The Lost CityBook - 2008 | 1st American ed.
Jackson Small has just been discharged from the British military after witnessing the violent battlefield death of his closest friend, Connolly. It was Connolly who introduced him to the fascinations of ancient civilizations, enticing him with stories of La Joya, the capital of a vanished Peruvian empire. Coping with his grief, Jackson sets off in search of the city, hidden in the cloud forest hanging between the Andes and Amazonia. He lets nothing stop him from entering the depths of the forest believed to protect the ruins of the lost city--where he will encounter other seekers whose methods are far more sinister than his own.
