It's motorcycle racing time for Rory O'Connor. That means speed and danger. But it's his brother Michael, an English professor at Georgetown, who is really running at breakneck speed and in danger. When he is injured, Michael's paralysis lands him in a gritty and dangerous state institution and launches Rory on a desperate quest for money that leads him to the raunchy underbelly of the Russian mafia, computerized electronic deception and bank robbery. Pursued by both the mob and the FBI, Rory flees to the remote heart of the Andes, the altiplano, where he hopes to hide in the shadows of the towering mountains. But even after stealing millions and regaining the Lost Treasure of the Incas, Rory learns that to find himself, he must first lose everything.
At times a stark look at the world of disability, a computer bank robbery thriller, and an irreverent journey into the realm of the senses, The Lost Treasure of the Incas is a raffish, lyrical, and wildly imaginative tale spun from an antihero with muchos cojones and feet of clay.
