CAN JAKE LALONDE WALK THE REALMS OF THE LIVING AND THE DEAD AT THE SAME TIME? AND CAN HIS FIANCEE STOP HIM BEFORE HE FINDS OUT...?Haida archaeologist Jake Lalonde dreams the same dreams as his ancestors, and his profession has taken him to strange and fascinating places before. When the corpse of a colleague and friend, Vincent Carpello, appears in the back of a freight truck, however--his stiff hands miming the form of a raven rattle--Jake's thirst for adventure sets him on a dangerous journey that may just be his last.

At the University of Washington, a team of researchers that include Jake's fiancée, Angeline Lisbon, know that Jake's now deceased colleague, Vincent Carpello, was on the cusp of a major discovery that had the potential to turn the world upside down. But when a Venus statue is stolen, Jake goes missing, and a cypher disappears, Angeline sets out to find Jake--Interpol's number one suspect. Tracked by a dubious Interpol agent, Angeline follows the clues that soon lead her to a raven-worshipping goddess cult in the subterranean Mithraic temples of Rome.

In this supernatural archaeological thriller, the shadow of a shaman must help Jake find his way back to the only world he knows so he can save both himself and Angeline--before it is too late.

Archaeologist and museologist Deborah Cannon was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. Her love of the Pacific landscape and of the Northwest Coast Native myths inspired much of her fiction. She writes articles on "Writing Bestsellers" for Suite101.com and is published by Simon Fraser Univerity's Archaeology Press, the Canadian Journal of Archaeology, and the Canadian Writer's Guide. Her fiction has appeared in Farsector SFFH in conjunction with Fictionwise.com. The Raven's Pool is her first novel. The sequel, White Raven will be released shortly. She lives in Hamilton Ontario with her archaeologist husband and two Shihpoos, Ming and Tang. In Memorium: The Raven's Pool began as a student project at the Humber School for Writers. In January 1998, I contacted Joanne Kellock, a literary agent in Edmonton, Alberta. The novel, she said, needed work and if I did the work, she would read it again. She read it and helped revise the manuscript a total of 6 times over a period of five years. In October 2002, she offered me representation in a 3 year contract. She submitted the novel to HarperCollins and New American Library; both declined. She died of cancer in November, 2003 before the novel was sold. I have published it with Trafford in her memory.
