book4bThe Elven Fire. A talisman of great power, the name strikes fear in the hearts of pagan and Christian alike. In the right hands it can restore wasted land. In the wrong, it can become a powerful weapon, or worse. When the Elven Fire is stolen in the old mining town of Patina, it’s more than a case of theft. It’s a disaster waiting to happen.

For former jewel thief and swindler Silas Grimmer, now acting constable of Patina, the Elven Fire is all this and more. He once used it in a scam that made a powerful enemy. When a beautiful green-eyed woman reports it stolen, he wonders if his past has caught up with him again. But crime, like magic, may not be all as it seems, and Silas Grimmer must sort out what is real and what is not before the Elven Fire destroys them all.
