The Ardis Cole Series is written by sisters, Vickie Britton and Loretta Jackson. Archaeologist Ardis Cole travels to exotic lands to solve crimes. Each Ardis Cole mystery is a story within a story, one dealing with an intrigue in the present, the other dealing with a mystery, murder, or love triangle from the ancient past. Each book in The Ardis Cole Series takes place in locations around the world. The authors have traveled to such places as Peru, Russia, Egypt, China, and Australia in preparation for this series.
All books in The Ardis Cole Series are standalones with a complete mystery and resolution in each novel. You don’t have to have to read them in order. So, feel free to start with Book 1, or jump into the middle and find a story or setting that personally interests you. All books are available in softcover and ebook.
Nice thrills and chills! The authors have obviously done their archeological homework. —Mystery Scene Magazine
