High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin's nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown. But where the perilous journey inward ends—in the cold, shrouded heart of a breathtaking necropolis—something else is waiting for Sam Conklin and his exploratory party. A thing created by Man, yet not humanly possible. Something wondrous . . . something terrifying.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A real page-turner…Rollins keeps the story in overdrive, with plenty of twists and turns before the final shocker.”

    Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling author

  • “The action moves quickly from cliffhanger to cliffhanger, and no adventure fan could think of putting it down.”

    Tampa Tribune

  • “It’s something of an insult to characterize novelist James Rollins as a cross between Clive Cussler and Dan Brown as some have done, since his work has considerably more depth and range than either of his fellow thriller writers…Rollins delivers.”

    Charleston Post and Courier

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Joe Peters | 2/17/2014

    " The ending was extremely disappointing. If there had been a plausible scientific explanation at the end of the book, I would've given it 4 stars. But, in the last chapter, it seemed like Rollins was out of ideas and fell back on a lame, cop-out ending (it was all the aliens!!!). DUH? What the . . .? It made me SO mad that I had wasted all the time reading the book. I wish I could say it was worthwhile. I definitely do *not* recommend. There are far better adventures out there. "

    " My favorite character died 1/3 through the book. It just wasn't the same after that. "

    " I loved this book! It really creeped me out at some points! This is definetly a good read! "
