Summary: The gifted musician Eva De Plain becomes an unwitting pawn in a struggle for a priceless Thomas Moran painting, a treasure which holds the powers of salvation. Eva’s creativity propels her on a journey of love and devastation from Mexico City to Augusta, Georgia, all the while being hunted by an ambitious psychopath bent on her destruction. This thriller involves pro golf athletes, art business insiders, and a savvy real estate tycoon, as lives from varying backgrounds intersect to influence each other. As the years go by, alliances are formed, but who can be trusted in the long run? The final battle between good and evil is a twist-and-turn hairpin ride occurring on and off the golf course during the famed Masters Tournament, and destruction is only a knife blade away. This stand-alone thriller is from Mark Sublette, best known for his ongoing Charles Bloom Murder Mystery art series set in the Southwest.

“Sublette’s well-honed characters of the turquoise trade drive a fast-paced journey through Navajoland with danger around every bend. Stone Men is another well-crafted novel in the Charles Bloom Murder Mystery series.” — Mark Winter, author of The Master Weavers and owner of the Historic Toadlena Trading Post

“Greed, friendship, and a snowy Santa Fe winter propel this mystery about devious turquoise dealers, as gallery owner Charles Bloom gets involved investigating fake Navajo jewelry on the rez for the FBI.” — Wolf Schneider, ABQ ARTS

“An intriguing tale of turquoise and silver and treachery for Mark Sublette’s characters Charles Bloom and Rachael Yellowhorse. As Sublette weaves this latest in his murder mystery series, he intersperses nuggets of real-life information about Native and Southwest jewelry, the rez, turquoise mining and trading, and Diné ways of life.” — Cindra Kline, author of Navajo Spoons: Indian Artistry and the Souvenir Trade 1880s – 1940s and Southwest Book Award recipient

Book Description:

In the fourth book in the Charles Bloom Murder Mystery series…

Gallup, New Mexico, near the Navajo Reservation, is home base for an exclusive group of turquoise dealers known as stone men. When the most successful among them, the President, stumbles onto the greatest turquoise find in decades, unfortunately for him its on Navajoland and hes not the only one who wants a piece of the claim. The President will do anything to protect his newfound turquoise mine, but there are international forces at play and they have no intention of letting a stone man from Gallup dictate the terms for valuable mineral rights. Simultaneously, Santa Fes Indian arts dealers are facing the bleak prospect of their sales being undercut by fake Navajo jewelry threatening to overrun the market. Gallery owner Charles Bloom is targeted by the FBI to become an undercover informant, his recent marriage to Rachael Yellowhorse making him the perfect patsy for the job. Little does Bloom know that his coerced involvement to help crack this case may wreck his marriage and inadvertently put his entire family in danger. A trained assassin now has Blooms family in his crosshairs. Its a race to see who can stake the strongest claim to the secrets hidden on the desert floor of the Navajo Reservation. The losers will pay with their lives and the winners stand to gain a fortune.
