TREASURE FEVER: The Hunt for El Dorado
Action, suspense, and espionage are just a few of the thrilling themes covered in James B. McPike’s Treasure Fever: The Hunt for El Dorado. Not unfamiliar with the action scene, McPike has delivered another excellent thriller, which this time is based on the infamous legend of the lost city of El Dorado.
The story begins with some backstory taking place in Peru in the year 1533 AD. Shortly after, we fast forward to the present day and learn about American spy Max Finley. The typically rugged and conniving spy is sent on a mission overseas to capture illustrious archeologist and old flame, Lexa, who is sought after due to the theft of a rare 16th century manuscript. With a Friar as her partner, she believes she has the clues necessary to find the mythical city of El Dorado. When Max catches up with Lexa, it will be imperative that she convinces him that her work is necessary for the betterment of not only themselves but also of the world.
Throughout the story, there is non-stop action and adventure, which makes the pages fly by. I appreciate the many references made to appetizingly foreign food. McPike’s writing places the reader at the center of the action so they can experience the adventure with all of their senses.
