The scorpion's tail / Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child.

Preston, Douglas J, (author.). Child, Lincoln, (author.).


A mummified corpse, over half a century old, is found in the cellar of an abandoned building in a remote New Mexico ghost town. Corrie is assigned what seems to her a throwaway case: to ID the body and determine cause of death. Hidden on the corpse lies a 16th century Spanish gold cross of immense value. When they at last identify the body - and the bizarre cause of death - Corrie and Nora open a door into a terrifying, secret world of ancient treasure and modern obsession: a world centered on arguably the most defining, frightening, and transformative moment in American history.
