About the Book: Her memory is a blank. Texas State Trooper Mark Bowles finds her wandering in the wreckage of a 160 car pile up, crying for her missing children. Bowles tries to unravel the mystery of who she is, but Death seems to be on her trail, and everyone she’s crossed paths with is dead or missing. Marked for the slaughter, she leads Bowles in a race for survival through a nightmare world of deadly occult secrets. For centuries those secrets have been kept by Ayauhteotl, an ancient mummy from an Aztec tomb, and now she’s set her sights on Trooper Bowles and the woman he’s rapidly falling for. Who is Avery Maxwell, and what’s behind her memory loss? The mystery just might kill them both.
