A five-hundred-year-old legend. An ancient curse. A medical mystery. A journey into the unknown heart of the world's densest jungle and a stunning archaeological discovery.
'What reader could resist a new book by Douglas Preston called The Lost City of the Monkey God? Not this reader. Preston's book offers rewards for both the mystery fan and the nonfiction aficionado. The Lost City is addictive-fast-paced and riveting, but it's also important. We mustn't repeat the cataclysmic mistakes of the past. Ironically – as The Lost City illustrates – that's exactly what our short-sighted civilization is doing right now' James Patterson.
