Santrauka: Deep in the jungles of Peru the contest of the century is underway. It's a race to locate a legendary Incan idol- one carved out of a strange kind of stone which could be used as the basis for a new weapon. The US Army wants this prize at any cost. But they are not alone. The only clue to the idol's place of finding is to be found in a 400-year-old manuscript. Which introduces Professor William Race, a brilliant young linguist, who is unwillingly recruited to interpret the document. So begins the mission that will lead William and his armed companions to a mysterious stone temple hidden in the foothills of the Andes. A sanctuary seething with menace and unexpected dangers.
