When Professor Malcolm Watters makes a sensational archaeological find in Cuzco, he unleashes a storm of academic controversy that threatens to sink his career. Worse, he and his team find their lives threatened by someone who wants that artifact and has taken the name of Viracocha, the living god of the Inca Empire. Professor Watters turns to his ex-student and ex-lover Angelina Schuyler for help. But when the professor is found dead in his office, Angelina calls for help from the only man who can unravel this mystery, save the innocent and punish the guilty...Doctor Zachariah Schull!

What ensues is an exciting tale of adventure, action, suspense and romance as the Doctor and Angelina unravel a plot that spans the entire continent, a conspiracy that takes them from the Doctor's secret lab overlooking Lake Tahoe to a final confrontation between Doctor Schull and Viracocha in the secret caverns under the ruins of Macchu Picchu. From a deadly nighttime knife fight in the San Francisco morgue to a brutal terrorist attack in Lima, the action never stops as heroes and villains race to control the secret Professor Watters uncovered. Because the secret of the artifact, the Simi Willka Viracocha, is so great that it will shake the foundations of history itself and bring back an era of bloodthirsty tyranny that threatens to destroy our civilization.

About the Author

A.A. Castro, a California native, grew up in three states and three different countries, including Lima, Peru. As a child he always had his nose in a book with his favorites being English or Spanish books on history or Science Fiction.

He has a Bachelors of Science Degree in Computer Programming, and worked for more than 17 years in information technology for several major companies. He currently runs a computer consulting firm, but much prefers to spend his time writing and reading. He's been happily married since 1995 and is father figure to his little dog Fred.

When asked why he chose to base his first novel in such an exotic locale as the Inca Empire, Mr. Castro replied "It's a great setting that has been neglected by too many writers. My family is from Lima, Peru and I lived there as a child. I grew up learning all about the Inca Empire. Ever since my wife and I visited Machu Pichu and Huaca Pucllana in 2005, I have always wanted to write a story where I could use the mystery and intrigue surrounding both of these sites."
