Publisher's Summary

It's a race to locate a legendary Incan idol: one carved out of a strange kind of stone. But a stone which, in the present age, could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon. The US Army wants this prize at any cost. But they are not alone. The only clue to the idol's final resting place is to be found in a 400-year-old manuscript - which introduces Professor William Race, a mild-mannered but brilliant young linguist, who is unwillingly recruited to interpret the document that could lead the US team to the idol itself. So begins the mission that will lead Race and his armed companions to a mysterious stone temple hidden in the foothills of the Andes. This is a carefully contrived sanctuary seething with menace and unexpected dangers. But it is not until the silence of the temple is breached that Race and his team discover they have broken a golden rule....Some doors are meant to remain unopened.

A boys book

I bought this book because it was read by Steven Pacey who I really enjoy listening to and it seemed a mystery book.

There is a little mystery but it is engulfed by bishy bashy boys talk about gun numbers and people being blown up by 100 different ways. It reads like a boys picture comic.
