PI Gina "Tinkerbell" Miyoko is alarmed when her best friend Rose, an
undercover agent, reveals she has a stalker. Together they decided to
catch Rose's stalker, but it turns out not everything is as it seems.
However, this is just the start and they soon realize that someone is out
to scare Rose from testifying in an upcoming case about looted Anasazi
artifacts. Who better to protect Rose than Gina?
THE ANTIQUITIES HUNTER has
just the ingredients I need for a good PI story. A strong character with
an odd family (very religious mother and a Sherlock Holmes-obsessed
father), an interesting case (I love anything to do with missing
artifacts), and a hint of a romantic interest. I'm not a big romance fan,
but it works fine when it's served with some action and stolen artifacts.
Gina "Tink" Miyoko, is a new favorite character of mine. In some ways,
she reminded me of Jaya Jones from the Jaya Jones Treasure Hunt
Mystery series by Gigi Pandian. I love that series, so you can guess I
was thrilled to discover this book.
THE ANTIQUITIES HUNTER is
filled with action and humor. I found the story to be interesting and as
I'm a big fan of Indiana Jones can't I help but love the whole missing
artifact angle and dangerous situations in the jungle. I just love how
Tink's mother seems to think that every single man is a potential future
son-in-law... Criminals should not assume that Tink, despite her
shortness, is not capable of defending herself. I found THE ANTIQUITIES HUNTER to be an
excellent book and I can't wait to read more books in the series!
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.
