(The first book in the Rogue Adventures: Bloody Baja series)
A novel by

 
 
A disgraced British anthropologist hopes his YouTube adventure channel will redeem him, but vengeful treasure hunters have other plans.

From the author of the internationally best-selling Bone Guard archaeological adventures!

On the trail of a legendary Jesuit mission in Baja—and the treasure it may contain—Nigel Rowe leaps into action to save the life of his producer when the man takes a bullet meant for Nigel. Alas, the list of those who might wish him dead spans the globe and ranges from American treasure hunters to Russian mobsters to his own dear brother, with their mother's consent if not her explicit approval. Pity. And bullets are so mundane. Might as well drown him in the swimming pool. Oh, sorry, spoilers!

When ex-Marine Devi Alexander strolls up for a bodyguard interview, and dresses him down for his lax security, she might be precisely what he needs, or the last face he'll ever see. Either way, Nigel's willing to give it a go, and together with an unreliable guide, they plunge into the mountains in search of wealth, fame, and footage destined for viral consumption. Pray the video's not of Nigel taking a shot to the head. After all, a man can't enjoy his ratings if he's six feet under. Five stars! Splat him again!

Will Nigel survive long enough to work out who's after him, or meet a sticky end in the mountains of Mexico? All he can hope is that his new partner's not the one who takes him down.
