The thrilling international bestseller from Australia's favourite novelist, Matthew Reilly, author of The Tournament and Ice Station
"The action just keeps on coming ... Michael Crichton meets Indiana Jones." Kirkus Reviews
Deep in the jungle of Peru, the hunt for a legendary Incan idol is under way - an idol that in the present day could be used as the basis for a terrifying new weapon.
Guiding a US Army team is Professor William Race, a young linguist who must translate an ancient manuscript which contains the location of the idol.
What they find is an ominous stone temple, sealed tight. They open it - and soon discover that some doors are meant to remain unopened...
"Reilly has a gift for sustaining momentum that never lets up." Publishers Weekly
"Compared to Matthew Reilly's Temple and his intrepid academic hero, Professor William Race, Indiana Jones is a wimp and The Raiders of The Lost Ark a snooze fest. Reilly's book has adrenaline in super-sized quantities." The Orlando Sentinel
Fans of Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton will love Matthew Reilly.
