The Clovis Dig

When a shocking discovery is found among the primeval relics at a dig site, an investigation of a different kind begins, as Claire Courtney tries desperately to salvage what’s left of the orchard and her life.

“Given the sheer volume of literature produced each year, it can sometimes be hard to find true works of such striking excellence as this tiny gem of a book... The voices that spring out of every page seem to come from the mist of time and the furthest reaches of the human experience... The book has some of the most creative and fully fleshed-out characters in modern fiction.” ~ US Review of Books, RECOMMENDED

Amidst the beauty of the Wenatchee Valley at the feet of the Cascade Mountains, orchardist Claire Courtney struggles to make a living from her apple orchard. It’s the late eighties, and an environmental health scare over a chemical used in apple production has dropped the bottom out of the market.

When strange and ancient artifacts are discovered beneath her orchard, Claire wonders whether the ensuing architectural dig will bring her the funds she so desperately needs, or force her to lose the home and livelihood that has been in her family for generations. An antagonistic relationship between the archaeologists on the dig—Joe Running from the west, and Spencer Grant from the east—threaten the entire project.

“Fink has impressive command over the many swirling elements of her well-plotted novel... The characterizations are strong, but the author has the ability to make the unique setting as important as the people. Archaeology and murder mix in this smart, picturesque novel that’s steeped in local culture.” ~ Kirkus Reviews (Our Verdict: GET IT)

Endorsements

“Fink has impressive command over the many swirling elements of her well-plotted novel, from the stresses of an agricultural business to the politics of academic power plays. Crucial to the story is Joe Running, a finely drawn young archaeologist who contextualizes the novel’s events in a marked way, especially as things take a darker turn. The characterizations are strong, but the author has the ability to make the unique setting as important as the people. Archaeology and murder mix in this smart, picturesque novel that’s steeped in local culture.”

“Given the sheer volume of literature produced each year, it can sometimes be hard to find true works of such striking excellence as this tiny gem of a book... There is a transformational quality about the author’s text. The voices that spring out of every page seem to come from the mist of time and the furthest reaches of the human experience. It is effortless for the reader to be transported in this richly created literary world. One sees as the curtain slowly falls even more as the author spins a complex web of secrets and revelations that keep the audience engaged throughout. The book has some of the most creative and fully fleshed-out characters in modern fiction. The novel’s narrative is both nuanced and breezy, and its visuals are compelling and revealing. In short, this is a wonderful and engaging literary experience that can’t fail to bring one enjoyment.”
