Full Fiendish Findings...
 
 

Bill and Jen are off on another adventure, and they aren’t going to let an assassin or two (or ten) get in the way.

 

Gold-in-Quartz is the second book in the Jewelry Hunter series, featuring married couple Bill and Jen Watson. In the first book, Bill and Jen thwart a terrorist plot, and a fatwa has been called on them. With their lives on the line, a long suffering FBI agent named Frank is tasked with keeping them, and their equally reckless friend Tiffany, safe from harm. No worries if you haven’t read the first book, though, as all of that is explained early on in the book, and you won’t feel at all as if you don’t know what’s going on.

 

In Gold-in-Quartz, Bill and Jen are off to a gold mine to purchase some gems for Jen’s new jewelry business. She wants to offer unusual choices to her customers, so she is set on finding gold-in-quartz as a signature gem for her line. Seems like a fairly simple outing, but when the couple arrives at the office, they walk right into a crime scene. The office secretary is dead, another worker lays dying, and the killers are pretty determined that no one will walk out of this alive – including Bill and Jen. Luckily enough, the intrepid couple never leave home unarmed, and the firefight that ensues set the tone for the rest of the book.

 

Now, it’s up to Bill, Jen, and Frank to figure out what’s going on, and who is behind it. What were the killers after? Were they part of the fatwa, sent to take out Bill and Jen? Were they after something from the mine? It’s unclear, but whatever their reason, they won’t stop until Bill and Jen are dead. From the tunnels of a mine to the streets of Paris, Bill and Jen are determined to stay safe and solve the mystery, with a little help from their friends.

 

Gold-in-Quartz is certainly an action packed story, with gun fights, explosions, undercover operations and more filling every page. Danger is everywhere, and Bill and Jen Watson are right in the  middle of it. Though there’s plenty of action, the characters themselves often come off as rather hokey and cliched. Though they certainly aren’t meant to be, it’s easier to picture Bill and Jen as cranky senior citizens packing heat than daring young crime fighters. Still, the story itself is interesting, giving you hints to motive and mystery in between the shooting.
