Can a romance save the world? Maybe this one could.

In 1939, James Fleming, the original British secret agent, races on a high-stakes mission to track down the lost Incan treasure of King Huascar. Along with Kate Rhodes, a policewoman on leave from Ohio, he decodes clues and faces the challenges of the Chakana designed to allow only the most devoted to escape alive.

Among the ancient ruins of Peru, disaster hides around each corner as they battle Incan death traps and an international artifact smuggler who will do anything to acquire the hidden wealth. If James and Kate fail, the Nazi's Third Reich could win WWII and take over the world. Intrigue, danger, adventure, and even romance abound in this quest to save the free world.

I loved, loved, loved this book! There is nothing about this book I would change; the opening, the character development, the plot, the imagery, and all the settings! I loved the good guys, and hated the bad guys. I really enjoyed the way I was brought into the adventures of the movie; even though I couldn’t put it down, and missed a lot of sleep. The ending was perfect. I look forward to reading more of James and Kate’s adventures! This was definitely a smooth and quick read. Even the editing was great; I found only ONE mistake, the use of the work quiet, instead of quite, which means it was a typo. This rating is a HUGE 5 boundless stars! P.S. I love that Lawrence chose to set Chakana in Ohio at the beginning, and even more that Ohio University was included. Go Bobcats! The fact that I’m alumni didn’t affect this review at all, it was just an awesome plus to an already perfect book....Beth

Full of action, adventure, mystery and romance. Ranks right up there with James Bond and Indiana Jones.

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite The time is 1940. Nick Rhodes is an archaeologist working on a dig in Peru when he finds a very special Inca treasure. Nick knows that this treasure is sought after for evil purposes and he immediately sends it to his sister, Kate, at home in America. Kate is a policewoman working for her father and not happy with the restrictions he puts on her. The treasure is the perfect way to get out from under his controlling hand. Kate goes to see a college professor, Dr. Charlie (who is also an archaeologist), and together the two must travel to Peru and help Nick who may be in trouble because of his discovery. When they arrive, Nick and his team are missing and no one in the village wants to talk about it. Enter James Fleming, a British secret agent and very old friend of Kate's. Can he help? Chakana by W.E. Lawrence is a romantic historical adventure that is impossible to put down. Chakana has all the adventure and excitement that will keep you on the edge of your chair and reading late into the night. W.E. Lawrence knows how to keep the suspense, romance, adventure and mystery alive on every page. If you like Indiana Jones, you will love Chakana. I don’t think anyone will be disappointed when reading this book - it is a five star plus winner.
