The Butterfly Twins Summary:
In the fifth book in the Charles Bloom Murder Mystery series. Prehistoric pots worth millions hidden on a high cliff in Wupatki National Monument hold vital clues to prehistoric agriculture and migrations and to Santa Fe art dealer Charles Blooms own future. To ensure his family’s safety, Bloom must uncover the meaning of a pothunters plunder, expose an unethical international gallery owner, and solve a thousand-year-old mystery that centers on his Canyon Road art gallery. Unbeknownst to Bloom, Juan de Oñates Santa Fe governorship four hundred years earlier has seemingly unstoppable life-and-death implications for his wife, the Navajo weaver Rachael Yellowhorse.

Billy Poh of the Santa Fe Police Department must come to grips with a historical quagmire and stop the cascade of atrocities from landing directly on Bloom’s front porch.
“Sublette brings prehistoric culture alive, layering it with hidden treasure, secrets, and evil in Charles Bloom’s own backyard, while the life of Bloom’s wife hangs in the balance. Haunting images, fascinating history, and nail-biting suspense.” – Lorna Sorko, Private Investigator and author of the upcoming Marlo Logan mystery series
“Prehistoric artifacts, Conquistador buried treasure and a devious art dealer’s ambitions land squarely in Charles Bloom’s world. The Santa Fe/ Toadlena art dealer must find the thread that binds the unique pieces together or risk losing everything. Sublette’s in-depth knowledge of Native American art and its role in the historical drama of the Southwest provides a backdrop of reality few Murder Mystery writers can provide. BRAVO!” – Mark Winter, author of The Master Weavers and owner of the HIstoric Toadlena Trading Post.
“If you have ever been to Santa Fe, and are looking to go back The Butterfly Twins will take you there. Dynamic characters and a fast-paced story are woven into the history of the region and into the art business in a way that brings the story to life. The author’s depth of knowledge about the inner-workings of the art business come through in a way that blends naturally within the story. You will learn something about the world of art and you will have a great time doing it… You will not want to put this down and will want to immediately read the next books as you get to the end of this one. If it was on Netflix I would be serial watching…” Jared Swanson, publisher, Western Art & Architecture, Big SkyJournal, Tahoe Quarterly, Cascade Journal
