"He wondered if the pots
he had discovered were still in the cave. So many years had
gone by. All night his mind seethed with ideas of retrieving
and selling them to the Royal Arab Emirate. By morning he was
exhausted, but felt confident he could pull it off. Still, a
niggling doubt kept creeping into his plans. It would be
disastrous if it didn't work. It would become an international
fiasco, resulting in humiliation and criminal charges."

A Contemporary Suspense
Bob Locke, a long time
teacher on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, is shocked when
he learns his retirement annuity has been wiped out.
Traumatized by the loss, he steals two rare ancient Anasazi
pots which he sells to a diplomat of Mid-Eastern Emirate.
The inconceivable act
catapults him into a web of unforeseen intrigue. Stealing the
pots, eluding road blocks, tribal police and Arizona State
Troopers, was formidable enough, but what follows turns
perilous when he attempts to collect his money. An unassuming,
warm-hearted educator turned into an embittered schemer, finds
himself embroiled with terrorists, the Mossad, CIA, FBI, and
an aspiring actress.
A note from Kas:
I read this book one
day while riding from Phoenix to Tucson and back again. Upon
returning home, I still had some to read and our family dinner
was delayed by an hour until I finished reading it. I'm not
sure what the rest of the family thought, but for me it was
worth the wait!! Kas
