DEADLY DEPTHS   Book One in the Matthew Shane Series

The death by bizarre means of his mentor, Professor Barrington Holmes, draws Mathew Shane, a law professor at a university in Salem, Massachusetts, into the quest of five noted archeologists, known as The Monkey’s Paws, for an obscure object of unprecedented historic and financial value.  As the suspected murders of others of the Monkey’s Paws follow their pursuit of five clues found in a packet of five ancient parchments,  Shane’s commitment to disprove the police theory of suicide by Professor Holmes carries him to the steamy bayous of New Orleans, the backstreets of Montreal, the sunken wreck of a pirate vessel off Barbados, and the city of Maroon descendants of escaped slaves in Jamaica.
