Poor for Maclean, but still not a bad read.
on 12 June 2013
Not his greatest book by a long shot, but a fairly short and easy read.
The books starts with Nazi's looting a monestary towards the end of the war. Two officers who are in charge make off with the g0ods but one is deceived by his partner and left behind.
Fast forward a number of years and we meet Hamilton, an expert in the amazonian jungles and all round adventurer. He is hired by a multi millionaire called 'Smith' to locate a lost city. Expect plenty of action with hostile tribes, animals and nazis.
As usual with Maclean you can expect a number of twists and turns, although many are easy to work out in this novel.
Worth a read but try some of his other works first.
