Yes, it is Thriller Thursday again and I have to say, I am reading a pretty good thriller now. So far it isn’t dragging in the least and has kept me interested in what happens next. I do hope it will continue to do so. The book is:
High in the Andes, Dr. Henry Conklin discovers a 500-year-old mummy that should not be there. While deep in the South American jungle, Conklin’s nephew, Sam, stumbles upon a remarkable site nestled between two towering peaks, a place hidden from human eyes for thousands of years. Ingenious traps have been laid to ensnare the careless and unsuspecting, and wealth beyond imagining could be the reward for those with the courage to face the terrible unknown. But where the perilous journey inward ends–in the cold, shrouded heart of a breathtaking necropolis–something else is waiting for Sam Conklin and his exploratory party. A thing created by Man, yet not humanly possible. Something wondrous . . . something terrifying.
The archeology students have found the tomb door buried 50 ft beneath the surface and are trying to understand the enscription written there. Thieves come in the night to plunder the riches supposedly inside but soon find riches aren’t all that great if you aren’t around to spend it. What is the value a person puts on their life? How greedy would they be if they knew there was a very good chance they’d never see the sun again?
