Just as Natalie Rowe crossed the street, an icy gust of wind scratched at her cheeks as if it were sandpaper. Shivering from the cold, she picked up the pace. She waved at an approaching cab only to be splattered with water as it sped by. Sometimes Natalie regretted relocating to Washington, D.C. Not only did the bad weather depress her, but living in the city was terribly expensive.

She was running late for her meeting with Amman Lal Ded. She had made an appointment to see the controversial archeologist from Pakistan because she owed him a favor, and also because the letter he’d sent her piqued her curiosity.
