Tiernay Markowitz, pseudonym Tiernay West, is an adventurer. She moves with the stealth of a great cat of the African plains and can track a bicycle on dry pavement.

When Tiernay catches wind of possible buried treasure in her very own town, she's on the case. Little does she know where this will lead--was running for her life, scaling cliffs in the middle of the night, or getting trapped underground really part of the plan?
