Caves of Qobustan is an absorbing story about an unlikely heroine, the curator of rare manuscripts in the Library of Congress. After her boss is mysteriously murdered, her own life is turned upside-down when she discovers information that could destroy a powerful Russian mafia cartel. Kidnapped, pursued by a ruthless mobster with a pathological obsession for stolen art, betrayed by a romantic coworker, and hounded by an old boyfriend-turned CIA agent, she bravely endures through a bold and unpredictable climax. Woven throughout is an account of the first European expedition to the New World. Columbus is a man tortured by manic-depressive psychosis, who sacrifices his crew for riches and power. Action and psychological intrigue will engage readers looking for a fast-paced, intelligent, and intricately layered story told in colorful detail; from a muddy road in 15th-century Spain, to the stunning conclusion in modern-day California.
