THE CAMEL DRIVER

“He would have reported a tattoo on a cow’s derriere if he thought it would serve the archaeological glory of France.”

~ Anonymous

Krishtalka novels are an intellectual stew of history, science and murder with lots of well-penned pages featuring descriptions and depictions of Carnegie Museum, the city, the South Side and Homewood, among other locales..”

The Camel Driver

A world-famous museum diorama, Arab Courier Attacked by Lions, is vandalized in the middle of the night.

Przewalski is hired to uncover the macabre history of Arab Courier. Who is the camel driver— the Bedouin’s skull, skeleton and skin are mount- ed under his clothing?

Paleontologist turned private investigator Harry Przewalski excavates the dirty un- derbelly of people’s lives, unearthing sexual betrayals, treachery, fraud and murder buried beneath the science of petrified shards, skin and bones. Ultimately, he must face a brutal killing in his own past, when he fled to a desert war and came back with a gun and a license to detect.
