This is the first book in a new series. It features Gabriella Rose a recovery agent. But she is not a bounty hunter. She recovers lost/stolen items and investigates insurance fraud. Her recent case is personal. She is trying to find the Seal of Solomon. It is part of the Treasure of Lima. She has clues to it’s whereabouts from old family diaries. In trying to retrieve said diaries she has to break in to her old house. See she messed up by letting her ex-husband have the house. And she gets caught. So in the interest of all concerned he tags along on this treasure hunt. This story is full of history, humor and danger. They travel from South Carolina to Peru to New York City to Costa Rica to Peru to California and back to South Carolina. They are in competition for the treasure with a psychotic leader of a cult of the god of death. They are also helped along the way with a variety of colorful characters. I literally read this in a day. Well, with a little help from Audible. Lorelei King does an excellent job as narrator. She nails matching accents and voices to the characters. I highly recommend this book and I am looking forward to more.

This book kept me entertained once I started I couldn’t put it down until I finished it. I will have no problem buying the next one in the series when it becomes available.
This is truly a heart stopping adventure both for the characters and the reader. It involve a treasure hunt like no other while avoiding the crazed followers of an evil god. The adventure is centered around the Ring of Solomon which is being hunted by both the good and bad. My final advice is “buckle up”.
Janet has done it again! The Recovery Agent is an adventure that covered several places and like a map, each stopped uniquely different, yet tied together! I am looking forward to Gabriela and Rafer adventures!
One I picked up this book I could hardly put it down. The cast of characters are unique and interesting. The story is silly and dramatic and all the things a good story should be me. Can’t wait for the next adventure!
