    Synopsis

    Deep in the jungle of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is under way - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon.Guiding a US Army team 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... "The action, punctuated by regular bursts of superhuman feats and other absurdities, careens along at a breakneck pace. Australian Reilly has a gift for sustaining momentum that never lets up."  Publishers Weekly"As good as it gets when it comes to action thrillers...brilliant."  The Charleston Post & Courier"The action just keeps on coming...Michael Crichton meets Indiana Jones."  Kirkus Reviews
