Publisher's Summary

In the scorching heat of the Southwestern desert, a frightened old man knows his time is quickly running out, as the bad karma of his own good fortune is finally closing in on him after 50 years.

Risa Sheridan knows everything there is to know about gold; and her boss, Shane Tannahill, is addicted to the stuff, having already made the precious metal the theme of his ultrasuccessful Las Vegas casino. Now an ancient Celtic piece is being offered to Shane, with the promise of more to come, and the casino owner is hooked. Risa, however, is wary, because something about this particular artifact says "stay away".

Soon people are dying all around Risa and Shane, as the wrong hands reach out for a remarkable golden treasure wrapped in a terrifying conundrum that dates back to the time of the Druids. However, it is a more contemporary danger that is drawing the beautiful gold expert and her gold-loving employer closer together, and is placing them in the center of an insidious plot to destroy Shane Tannahill and everything he's struggled so hard to build.

Critic Reviews

"Tucci's gravelly voice excels in the faster moments of the plot, whether voicing a purr or a growl, as she presents Lowell's main characters, antique gold expert Risa Sheridan and Las Vegas casino mogul Shane Tannahill¿" (AudioFile)

Running Scared Abridged

I’m not a fan of abridged books generally, but this one was done pretty well. While I haven’t read the actual book recently enough to remember what parts were cut out, there were no obvious jumps & hitches to point it out. Still, if the audiobook hadn’t been on sale, I doubt I would have given it a chance. I’m glad I did. After the 1st book in the series, this was my 2nd favorite of the Rarities Unltd series.
