An archaeological dig inthieves.
Mexico leads to some fascinating
circumstances. A group of entomologists
and archaeologists fall afoul of competing archaeological
The setting in a Mexican jungle seems appropriate for the Indiana Jones type of thriller. Complacent archaeologists discover that the real world has substantially more interest in their finds than they expected. The story starts with a bang and continues rolling with gods, monsters, musclemen, thugs and innocents.
The mysterious gods are a surprising protagonist but nevertheless entertaining. Tongue in cheek doesn't begin to describe it. One set of competing thugs seems stereo-typically evil while the other set exhibits Robin Hoodish symptoms.
The action really is non-stop and powers the book through some moments of disbelief. The ending provides the hoped for surprise.
I recommend the book.
