About the Author
Born Arthur Nichol but known as Tim by his many friends in his adopted hometown, San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico, the author of Mayan Gold was a British-born seaman who traveled the world on commercial vessels as well as his own boats. He had begun writing about his adventures and had drawn on several years’ research and experiences on the southeastern coast of Mexico to create a thriller based in the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico. A few short weeks after finishing the novel, Tim died New Year’s Eve, 2009, in a Hermosillo, Mexico hospital. But Mayan Gold will live on as an e-book published by Tim’s friends.

I'm going on a cruise this April and have been looking for fiction based in the western Caribean. This would be a perfect beach read. It is one of the few reads I've found based in Belize.... A light & lively mystery with plenty of local color & some history. Fast moving and not totally predictable.
