About the story.... 'The Luck of the Maya’ is an adventure with science fiction overtones and even a love interest. It takes place partly in the Petén jungle of southern México, partly in Houston and Austin with side trips to Chicago and New York and occasionally Las Vegas.
The story is told from the perspective of 2017 and set mostly in the late 1970s, the important target date is December 21, 2012—the end of the 5126 year long-count cycle of the ancient Mayan Calendar—when unusual things have been predicted to happen.
There are Mayan Elders, gangsters, unpredictable hillbillies, an incredibly beautiful and highly trained Mayan operative, shrimp boats, treks through the jungle, death, and some weddings.
