About the Book

Susan Runcan wants to clear the name of her famous archeologist grandfather Lindon Runcan, who died fifteen years earlier. Although Lindon claimed thieves stole the ancient artifacts from his last expedition in Egypt depriving the Egyptian government and his backers of the spoils, Lindon stole them himself. Susan inherits the artifacts from her uncle, including a mysterious gold medallion, as well as her grandfather's stately home in the town of Lake Masley. She comes hoping to the lake to learn the reason her grandfather risked his career for these artifacts. But instead, she finds a town gripped with fear ruled by rumors of murders.
