Long Road Out of Ur
by Joel Thimell
Something is rotten in Sumeria. A troublesome priest has been murdered; the pagan ziggurat defiled; a royal tomb robbed; and a would-be grifter, Lot, is in the wrong place at the wrong time. His father, grandfather and cousin are each likely suspects and Lot doesn't know who he can trust. Everyone thinks he knows where the loot is hidden and someone wants it all--even if it's over Lot's dead body.
