Deep in the jungles of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is underway - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon.

I thought this would be ideal for a night in work, trashy thriller typewith little need to concentrate too much but sadly it didnt hit those heights, it is basically an action comic book, poor plodding plot with a hero so lucky he needs to forget his current job and take up buying lottery tickets for a living, left unfinished as the fairly obvious "twists" and incessantly similar prose left me disinterested in the characters and the story. Essentially a substandard dan brown novel (if such a thing were possible)
