At the bottom of a lake lies an ancient cache worth killing for... 

The note from her friend and colleague had read "I have quite the monster for you to chase, dear Annja." And then before she could speak to him, he'd been found dead in the hotel's stairwell. It didn't seemed possible. Annja Creed had been looking forward to three days of geeking out at the archaeology conference in Madison, Wisconsin, and then this tragedy strikes. And his is only the first death over the long weekend. 

Determined to investigate her friend's death--and find out why another colleague she trusts is arrested as the prime suspect--Annja starts gathering the pieces of a cryptic puzzle. A small collection of Mayan gold medallions. The death of a potter. The violent appearance of a teenaged girl with a strange green knife. And at the center of the puzzle, an ancient mound pyramid purportedly hidden at the bottom of a Wisconsin lake. That's a discovery that could completely rewrite Mesoamerican history. 

With each puzzle piece Annja Creed discovers, the mystery grows more dangerous. And what she knows can--and probably will--kill her.

This story, the 46th installment in the series and the 9th book for me, was significantly better than the other 8 I have read. As I have stated in other reviews of this series, Alex Archer is a pen name for a collection of several authors that the publisher uses for the Rogue Angel series. The true author for each book is mentioned inside the front cover on the copyright page but nowhere else. This book, "Sunken Pyramid" was written by Jean Rabe, who has penned only 3 others in the series.
I found this book more readable, the descriptions better, the character portrayals more clearly written, a little more gritty and done in a way that captured the humanity, both good and bad, especially well of each of the characters, especially of the 3 primary characters, Annya, Garin and Roux.

My appreciation for the quality of the writing of this story was especially keen because I had just read no. 43 in the series, "Clockwork Doomsday" which I found to be especially lacking in charm and likeability.

To compare, I would give Clockwork Doomsday a 2.5 and I gave Sunken Pyramid a 3.5.
I am wondering how far the publisher intends to take the series. No. 49 has been announced but no farther than that. Perhaps they will end at 50, or maybe they will continue on indefinitely to 60, 70 and beyond. Whatever they do, I would dearly love to get more insight into the background of the 3 primary characters and especially of Garin and Roux.
