Shadows among the Ruins, a Murder Mystery Set in the Southwest, Now Available through Camel Press
Shadows among the Ruins, a murder mystery by Marie Romero Cash, is now available through Camel Press. The story, set in Santa Fe, New Mexico, features a sexy female sleuth and her two macho suitors., 1/04/2011 - Seattle, WA.—Shadows among the Ruins (190 pp, $15.95, ISBN: 978-1-60381-834-6), a murder mystery by Marie Romero Cash, is now available through Camel Press. The story, set in Santa Fe, New Mexico, features a sexy female sleuth and her two macho suitors.

“Marie Romero Cash writes about Santa Fe with a local’s razor-sharp insights,” says Kirk Ellis, Co-Executive Producer/Screenwriter, HBO’s John Adams, “and peoples her exciting mystery with a gallery of colorful, authentic New Mexico characters. The plot moves with the speed and force of a Southwestern thunderstorm.”

“Shadows among the Ruins will compel some Southwestern mystery writers take another look at their own work,” says Forrest Fenn, author of eight books on history, art, and archaeology. “Marie Cash made me sit up and take notice. Her come-along plot made me miss dinner, but it was worth it. Now, after I get something to eat, I’m going to read it again. You have to like this book.”

All her life Jemimah Hodge has been a cowgirl at heart, even though she’d never been on a horse until she moved to Texas. Now in her mid-thirties, Jemimah is looking for greener pastures—a place where she can spend more time in a saddle than a chair. A short visit to New Mexico is enough to convince her to close the doors of her thriving practice, gather up her belongings, and transport them to a small ranch located in the juniper covered foothills of the Ortiz Mountains south of Santa Fe. Hoping to continue in the field of Psychology, she takes a job with the local Sheriff’s Department. She expects her work to involve little more than assessing a few criminals a week and reporting her findings to the Court. Wrong! Jemimah finds herself knee deep in the investigation of a series of gruesome murders that took place right smack in the center of an ancient Indian pueblo. This case will not only test her mettle, but also tug at her heartstrings, for it requires her to work side by side with Detective Rick Romero, a true Hey-let-me-be-the-cop kind of guy with a soft spot for a pretty lady on an Appaloosa horse.

Marie Romero Cash was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In her mid-thirties, she discovered the traditional arts of northern New Mexico. After twenty years of creating award-winning art, she began to write about it, but decided she needed a higher education to do so. At fifty she enrolled in college and, five years later, graduated with a degree in Southwest Studies. In 1998, she received the prestigious Javits Fellowship to pursue her education. Since then Marie has written several books about the art and culture of the southwest, including a memoir about growing up in Santa Fe. This is her first mystery novel.
