on an island in an inland sea. There, an ancient Andean
people hid a golden hoard greater than that of any pharaoh,
then they and their treasure vanished into history -- until now.
1998, the Andes Mountains of Peru. DIRK PITT dives into an
ancient sacrificial pool, saving two American archaeologists
from certain drowning. But his death-defying rescue is only
the beginning, as it draws the intrepid Pitt into a vortex of
darkness and danger, corruption and betrayal. A sinister crime
syndicate has traced the long-lost treasure -- worth almost a
billion dollars -- from the Andes to the banks of a hidden
underground river flowing beneath a Mexican desert. Driven
by burning greed and a ruthless bloodlust, the syndicate is
racing to seize the golden prize...and to terminate the one
man who can stop them.
