Two recovery specialists. One murder. A hunt for the Dutchman's Lost Gold Mine becomes a race of survival. Former Army MP Landry Parker fell into the recovery specialist role quite by accident—to help her ailing father. Now that she’s on her own, she is determined to prove herself and honor her family legacy.
After being shot in the line of duty, former police officer Nickolai Baptiste became a recovery specialist, and he’s good at his job—maybe even the best. A potential client pits Landry and Nickolai against one another to find the Dutchman’s Lost Gold Mine map that was stolen from her murdered husband, and the potential payday is too enticing to pass up. The trail takes them from New Orleans to Weaver’s Needle in Arizona where legend claims the mine is hidden. Landry and Nickolai are no strangers to adventure, but the unlikely partners quickly discover there’s someone after the treasure and there are those who want to ensure the lost mine in Arizona’s Superstition Mountain stays lost forever.
Can Landry and Nickolai work together despite their distrust of each other to save the legend before more innocent lives are lost? Will they find the real treasure isn’t the gold, but something more valuable. . .true love and understanding?
It’s not every day I read a book that seems to make time stand still, but Weaver’s Needle did exactly that. I read for what seemed like minutes only to discover that an hour had slipped by.
The story wove legend with action and suspense as Nickolai and Landry sought the missing map. Though the introductory legend telling was a little dry, the rest of the book more than made up for it. The action was paced well, the mystery made sense and was unraveled at just the right pace.
I enjoyed the characters, the writing, the resolution. This was a great book.
