Treasure, Adventure, Danger, History, Sex! A Great Read!,
By Prof. H.B. (Stanford, CA) -
Terry Galanoy is a master at weaving an intricate plot at warp speed. It seems that the Spanish didn't get all the Aztec gold. The Indians dumped tons of it in a lake for safekeeping, and the challenge is to bring it to the surface. All of this is to be captured by an American TV cameraman, but he's forced to become a reluctant participant. The cast also includes an U.S. Navy diving specialist, the pilot of a third-hand helicopter, and a museum director, among others. Then of course, there is the lithe, gorgeous, and seductive Mestizo antiquities specialist, who is not quite what she seems...but neither is anyone else. This is a fast-paced topical tale, brimming with adventure, suspense, plot twists, and surprises. It's a sure candidate for an action-adventure movie.
