The Death Relic
by Chris Kuzneski
This is an action packed thriller featuring ex-special forces operatives Jonathon Payne and David Jones. In this book these wise-cracking friends help out David's former girlfriend, Maria Pelati. Maria has been offered a dream job working with renowned anthropologist Terrance Hamilton. He wants her to come to Mexico to help him find a Mayan artifact. Maria is puzzled by his offer because her area of expertise is Christianity, not Mesoamerica. But the chance to work with Hamilton is alluring so she flies to Cancun to meet with him. During their meeting Hamilton excuses himself to get some papers from his vehicle but he never returns. When Maria goes back to her hotel room she finds that it has been searched and her passport stolen. She calls Payne and Jones for help. They jet off to the Yucatan Peninsula to find Hamilton. Kuzneski deftly weaves Mayan history into the plot. -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Nelson DeMille, Steve Berry and Clive Cussler.]
