Summary

Adventure, archaeology, technology, and mystery mix to form a breathtaking action-packed tale.

A 500-year-old puzzle catapults an archaeology professor and his brilliant grad student into the adventure of a lifetime in Inca's Death Cave, a new mystery thriller from author Bradford G. Wheler.

What happened to a band of Inca rebels who journeyed north in Peru to seek the fabled cave of the true gods - and escape the disease and destruction brought by Spanish conquistadors? They were never heard from again. Did they just melt back into their villages or was something more sinister involved? What trace or treasure did they leave behind?

The ingenious plot of this thriller is full of twists and turns, excitement and adventure, archaeology and technology. Listeners will meet fascinating characters they'll never forget: a high-tech billionaire, a quick-witted professor, his beautiful young student, and her still-tough grandfather, a retired Marine gunny sergeant.

Cornell University professor Robert Johnson and his star PhD student are hired by a billionaire entrepreneur to solve a 500-year-old archaeology mystery in northern Peru. But first, they will have to survive corporate skullduggery and drug lord thuggery. And why, 6,700 miles away in Vatican City, is the old guard so upset? What dark secrets could centuries-old manuscripts hold? This assiduously researched, fast-paced novel brings the Incas and their ancestors to life against the backdrop of the Peruvian Andes.

Wheler draws on his own expertise in engineering, technology, and business to help listeners feel that they are living the adventure.

Mixing the action of David Baldacci's The Hit, the tech thrills of Michael Crichton's Jurassic Park, and the dialogue of Robert B. Parker's Spenser novels, Inca's Death Cave is a true pleasure to listen to.

Another great thriller!

Another great thriller! I have read all of them and enjoyed them immensely. Each has a unique and different location which is also a learning experience. I can't wait for the next adventure.

Very well written!

Great characters, interesting subject concept, and great writing. Archeology and the Bible combined. The characters are complimentary of each other. I will read all of Bradford Gordon Wheler books!

If you like listening to lots of stat's....

Chapter 22 and I'm bored. So many statistics and geographical information, too little of the story moving on. I think I can predict what is likely to happen. Hidden mystical treasure, a baddie group trying to steal it, or the tech used to find it. Trials and tribulations and finally yay all the goodies win, the baddies loose. If the author hadn't spent so much text showing off the information and research he must have done, the story would have had better impetus and vivacity. Sorry but I really don't care what happens next, if anything. What a shame as it had lots of potential. Returning the book

Nice idea - shame about the execution

I love archeological/ historical fiction. Especially if laced with well researched factual information. This was a nice idea but was sadly disappointing in two respects:
First, I’m sorry to say the narrator. I recommend listen to the sample and see if you can put up with the slightly monotonous American drawl with one voice for all males characters and and the same slightly falsetto for the females. Couldnt listen in bed or sat in a comfy place as just sent me to sleep.
Secondly , And far more irritating, is the fact that the dialogue ( which is a lot of the book) seems to have been written in the style of a 6yp. Most lines - even if only two characters present in the scene - have those lines start with “he said” she said” or “ said”. Insulting to the intelligence of the listener and quickly becomes tedious and then just plain annoying.
Perhaps the author could buy a thesaurus and find other variations for “said”
Not sure if this was self published. If so you need an editor. If is wasnt you need a NEW editor. Shame because the basic story line was an interesting subject. Maybe scrap this version and try a 2nd edition???

A Great Series

This is a great series and I have read all of them. While each story is stand-alone, there is, of course, character development that continues from book to book. I highly recommend this book and the rest of the series if you can read them.

Excalibur, murder, mayhem, and mystery. I think this one was great. Fast-moving, well written and no cliff hangers!

A Thriller

Characters that are amazingly good or maniacally bad take you through a series of archeological clues and mysteries that are wonderfully creative. The places they go and what happens will stun you!

Great story!

Great story! I loved the adventure, great characters, and the setting was right on. You had my attention right away. I especially liked the mystery and the supernatural mingled in your story.
