Feathered Serpents (Volume 1) by Joyce Keller Walsh
When detective Sebastian Calderón moves from Arizona to Cape Cod to become Chief of Police, he is bored and unchallenged. But his routine is soon shaken when an opera diva’s “pet” anaconda attacks her and he encounters multiple murders in a realm of transgenic research and mysticism, with links to his ancient Toltec past.

Tezcatlipoca: The Smoking Mirror (Feathered Serpents Volume 2) by Joyce Keller Walsh
Police Chief Sebastian Calderón has left Cape Cod for Mexico to track the fugitive bioengineers of an illegal Quetzalcoatl. His only source of information is the mysterious Tezca, a woman he doesn’t trust.
During his investigation, he is ambushed, rendered unconscious, and awakens to find himself trapped in a stone chamber. No one knows where he is, neither his daughter in Paris, nor his Deputy back home—who is pursuing a lead that will take him to a fateful outcome.
There is no way out of the tomb and Calderón suspects it was Tezca who put him there to die.
