What I Thought:

This was a faced paced thriller that kept me turning pages. For me, it was interesting because it included archeology! I've always enjoyed that. Graham Brown seems to be an excellent new talent to watch. I'm looking forward to his next book in the series Black Sun.

About The Book:
(From Author's Website)

Far from the gleaming monuments of Washington D.C., talented and headstrong operative Danielle Laidlaw commands an American expedition into the darkest reaches of the Amazon. Their goal: a lost Mayan city that does not belong in the Amazon and find that could transform the very world. Leaning on the knowledge and wisdom of a troubled university professor named McCarter and protected by an ex-patriot American mercenary named Hawker, the team sets out with the truth hidden from them—they are replacements for a group that went out weeks before and was never heard from again.
Attacked by a ruthless competitor, threatened by a violent, indigenous tribe and stalked by an hidden enemy that leaves only battered corpses in its wake, the team fights for survival. Their only hope may lie in the connection between the deadly reality of the Mayan legend; the nomadic tribe that haunts them; and the chilling secret buried deep beneath the ancient ruins.But can they discover it in time?
