"The dubious art and antiquities underground is brought to life by professional archaeologist Baron."—Booklist
When a member of the staff at a Turkish excavation is murdered and a mosaic floor disappears from her site overnight, archaeologist Tamar Saticoy plunges into the shady side of the antiquities trade in a quest to discover who is responsible for the theft.

Are the two men harmless charmers—or villains?
Then two more members of the excavation staff are killed: Tamar's venal British colleague Chatham, who has discovered a hoard of Thracian gold in Bulgaria, and the Turk Orman who—like Tamar—is following the trail of the stolen mosaic. Unless she can crack this case, Tamar may become the next target for murder....
