I've posted here before and the full MS is currently with two agents. But I don't want to put all my eggs in those baskets, so I want to send out some more queries. Here it is. All critiques will be returned.
After fighting off a would-be assassin in Kiev, American archaeologist Cristina Smythe is sure her estranged husband ordered the hit. He’s the top military advisor to the Ukrainian President and needs a divorce so he can marry the mother of his newborn child. Cristina’s been delaying their final breakup, hoping he’ll come back.
With her attacker on the loose, she panics every time she leaves home and finds escape as anonymous Moderator 3 in an online chat room. That is, until her rival excavates a murdered woman in an ancient grave. Finding out who killed her could solve one of humanity’s greatest mysteries. It could also destroy Cristina’s research on the prehistoric origins of horseback riding.
Soon, a chat room member sends emails written in the first horsemen’s language to Moderator 3. Cristina can’t read the words. But she realizes the mysterious sender knows her real identity. Suspecting the messages are clues to the attempt on her life, she searches for a rare book to translate them. But then she uncovers shocking facts about her rival’s discovery that lead her into a global conspiracy. To expose it, Cristina must confront her fears—or remain their prisoner.
