddenly no place in the surreal, blinding glitter of Vegas for Risa and Shane to hide ...
Another excellent book in the Rarities Unlimited series. This has fascinating information about old gold and celtic antiquities, and you keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. Highly recommended.
