“The Coatzacoalcos River. They started excavations for waterworks there in 2008 and came across some artifacts.

I really like the dialogue exchange. Your character’s confidence comes through loud and clear.
An intriguing scene, especially the last sentence!
I am intrigued! Nice job of throwing a couple of hooks in there. Travis. 🙂
There’s definitely something there that someone doesn’t want them to find. Will they get to it in time?
Ooo, quite the mystery. Psycho millionaires are not people to brush off lightly. Great snippet!
