"FALLEN IDOLS is a compelling story, taut, moving, and wonderfully told." -Robert Parker Bestselling author J. F. Freedman has written an evocative family drama about three brothers investigating whether their father may have had a role in their mother's murder. Prominent archaeologists Walt and Jocelyn Gaines had just completed the latest phase of excavation of a fabulous Mayan ruin when they were waylaid by bandits. In the skirmish, Jocelyn was fatally wounded. The couple's three sons, Clancy, Tom, and Will, are devastated, but the loss is compounded when their father suddenly cuts off all contact without explanation. Together, the trio attempt to reconstruct what happened, and discover their father living a life of surprising affluence with a mysterious young girlfriend. The brothers explore every corner of their parents' lives and eventually end up in Central America to confront their mother's killer. But just when they know enough to suspect the worst, they discover that the truth is actually much more complex than they could have imagined.
