X is for The Xibalba Murders . . . and X (#AtoZChallenge)

The A to Z Challenge is a daily meme posting every day (except Sundays) in April. Check out the list of 1500+ participants below and follow along for 26 days (and 26 letters) of fun. The 2-letter code after each blog name may help narrow your choices - (BO) is Books, (WR) is Writing, (PH) is Photography . . . and, if you're concerned about those NSFW pages, (AC) is Adult Content.

For my theme, I'm going with a little author/title alliteration.

Today's challenge post is brought to you by the letter X, as in The Xibalba Murders. Okay, so this is the second time this week (and third overall) that my theme failed me but, come on, it's the letter X! This first book in Lyn Hamilton's Archaeological Mysteries series appeals to me on several levels . . . but it's still sitting in the to-be-read pile. Hopefully I can rectify that someday soon and give my fellow Canuck a read.

The musical accompaniment for the day comes to us courtesy of X, the eighth studio album from Def Leppard. Marking a significant departure from the sound of the Slang album (which I see to be one of the few DL fans to truly enjoy), this one really kick-started their career resurgence, even though it only had one real hit.
