In the search for her eternal love, the re-incarnated cave girl visits family in Australia and when her aunt is robbed Vic pursues the bad guys to a mysterious grotto where legend says a horrible monster guards a family treasure – and finds herself confronted by other equally virulent threats along the way! A swell vacation turns into a fight for survival!
All the things you expect from a Vic Challenger novel - bad guys, cryptids, nature, just a mention of social issue, 1920’s nostalgia, and Vic continues her search for her lost love. She is with Lin Li in Australia, visiting family on her mothers side. It’s a swell vacation, then whamo! The best laid plans of travel writers and their friends often go kaboom! Time after time, Vic and Lin find the relevance to the saying, ‘It’s easy to get dead when you’re slow.’ Savage, unpredictable action! Guaranteed!
#5 in the series but each novel stands on it's own.
