A pretty good book, plenty of suspense and romance... the only weak area is in the action segments, but, overall, a good book. ( )

I am finding Elizabeth Lowell consistently good. Little suspension and plenty of romance, which I'm a sucker for. I particularly enjoy these because they have some information that seems like it could be real about the jewelery business or about jems or metals. So, I feel like I might be gaining some new information from this contemporary fiction, which rarely happens. (Of course, I do understand that this is fiction and there's a good likelihood that the details were added to make a good story, so I don't pretend to have gained a lot of information. Still makes me feel like my time was a little more usefully spent than just stress-relief.)I highly recommend the entire jem/metal series, and Elizabeth Lowell in general. ( )

Gold, fabulous gold - Shane Tannahill wants something spectacular to showcase for the grand-opening of his Golden Fleece casino. Gold expert Risa Sheridan is more concerned with keeping the exhibit squeaky clean. When her past intersects with his passion, sparks fly.

Murder, haunted gold, and enough suspense to keep the pages turning. But the ending is a bit weak. ( )

Book description
In the scorching heat of the Southwestern desert, a frightened old man knows his time is quickly running out . . . as the lethal secret he protects can be hidden no longer.

Risa Sheridan knows everything about gold—its mysteries, its allure, its perils. Her boss, Shane Tannahill—owner of the ultra-successful Las Vegas gambling mecca, the Golden Fleece—is addicted to the stuff. Now an ancient Celtic piece is being offered to Shane for his collection, with the promise of more to come, and the casino owner is hooked. But though she shares Shane's enthusiasm, Risa is wary—because something about this particular artifact is mysterious and troubling, something that says "stay away." It is a voice that should be heeded, because soon people are dying all around them. And whether it's an ancient curse that has taken hold of their lives or the simple, murderous greed of unscrupulous adversaries, there is suddenly no place in the surreal, blinding glitter of Vegas for Risa and Shane to hide . .

Now an ancient Celtic piece is being offered to Shane for his collection, with the promise of more to come, and the casino owner is hooked.

And whether it's an ancient curse that has taken hold of their lives or the simple, murderous greed of unscrupulous adversaries, there is suddenly no place in the surreal, blinding glitter of Vegas for Risa and Shane to hide . . .

The most dazzling, spine-tingling combination of adventure, thrills, and sensuality yet from the gold standard in contemporary suspense fiction.
