2 ½ stars. Mixed feelings. Not as good as the author’s other books.

I first read this in 2007 and really liked it. In 2015 I read it again and skimmed a lot. In 2017 I bought the audiobook and again it was not as good as the first time.

I did not care about the big misunderstanding.

American female archaeologist has a coded map showing the way to an ancient civilization in the Amazon jungle. Her brother arranges for a wealthy drug dealer to fund the expedition. They hire a guide. She and the guide eventually fall in love. The drug dealer brings along a hit man with plans to kill everyone after they obtain the valuable red diamond.

Tanya Eby Sirois was good. She has a slight lisp which comes out at times.

Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: 309 pages. Swearing language: moderate plus s*** and religious swear words but rarely used. Sexual language: moderate. Number of sex scenes: eight. Setting: current day mostly Brazil. Copyright: 1993. Genre: contemporary romance adventure.
