Maxwell Broadbent, former tomb-raider, leaves his sons a challenge. Soon to die, he means to be buried with the half-billion in art treasures he’s amassed over the years. If his sons want their inheritance, they have to find his tomb--and rob it. Most valuable is The Codex, an ancient Mayan text containing medical knowledge for the use of indigenous plants. Scott Brick gives a knockout performance as the Broadbents--accompanied by gorgeous, blonde archaeologist Sally Colorado--struggle with piranhas, anacondas, jaguars, mosquitoes, fever, a psycho mercenary, and mountain Indians. Brick handles mystery, romance, sibling rivalry, and genocide in the jungles of Honduras with dazzling style. Not since Indiana Jones played “race-the-boulder” have so many nail-biting, heart-pounding rushes occurred in one adventure. Great fun! S.J.H.
