    Wrong title for a book that lacks power and ferocity. Overly descriptive in places as if the authors are only trying to fill up the pages. The main character, Nora, is often portrayed as an overzealous, selfish brat, only concerned about what she can get from others. Boring and predictable.

    I enjoyed the book very much. Should be made into a movie.

    Brings the geography and archeological history of the Colorado plateau to life. Great characters and wonderful story. Tough to put down.

    What an outstanding work. A fast paced read that I couldn't put down. Their writing skills paint vivid scenes for the reader, it was like watching a movie as I moved through the chapters. This story is one of their greatest works yet. If you want an action packed murder mystery this is it!
