Shaken by the death of his beloved wife and wrestling with powerful personal demons, Professor Gabriel McKenna leaves New York City for New Mexico to claim an inheritance from mysterious distant relatives. He finds something other than a Land of Enchantment.
Unseen enemies threaten his life. Old friends turn up and rally to his side. Together they plunge into a lethal struggle for a 19th century treasure, the fabled Lost Adams gold. McKenna enters a world of violence, passion, sexual abuse, deceit, and death that causes him to question his core beliefs and values, and even his sense of self. Desperate to find a way home, McKenna must first unearth the secret of an old family manuscript and risk his life against overpowering odds. He must rekindle his long-dead fighting spirit and discover new reasons to live and love.

I loved it
This book seemed to come out of nowhere for me. I am not normally a reader/listener of this style, but this book was a pleasure for me to hear. I have lived in Colorado and been to New Mexico a few times so I enjoyed the cultural angle immensely. Normal mysteries drive me crazy as I never can see where they are going and the end seems ridiculous. This book avoided the pitfall of totally unrealistic outcomes while still telling a pretty sold story. I enjoyed this book so much that I bought the next book in the series.

Very good story, an awesome adventure, action packed, suspenseful. I zoomed through this book, couldn’t wait to hear what was coming next and Richard Poe did a exceptional job narrating. I’m hoping the other books in this series will be as spectacular as this one. Highly recommended this book!
