The King's Gold
An Old World Novel of AdventurePaperback - 2008
One look at the centuries-old document she receives from a mysterious stranger is all it takes to plunge Lola Sanchez--a brilliant bibliophile and owner of the Red Lion bookshop--into the adventure of an already adventurous lifetime. The ancient writings tell of a stolen fortune in Montezuma's gold--and of the thief's transformation from conquistatore to alchemist . . . to werewolf.
Riches beyond imagining possibly await the stalwart globe-trotter who can solve the intricate riddles hidden in the artifact's crumbling pages. But a deadly curse is buried there as well. On a dangerous quest through the dark shadows of history, Lola and her dashing companion, Eric, will have to unravel the twisted strands of her own family's fantastical past--and stay a step ahead of the villainous treasure hunters who would eagerly kill for the secrets she possesses and the Aztec gold she seeks.
