According to legend, the Burma ruby had the magic power to grant anything the heart desired. But it was cursed, and all who owned the stone would die tragically, damned for eternity. When Joseph Hanson inherited the gem after his uncle's bizarre murder, his wife Liza grew afraid. Though his fortune increased, he became surly and brutal, as if his humanness were being sucked from him. Suddenly, Liza knew there was only one way to stave off the curse of centuries.
