After receiving a cryptic phone call from Dr. Hernan Castillo, an expert in Mayan history, Lara travels to Merida, Mexico to help him with a mysterious project he has undertaken. But on arriving in Merida, Lara sees no sign of the good doctor - until his lifeless body turns up in his office at the museum. Retracing the doctor's recent footsteps, she is drawn into the jungle surrounding Merida. For in this lush paradise are the temples of Mayan gods - and the camps of modern-day rebels fighting to save their Mayan heritage. As the body count escalates, Lara must uncover the secrets of the Mayan underworld known as Xibalba - and journey into the very heart of darkness...
