Greetings from the dead, declares Maxwell Broadbent on the videotape he left behind after his mysterious disappearance. A notorious treasure hunter and tomb raider, Broadbent accumulated over half a billion dollars' worth of priceless art, gems, and artifacts before vanishing, along with his entire collection, from his mansion in New Mexico.

At first, robbery is suspected, but the truth proves stranger: as a final challenge to his three sons, Broadbent has buried himself and his treasure somewhere in the world, hidden away like an ancient Egyptian pharaoh. If the sons wish to claim their fabulous inheritance, they must find their father's carefully concealed tomb.

The race is on, but the three brothers are not the only ones competing for the treasure. With half a billion dollars at stake, as well as an ancient Mayan codex that may hold a cure for cancer and other deadly diseases, others soon join the hunt; and some of them will stop at nothing to claim the grave goods.

The best-selling coauthor of such page-turning thrillers as Relic and The Cabinet of Curiosities, Douglas Preston now spins an unforgettable tale of greed, adventure, and betrayal.

    " I could hardly make it past two chapters before I gave up. Everything was too forced and predictable - simple characters. I'm glad I got the book from the library instead of buying it. "

    " I loved this book. I couldn't believe I was so excited about people trudging through swamp and mountains to find an ancient Mayan text. Mr. Preston made it so exciting and interesting. I couldn't put the book down. You just never knew what was coming next. Who will live? Who will die? Will anybody die? Will they make it? Will they find the Codex? I recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure. "

    " I enjoyed this book. It was easy but kept a good pace and was a subject matter that interested me. If nothing else, get it on tape and listen to it on your commute. "
