A 60-year-old mystery ensnares gemologist Kimberley West in a small town’s secrets, igniting old grievances that lead to murder.

While digging in a private emerald mine, Kim’s standard poodle unearths an emerald stolen 60 years ago. But how did an emerald snatched from a New York museum wind up buried in a North Carolina mine 500 miles away?

Before Kim can tackle that mystery, friends stumble onto a man’s body. Convinced the man’s murder is somehow connected to the emerald, Kim launches an investigation into the gemstone’s past.

In true Indiana Jones fashion, Kim and her sidekick poodle uncover buried treasure – and trouble.
