“Sword” is the first book in the Cord MacIntosh private investigator mystery series.
Cord MacIntosh is hired to find a stolen sword that once belonged to a Spanish conquistador. Soon, though, the bodies start to pile up and Cord finds that archaeologists are every bit as greedy and vicious as anyone else. Now he needs to find the sword, find out who the killer is, and keep himself alive too.
