Gold-in-Quartz, a Jewelry Hunter Thriller, the second in the Jewelry Hunter series, picks up Jenn Watson’s exploits a year after an Islamic cleric declared a fatwa against her and her husband, Bill, for averting a terrorist plot to blow up two passenger ferries off the southern coast of California. Now, the Watsons must contend with another group of murderous thugs.

While on a jewelry buying trip to the Northern California Gold Country, they inadvertently stumble into a gruesome shooting at the Speckled Gold Mine. Caught in a set of circumstances that becomes more mysterious and perilous each day, the Watsons eventually find themselves in the FBI’s witness protection program. However, their new enemies are close at hand and pursue them from the Gold Country to Catalina Island to New York City to Paris to South Africa. The Watsons are compelled to rely on the FBI, the French police, and substantial measures of their own quick wits, intuition, and marksmanship to survive.

As events lead them to Johannesburg, the Watsons and their associates, including their tough-talking, trigger-happy friend Tiffany and a drop-dead gorgeous FBI agent who refuses to carry a loaded weapon, must devise a plan to neutralize their adversaries before their luck runs out. Read More
