THE RETURN TO THE LOST EL DORADO
BOOK II OF THE LOST EL DORADO SERIES
It's now one year later.
The Archaeologist from U.C. Berkeley, is onsite and exploring gold caves and tunnels which had been abandoned many centuries earlier. Some actually dive deep under the mighty Amazon River and may contain more gold than they imagined. Unfortunately, he is facing resistance from the local natives who are beginning to resent his presence and are growing more and more aggressive. He has also heard the rumblings deep in the caverns he has been exploring. Because he knows he is on borrowed time, he is rushing his explorations, risking a cave in and certain death due to the nearness of the river above his head.
The Tribal leader's infant son, has come down with a rare disease that is fatal unless a medication is found and also a doctor who can deliver it on time. Because his condition is growing graver by the day, only the speedy PT boat can get them to the boy in time.
The PT boat's skipper is a hardened warrior from both Vietnam and many years working on the dangerous Amazon. Normally he could deliver the doctor and the necessary medication without a problem. What he doesn't know is that a former enemy, heavily financed by a woman, also from his past is sending deadly people to not only stop him, but to also kill him.
Their motivation? Not only the hoards of gold already in the village of golden buildings, but also the vast undiscovered gold they know is waiting for them once they get there and take over.
There is a girl/woman/child, who is also out to stop the skipper for reasons of her own. She knows witchcraft, magic, voodoo and is said not to be of this earth. Before she is through, the skipper will know fear, even greater than he faced in Vietnam.
