From New York Times bestselling author Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, a new private detective series featuring Gina "Tinkerbell" Miyoko, who must go undercover in the Mexican jungle to hunt down a mysterious antiquities dealer.

Gina "Tinkerbell" Miyoko is not your typical private eye. Armed with a baby blue Magnum, a Harley blessed with Holy Water by her dramatically disposed mother, and a Japanese mingei tucked in her pocket (a good luck charm from her Sherlock Holmes-obsessed father) Tink spends her time sniffing out delinquent dads in the San Francisco Bay area and honing her detective skills.

But when her best friend Rose, an undercover agent, discovers there's a stalker on her tail, she hires Tink as a bodyguard. Someone must be trying to intimidate Rose and scare her out of testifying in an upcoming case on looted Anasazi artifacts. But when Tink tries to flush-out the stalker, things take a far more dangerous turn.

Now, with a dead black-market dealer and an injured Rose on her hands, Tink must take her best friend's place and follow the looters' trail towards a powerful and lucrative antiquities collector in Cancun, Mexico. Equipped with an ingenious disguise and a teasingly coy persona to match, Tink is determined to find out who is behind the attack on Rose and the illegal trafficking of these priceless artifacts. Along the way, she will find help in the most unlikely of partners...

Deep in the jungle and far from civilization, Tink must decide who she can trust as she tries to unearth the ones responsible behind the pilfering and bloodshed - and still make it out alive.

Praise for this book

"Maya Bohnhoff has delivered a delightful mystery with an intrepid heroine who is part female Sam Spade and part Indiana Jones. A page-turner to the very end. A fast-paced, action-packed tale that will have you turning the pages into the wee hours of the morning. Sequel, please!" - Julie McElwain

"A witty and thoroughly engaging page-turner that would make Lara Croft's head spin. Gina Miyoko is a unique, sassy, and very welcome addition to the top rank of fictional private eyes." - Zoë Sharp

"Witty, feisty, sassy--a character to give Philip Marlowe a run for his money any day of the week--Gina 'Tink' Miyoko is my new favorite heroine. With whip-smart crackling dialogue and a plot that could turn on a sixpence, this is a fine and exciting debut and a thrilling piece of modern crime writing. Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, I salute you." - E S Thomson
