The Lost City by Henry Shukman

The Lost City

Henry Shukman

A rollicking good modern adventure story - bandits, drug barons, romantic interest, a soldier of fortune. Everything thrown into the mix, and what a mix it is. Think of John Buchan, crossed with Graham Greene, and with a dash of Robert Louis Stevenson. An unputdownable, good, fun read.

Extract

Then from outside he heard Cruz shout. Muffled by the tunnel came another man's voice, then another shout, followed by a sharp snap. He knew what it was. In the depth of the tunnel, a shot would sound like that. There was a short cry, a grunt, then silence.
