All roads lead to Thailand, where the lovers of ancient treasure tangle with international black markets.

In this complex landscape of protectors and predators, we meet Martin Moon and Delia Rivera. Both have been defeated by the dark powers of the art-trade netherworld. Together, they seek to rise again—to escape the sudden silence of lives extinguished and loves lost. But the savage forces that nearly destroyed them before are still at large. In Thailand, they set out to uncover a secret new archaeological site, which is being stripped of its ancient Buddhist statuary by merciless smugglers. Their quest turns deadly.

Is there any such thing as a fresh start in this wicked world? Or is there only the wisdom of failure?
