Publisher's Summary

Locals call it the Rio das Mortes - the treacherous Brazilian river where the Huna tribe is known to kill all who trespass. Despite the river’s deadly reputation, pilot Neil Mallory agrees to fly supplies to outposts there in hopes of making enough money to buy his passage back to England. But when he and fellow pilot Sam Hannah discover a field of massacred missionaries shot through with the Huna’s arrows, they decide to strike out along the River of Death to stage a daring rescue of the two nuns who are missing. Their mission draws them deep into the treacherous jungle, where a final violent showdown with the Huna leads to a fateful decision that will change their lives forever.

Extremely well written and fun!

I noticed several negative reveiws of this book and therefore was tempted not to get it. However, I so much enjoyed the first two books in the series I thought it was worth a chance. Glad I did! Fascinating story. Certainly not plagiarism...in fact refreshingly original. The references to Indiana Jones are tonque in cheek; and the author makes this clear. This is a book about treasure hunters, but not the old-fashioned kind of treasure hunters. The author is a great writer. The story moved along fast, never boring. The main characters are not your standard action heroes and that even makes it more interesting. I am ready and waiting for the next volume in the series!
