Overview

When New York network television cameraman ANDY COOPER is dragooned from his cushy Sports Division berth to shoot a National Geographic special about the billion dollar treasures of El Dorado at a secret lake in the Andes, he becomes the professional target for head-hunting natives, deadly jaguars, anacondas and alligators and most of all, the treacherous human killers within the expedition including the beautiful but double-dealing Celia.
Within these pages, every moment is a life-or-death struggle in an environment moldering with deadly diseases, man-eating natives and animals, cannibal ants, killer insects and reptiles, pitfall snare traps and curare-tipped tree branches, poisoned food, cut air hoses,sabotaged SCUBA tanks, runaway underwater vacuums, out of control high pressure underwater hoses, plus the deadly April 9th revolutionary movement determined to seize all the treasures to finance the revolution by slaying everyone involved in the El Dorado project.
It is, most importantly, the story of ANDY COOPER, a totally-dimensional yet highly-identifiable American journalist whose instinct for the story behind the story and imaginative strategies for survival not only help him uncover the centuries-old mysteries of El Dorado but reward him with the extraordinary personal and financial rewards to become the final winner-take-all.

Everyone loves a good adventure, right? There aren’t many people out there that didn’t watch Indiana Jones and wish, just a little bit, that they could swing from ropes in cavernous underground mines and stumble across Aztec gold in the far reaches of an ancient burial site. Yup, there’s a little bit of adventure in all of us, whether you like to admit it or not. And if you do admit it, then this book is most definitely for you. ‘Run & Gun’ is by acclaimed author Terry Galanoy. Now this guy’s re

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 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 by a beautiful but treacherous female museum curator.

    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.
