Prominent archaeologists Professor Walt Gaines and his wife, Jocelyn, are on their way home from excavating at La Chimenea, fabulous Mayan ruins, when Jocelyn is fatally wounded. Thus begins the taut saga of Clancy, Tom, and Will Gaines's investigation into their mother's death, their father's new extravagant lifestyle--and Emma. Richard Ferrone's naturally gruff voice is perfect for the preponderance of male voices and viewpoints, distinguishing father and brothers with delicate vocal nuances. He paces his narration to maintain suspense and listener interest, enhancing the predictable events and somewhat impoverished dialogue. S.C.A.
