Archaeologist Sophie Malone is still haunted a year after she was left for dead inside a remote Irish cave. Now she’s convinced that her night of terror is linked to recent violence in Boston. Did the killer under arrest steal the ancient Celtic treasure from the cave that night? Or is another killer out there, ready to strike again?

Boston detective “Scoop” Wisdom has recovered from his injuries and is after the bomber who nearly killed him. Tough and stubborn, he’s the best at detecting lies—?except maybe those of Sophie Malone. When an ex-cop becomes the victim of ritual sacrifice, it’s clear nobody’s safe, and everyone’s a suspect.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Well-plotted, with Neggers’ trademark witty dialogue and cracking sexual tension, this is a keeper.” 

    RT Book Reviews

  • “Narrator Carol Monda relies on the supporting characters to exercise her skill with accents, providing a gentle Irish lit for Sophie’s friends and family in Ireland and strong Boston accents for the police detectives. For the two main characters, Sophie and Scoop, Monda delivers unaccented portrayals, a decision that prevents the use of accents from taking over the story.”

Listener Opinions

    " Strongly recommend reading Book 1: The Mist first. Not just because you may be lost with all the characters thrown at you at the beginning of this sequel, but mainly because it is very difficult to bond with or get in sync with the characters as people. For my reading preference, I find the joy to be in connecting with and caring about the characters to enjoy the novel. I find this hard to do here because the author jumps around a lot bringing us backstories of all the various things that happened in The Mist, and to whom and why, and I found myself not caring much one way or the other. I finished it so I could give it a fair rating, plus I hate to quit on a book, but I didn't look forward to picking it up each time. Reading The Mist first may have changed that. I usually like Ms. Neggars works, but this is not one of my favorites. "

    " Not bad. Doesn't flow as smoothly as I'd like it to, but I like the characters and the storyline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacy | 1/15/2014

    " I think this book would have been better if I read the book that came before it. There really is no character build-up so it was hard to really know what was going on. I basically only finished it because I felt like I "should" finish it. The plot really revolved around solving a bombing that occured in a previous novel. This book didn't seem to stand on it's own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nanci | 12/24/2013

    " Once again, a fairly predictable book but I don't mind that and I liked it. I just like traveling along the mystery. Again, if you want true suspense and on the edge of your seat, this won't be it. This book comes after The Mist in the series. As with all the others, you can read alone but it is nice to read them in order just to have more of the back story. This one is especially that way. "

    " Typical Carla Neggers. Pulls you in right away, keeps you in, finishes great. On to her next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Madison Warner Fairbanks | 12/11/2013

    " have read all of this series and the others. For some reason I was more distracted by prior characters in this one than the story. Not sure why. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Shurden | 11/24/2013

    " Love reading about Ireland. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 11/5/2013

    " the storyline was good,but did not care for the back and forth between Boston and Ireland,I guess that was how the story would make sense thou...still felt like something was missing.Maybe just missing for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karendenice | 10/28/2013

    " This book is part of a series. It is light quick reading. Romance/murder mystery. I enjoyed the whole series. They kept my interest and I look forward to the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg Benjamin | 10/4/2013

    " Not quite as tight as The Widow, the first in this series. Still has the great Neggers atmosphere, and Scoop Wisdom is a wonderful character. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pam | 10/3/2013

    " This particular series is underwritten--keeps referring back to the previous books in a way that requires you to know what goes on. Not truly stand alone books. I used to love her books but it is getting easier to wait for a paperback or borrowed edition. I don't buy in hardback. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doris Nash | 7/30/2013

    " Read it but in some places very slow "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Connie Becerra | 6/10/2013

    " I have to agree with the other people that critiqued this book, I should have read the first four in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 12/18/2012

    " A new murder mystery story involving an archeologist and a police detective involving ancient ritual sacrifices in this day and age. Very good and highly recommend for an entertaining read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandra | 4/23/2012

    " Well, I just found it is #4 in a series which I have not previously read. That makes some sense. I would recommend going back and reading the previous books to really enjoy this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kari | 3/21/2012

    " I really likes this latest in the series. Scoop has always been a favorite. Definitely not a stand alone book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa G. | 3/13/2012

    " If you like romantic suspense with fantasy overtones, then you'll love this book. It incorporates a suspenseful plot with elements of myth very well. Personally, I've love every one of her books that I've read and eagerly await another installation in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 1/23/2012

    " Too long in the tooth. Good plot but it took forever to get there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Deena Scintilla | 12/28/2011

    " Not one of my favorite mysteries. It seemed very "light-weight". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andra | 6/12/2011

    " I didn't realize this was the last of a series, really need to read the others first in order to know the continuing story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon Klotz | 1/16/2011

    " Always a page turner. Still love this author - just enuf spice and mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jacqueline Seewald | 11/10/2010

    " This tale of romantic suspense continues the current series. The characters tie Ireland to Boston. Scoop and Sophie are two very sympathetic characters involved in solving a dangerous mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacque | 7/6/2010

    " I really liked the begigging of the book, especially with the Irish setting. The heroine was interesting. The mystery caught my imagination. Unfortunately, the resolution was bizarre and disappointing. Also, there were way too many characters that had absolutely nothing to do with the story. "
