About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

While vacationing in Belize, a trio of American archeologists pay a courtesy call on some colleagues excavating the ancient Mayan site of Caracol. During their visit a discovery is made which draws them into a search for a lost city deep in the jungles of Belize. Along the way they become captivated by the enigmatic culture of the Maya, a once mighty civilization that has mysteriously disappeared leaving only the towering remains of their temples as mute testimony to the nature of their past glory. Their quest to unearth the mysteries of the lost city leads them to not only learn more about the Maya, but also to learn more about themselves. In doing so they find a priceless treasure while simultaneously becoming the instruments by which the revenge of a long dead Mayan king is exacted.
