Abstract

Excerpt

Stepping outside the glass doors of the Phoenix airport was like prying open a mummy’s tomb. The dry, stifling air caught like dust in my throat. Had Finn thought the same thing when he passed through these doors? Gathering the sun’s last rays, Phoenix shimmered from the center of a massive volcanic crater surrounded by low ridges. Mountains to the north and south stood as hulking pyramids. Of course, my assumption about Finn being in Phoenix could be a total mistake. I might have placed too much weight on the flimsy evidence of a mysterious postcard, and he had never made it to Phoenix at all. If so, like the ancient pharaohs, he had disappeared completely.
