The Blue Corn Murders: A Eugenia Potter Mystery (Mass Market Paperback)
Kernels of Truth....
When Eugenia Potter stumbles upon some ancient pottery shards on her ranch, she feels a profound connection with the past. And a deep desire to learn more about the relics. Now, she's heeding the call of her soul--by visiting an archaeological camp amid the magnificent cliff dwellings of Colorado's Mesa Verde.
But strange things are happening at Mesa Verde, from the director's increasing mental confusion to a visitor's grisly death. Even a Talking Circle--a traditional ritual facilitated by the passing around of an ear of blue corn--doesn't reveal the source of the trouble. And when a busload of teenagers on a hiking trip disappears without a trace, Mrs. Potter begins some digging... to unearth a cruel scheme, a long-buried secret, and the deadly fruits of a killer's dark hungers.

Praise for The Blue Corn Murders: A Eugenia Potter Mystery…
"[Mrs. Potter is] an appealing addition to the ranks of amateur detectives, a kind of combined Nero Wolfe, Miss Marple and Lord Peter Wimsey."
