Emilio's father was forced to abandon a prize emerald mine years ago in the South American jungles. Now, Emilo has found someone to finance his expedition to recover the treasure. ....Michael has agreed to provide the funds for the treasure hunt, on the contingency that he gets half the reward. His wife's spending has put him in need of the extra cash. When he goes down to help with the expedition, his teenaged daughter, Leigh, goes along. It is she who will find the true treasure, love, with Emilo's son. Their youthful passion is not without price; Leigh is left a pregnant thirteen year old who is very unready to be a mother. Her salvation comes when their Oriental servants are desperate for a child, and willing to give her newborn daughter a home. Thus, her plans for the future and her mother's social ambitions are not disturbed, at least not for a while. The story is far from ended. Years of passion, murder, and revenge ensue before the secrets that refuse to die will catch up with the players. ....***** In a novel that sweeps the reader as KING SOLOMON'S MINES or more modernly, Indiana Jones might, Ms. Anderson creates a plausible world. Adventure will hold the interest of any man who might read it, yet it has enough of a soap opera-ish flavor to capture a woman's fancy as well. *****Was this review helpful?
