Lyn Hamilton (1944-2009) wrote 11 archaeological mystery novels featuring feisty antiques dealer Lara McClintoch. Lyn loved travelling the world and learning about ancient cultures. Both passions are woven into her novels. She lived in Toronto, Canada, and worked in public relations and public service, with a focus on culture and heritage. The Xibalba Murders, first published in 1997, was nominated for the Arthur Ellis Award for best first crime novel in Canada.

A very traditional mystery, set in Ireland.
An old man dies. He leaves a reasonable inheritance to a few old friends and his estranged family, and also some clues to a treasure. The first clues lead to more clues, and these clues must still be deciphered. And along the way some of the heirs (and treasure hunters) meet untimely demises.
Very well written!
