Madrugada is about the theft of artifacts from an archaeological dig in the tiny Maya village of Yaxum. It begins with a ritualistic murder of one of the archaeologists. Characters include American expats in Merida, Yucatan, a smart woman detective from New York, the depressed State police chief and the Maya residents of Yaxum.  Available in eBooks only. Paperback to come.

2012: Deadly Awakening is a mystery concerning grisly murders in Merida Yucatan on the eve of December, 21, 2012, understood by some to be the end of the world according to Maya predictions. You will find the same heroes as the ones in Madrugada sifting their way through clues to identify the murderer. In this book, characters include people who think the world will end, people who think we will evolve to a higher consciousness, Maya villagers and strange expats.
