Big-city lawyer Alice MacDonald Greer moves her office to the small town of Coffee Creek, in the heart of Texas Hill Country. As she is learning to enjoy the quirky residents, brusque, elderly rancher Ollie West walks into her office.

Ollie wants her to create a trust to protect prehistoric rock paintings on his ranch. Alice obliges, intrigued by the unexpected power of the ancient paintings.

When Ollie is murdered, Alice is determined to honor his wishes-in spite of his family. And what starts as a series of inept break-ins at Alice's office and ranch escalates into violence by an unknown adversary. Climbing the cliffs of Cloud Ranch once more to seek inspiration from the rock art, Alice finds herself not only fighting to vindicate Ollie, but fighting for her life.

The first of the Alice MacDonald Greer Mystery series, Ghost Cave plunges the reader into a world of ancient shamans and murderous greed. In the heart of Texas, the passion for land runs deep-sometimes dangerously so.
