Acclaimed for his evocative settings and gripping suspense, CBA best-selling author Athol Dickson won his third Christy Award for Lost Mission. Among the dirt-poor barrios and ultra-wealthy enclaves lining the hills of southern California, new construction unearths a long-lost Spanish mission. This discovery sets off a chain of events that presents four unrelated people with difficult choices. In each case, a greater good can be served by compromising a basic moral value-risking the same fate that left the mission buried and forgotten for 250 years.
