While traveling on a local bus in Chinchero, Peru, Arla is approached by a mysterious female peddler who shows her a small, silver warrior. The statue is identical to those found only in rare Inca tombs located high in the Andes. Arla suspects this is a genuine artifact, perhaps stolen from the same Capacocha burial site her co-worker, Lance Hayden, is seeking. When the woman tells her she has many more items for sale, Arla follows her to an abandoned house. Too late, Arla realizes she has fallen into a trap!

Arla gets kidnapped by a group of ruthless thieves who are holding Lance Hayden hostage. They believe Arla's in possession of a journal, which is the final link to the Lost City and the secret it holds. A race against time takes Arla to a snowy mountain peak and a clash with the looters for the most priceless treasure of all - the golden condor!

Ha, yes! I gave up when Arla was talking to the random cop about Ted Langston, without explaining who he was. Didn’t get too far really.


message 32: by Karen (new)

Karen | 588 comments I wasn't encouraged when I couldn't find the book in my really large library system, but you shouldn't feel bad - this is a travel discussion group and you (both) learned a lot about Cuzco and Incan culture! I was to Peru, Cuzco, and Machu Picchu a few years ago - fabulous trip! I didn't find any lost cities though. Or condors. And I wasn't wild about Lima.


message 33: by Karen (new)

Karen | 588 comments Not to mention it got a 4.29 rating on GR! Who wouldn't think it was a good book?


message 34: by Jan, Moderator (new)

Jan | 14230 comments You are right Karen - I did learn something and the book did a good job of describing the area. I just wished it lived up to that rating...lol.
