When Harry Westhouse and his friends went in search of a place and a treasure lost to history on what they believed would be the adventure of their lives, he never for a moment thought that they would end up fighting just to stay alive . . . Ever since he was a small boy and his father told him a story about sighting ruins amongst the remote jungle of Burma whilst fighting there during World War II, Harry has dreamed of finding the place whose very existence was curiously denied by the indigenous population. Now an archaeologist against his father’s wishes, Harry’s research has led him to believe that the place his father saw could not only rewrite the history books of Burma, but could yield rich rewards for him and his friends that no one else even suspects exist. But the risks are high. Harry knows Burma is a country off limits to outsiders and that the Indian-Burmese border they must cross to reach their destination is a potential war zone. If they are to succeed, they must remain unseen, hidden in the jungle. Yet the jungle is not as deserted as they had hoped. Very quickly disturbing occurrences show them that they are not alone, and events see them separated and running for their lives as they become witnesses to murder. Meeting a foe they could never have anticipated, they must fight for each other to survive as the past and the present collide to make them pay for what they have found.
