THE CURSE OF THE RUBY EYES
The Twelve Gems of Murder - Book 1
Who or what is killing archeologists?
Dark Secrets lurk in Amelia Albert's family history, and the murder of her great-grandfather spurs her to become a detective, specializing in criminal investigations. However, what she was about to discover was more than what she'd ever expected to find.
Amelia didn't believe in curses or the supernatural kind until she saw her first homicide case. They found a pile of ash on the floor of an archeologist's home, along with a small stone dragon, and a Burmese curse written on the wall, reminding her of notes she had read from her great-grandfather's unsolved murder in 1938.
Amelia partners with her boss, Detective Robert Flatterly, to work the case, and Amelia's ancestry becomes the focal point of the case. She discovers that the roots go much deeper into the past than she thought. Seven hundred years in the past, to be exact.
She uncovers that a tattoo she received along with her best friend Serafina, when they were younger, was created with ink made by Serafina's grandmother, who practices voodoo. When Amelia unknowingly rubs on her tattoo, it transported her to the past, giving Amelia a different perspective on the crimes committed.
After solving her first supernatural crime, Amelia opens a new secret department within her cold case department called "The Department of Investigations of Supernatural Crimes" (D. I. S. C.), with the Rose Arbor Island Police Department.
Can Amelia and her team find the scroll that can extinguish the curse and send the Naga Dragon back to the Netherworld permanently, before he unleashes untold evil in the world? Or will they become ash like the other victims?
