Read by Scott Brick

"Greetings from the dead," Maxwell Broadbent, a notorious treasure hunter and tomb raider who vanished along with all his riches, declares from the videotape he had left behind after his mysterious disappearance. As is revealed, Maxwell has buried himself and his invaluable collection of rare gems, art, and artifacts somewhere in the world, putting his three sons to the challenge of now finding his pharaoh-like tomb if they plan on ever claiming his inheritance. To complicate things even further, a ruthless pharmaceutical company CEO in search of one of Maxwell's priceless possessions, an ancient Mayan codex which contains all the lost lore of Mayan herbal medicine--knowledge which would revolutionize pharmacology--has sent out mercenaries with orders to kill anyone standing in his way, including the beautiful enigmatic woman accompanying one of them. The race for treasure is on-with stakes being dangerously high
