Al Colby should never have agreed to smuggle the package from Chile to Peru. Now one manís dead, two beautiful women have betrayed him, and a couple of gunmen are hot on his trail. All because of an ancient Quechua manuscript pointing to the hiding place of a priceless hoard of gold, lost for centuries. Now the race is on — by train, by plane, by motorboat and by mule — first to find the treasure and then to escape with it alive...

  • First publication in 45 years!
  • From the bestselling author of TO CATCH A THIEF, which became the classic Hitchcock movie (now being remade by Paramount Pictures)
