    • Abstract:
      Summary: "A deafening explosion rocks a historic Oklahoma City hotel, sending archaeologist Faye Longchamp-Mantooth crashing to the marble floor of the lobby. She's unhurt but shaken--after all, anytime something blows up in Oklahoma City, the first word on everyone's lips is the same: bomb. Faye is in town for a conference celebrating indigenous arts, but she is soon drawn into the aftermath of the explosion, which cracks open the old hotel's floor to reveal subterranean chambers that had housed Chinese immigrants a century before. Faye is fascinated by the tunnels, which are a time capsule back to the early twentieth century--but when the bodies of three children are discovered deep beneath the city, her sense of discovery turns to one of dread."-- Publisher's description.

Booklist Reviews 2019 September #1

Archaeologist Faye Longchamp is in the lobby of Oklahoma City's grandest hotel when the bomb goes off. A conference focusing on native arts was starting when there was a rumbling beneath her. Evans' description of the scene amounts to a stunning set piece as guests topple to the floor, perfectly synchronized and one man flees, arms flailing as if to stop gravity from dragging him back down. Afterward, the novel pinwheels off in a number of directions. A monologue from the mysterious person behind the bombing bemoans that the bomber screwed up and managed to kill only himself. First responders discover something startling as they descend through the hole the bomb created: underground chambers from an earlier century, created and lived in by Chinese laborers who were denied access to conventional housing, drawing Faye into the investigation. Artwork adorns the underground walls, but, as the police bumble on, the art is defaced. Children's bodies are found and autopsied; they suffered from hemophilia. There is a link joining these disparate events, to be discovered by readers who don't mind the less-than-breakneck pace. Overall, a solid entry—based in part on an actual Oklahoma bombing—in a popular series. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
