Publisher's Summary

The job was 600 miles away from home, and that made it perfect. It didn't even matter that Hank Hunnicutt had a reputation as a kook; he was, D. J. Abbott thought, merely eccentric. After all, didn't he surround himself with every self-proclaimed practitioner of the occult arts who came his way?

The opportunity to spend some time at an archaeological dig on an Arizona ranch was everything a young graduate student trying to prove herself might want. And it was...until Hank suffered an accident, then disappeared. Suddenly, the guests were eyeing each other - and D. J. - with fear and suspicion. Only the person responsible knew what was going on, and when D. J. got too close to uncovering the truth, she discovered that some of the games being played by the people at the ranch have a deadly intent - and that she might just be the intended.

What the Critics Say

"The setting of this novel is fascinating: the desert of the American Southwest, with all of the mystery surrounding the Anasazi and other ancient peoples....Fans will enjoy this work." (Library Journal)

    "Readers can sometimes make the book. Or not,"

    I'd read this before, and had liked the story. I had a hard time with the narrator; she tended to drone a bit; well, if not drone, certainly flat lined a character that I'd imagined to be far more lively. Not a waste.

    "Dragons? In Arizona?"
    If you could sum up Summer of the Dragon in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, intelligent, engaging


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the interplay between DJ and Tom.


    What about Grace Conlin’s performance did you like?

    She did a wonderful job with the character of DJ.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    It's hard to find when you don't know what you're searching for.

    "Easy listening mystery"

    Good when you don't want to concentrate on the story. Interesting characters and mysterious happenings. Still don't know what it has to do with a dragon though.

    "Really juvenile"

    thin plot, very poorly characterized; if you're a fan of well written (Crais, Baldacci, Vince Flynn, etc) mysteries, don't waste your time and money.
