This energetic series launch from bestseller Bohnhoff introduces San Francisco PI Gina Miyoko. When Gina’s best friend, National Parks Service operative Rose Delgado, is shot and wounded in the line of duty, she teams with archeologist Cruz Veras to investigate. Their search for answers takes them to Cancún, Mexico, where Gina infiltrates the world of powerful antiquities traffickers and learns of newly discovered ancient cities with relics worth millions on the black market. Once Gina and Cruz travel deep into the jungle, Gina has to rely on her own wits as she tries to figure out who’s responsible for shooting Rose. A tough, sassy, and relatable investigator, Gina drives a Harley, packs a baby blue Magnum, and is trained in the martial arts. Her rich backstory and family life—her father was a San Francisco cop; her mother, a Russian émigré, plies her with oberegi and other good luck charms—adds unusual depth to a fun story. Readers will want to see a lot more of Gina.” — Publisher’s Weekly

Bohnhoff’s The Antiquities Hunter is a wild, breathless ride, a true pager turner. The plot alone, although full of exciting and unexpected turns, isn’t what makes it so compelling.

Bohnhoff’s The Antiquities Hunter is a fast, fun ride into the fresh world of high stakes, black market artifacts trading. Her cast of fantastically unique characters sucked me in from the start.
