Jeremy Wheale's well-ordered life is blasted apart when his brother is murdered by a mob hit-man. The killer's bait was a family heirloom, an antique gold tray. The trail takes Wheale from Devon to Mexico - and the wild tropical rain forests of Yucatan.
Here in dense jungle, he helps two archaeologists look for the rest of a fabled hoard of gold - treasure from Uaxuanoc, centuries-old lost city of the Mayas.
But his brother's enemies are on Wheale's trail, massing silently in the jungle. And with them are the Chicleros, a vicious band of convict mercenaries...
