Publisher's Summary

Deep in the jungles of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is underway - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon. Guiding a US Army is Professor William Race, a young linguist who must translate an ancient manuscript which contains the location of the idol. What they find is an ominous stone temple, sealed tight. They open it - and soon discover that some doors are meant to remain unopened.

Really enjoyed this book. It mixed the Da Vinci Code with Map of Bones. Don't want to spoil it for anyone but I couldn't stop listening to it. I ended up sitting in the car at work till the last minute just so I could listen for as long as possible. Lots of twists and turns which kept you interested but not so indepth that if you missed a couple of minutes you lost the plot.

Fast paced through the ages

Any additional comments?

I loved this (okay I do love all Matthew Riley books) I had it on cassettes but soon found myself wondering how much of the story I was missing, so was so pleased to find audible selling the unabridged version. So I just had to get it.

love the fact that you have 2 stories running parallel with each other. The way one moment it is high Tec guns and then it is bows and arrows but as one time line has an effect on one story it also helps the hero in the other. Very cleverly crafted story, with lots happening in both line lines. An audiobook you can listen to again and again.
