Publisher's Summary

Deep in the jungles of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is underway - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon. Guiding a US Army is Professor William Race, a young linguist who must translate an ancient manuscript which contains the location of the idol. What they find is an ominous stone temple, sealed tight. They open it - and soon discover that some doors are meant to remain unopened.

Indiana Jones action story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I recommend this to anyone who loves a fast-paced Indiana Jones type adventure.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Temple?

William Race wrestling with the caimans (crocodiles). The rapas (big cats) are pretty cool as well.

Have you listened to any of Sean Mangan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Sean Mangan is an excellent narrator and has done brilliant job with the Matthew Reilly books I have listened to so far.

Thrill After Thrill

Loved Temple is a thrill after thrill set in Peru, we are introduced to William Rice as the main character. It's a fast paced action filled listen of good and evil forces and an idol. You can't beat Reilly for a great action story. Sean Mangan again is such a fantastic narrator he makes listening such a pleasure.

Really enjoyed this book. It mixed the Da Vinci Code with Map of Bones. Don't want to spoil it for anyone but I couldn't stop listening to it. I ended up sitting in the car at work till the last minute just so I could listen for as long as possible. Lots of twists and turns which kept you interested but not so indepth that if you missed a couple of minutes you lost the plot.

Fast paced through the ages

Any additional comments?

I loved this (okay I do love all Matthew Riley books) I had it on cassettes but soon found myself wondering how much of the story I was missing, so was so pleased to find audible selling the unabridged version. So I just had to get it.

love the fact that you have 2 stories running parallel with each other. The way one moment it is high Tec guns and then it is bows and arrows but as one time line has an effect on one story it also helps the hero in the other. Very cleverly crafted story, with lots happening in both line lines. An audiobook you can listen to again and again.

High action, and a bit brutal in parts

Read this on paper many years ago and enjoyed it more as I recall. I enjoy all of MRs books, but this one could have been bette, and a little less 'fantastic'. Set in South America for the most part, it puts a Languages Professor in some impossible situations, all of which he manages to get out of, where his special armed forces protectors seem to be dropping like nine pins.

Still, it's an action packed ride guaranteed to take you out of your own reality and transport you into adventures you'd never survive in the real world.....monkey-pee notwithstanding.

Buy it!
