The Xibalba Murders (Lara McLintoch Mysteries)

The Xibalba Murders - Lyn Hamilton Antiques dealer Lara McClintoch goes to Mexico at the calling of her local expert, Dr. Hernan Castillo Rivera, because he tells her there is an important archaeological dig going on that may result in some new finds for her shop.Almost immediately after Lara's arrival, Castillo Rivera disappears and Lara finds herself drawn into intrigue not only surrounding the archaeological site but also the museum for which Castillo Rivera was once the director.I began to suspect the "whodunnit" at about the two-thirds mark of the story, but still enjoyed the twists, turns and adventures of this thriller that deals with the history of the Mayan culture and also with the realities and challenges of archaeology in a third-world region.Highly recommended.
