Kernels of Truth….When Eugenia Potter stumbles upon some ancient pottery shards on her ranch, she feels a profound connection with the past. And a deep desire to learn more about the relics. Now, she’s heeding the call of her soul–by visiting an archaeological camp amid the magnificent cliff dwellings of Colorado’s Mesa Verde.But strange things are happening at Mesa Verde, from the director’s increasing mental confusion to a visitor’s grisly death. Even a Talking Circle–a traditional ritual facilitated by the passing around of an ear of blue corn–doesn’t reveal the source of the trouble. And when a busload of teenagers on a hiking trip disappears without a trace, Mrs. Potter begins some digging… to unearth a cruel scheme, a long-buried secret, and the deadly fruits of a killer’s dark hungers.
