READ & DOWNLOAD Þ Catacombs Housed Chinese immigrants a century before Faye is fascinated by the tunnels which are a time capsule back to the early twentieth century―but when the bodies of three children are discovered deep beneath the city her sense of discovery turns to one of dread. An archaeological murder mysteryFaye Longchamp Mantooth is a respected archaeologist visiting Oklahoma City for a conference celebrating indigenous arts when an explosion rocks the hotel lobby hosting the delegates This event causes everybody to remember the dark days following the original Oklahoma City bombing but as Faye soon discovers the truth about the explosion is even disturbingBuried deep beneath the city there are ancient catacombs that housed the Chinese labour force that built the city at the turn of the century This vast network of tunnels and secret entrances served as a safe haven for the Chinese at a time when their lives were made very difficult above ground Poverty exploitation and racism were the order of the day and they found refuge under the city This account of actual events was really fascinating to me Anecdotal and photographic evidence still exists to this day The explosion uncovers a staircase leading down into the catacombs and several chambers and in one of these the investigating team discovers 3 small bodies wrapped in shrouds This sets the scene for the story as Faye is tasked with helping the FBI make sense of the ghastly discoveryMany startling twists and turns set a fairly fast paced story but I found the writing lumbered and the characters were not convincing I did however find the background about the indigenous people and their customs and traditions fascinating so there is a very positive side to the bookGillianBreakaway Reviewers received a copy of the book to review
