TIME IS RUNNING OUT . . .

Deep in the Guatemalan jungle lies the Maya Codex, an ancient document containing a terrible warning for civilisation. Archaeologist Dr Aleta Weizman and CIA agent Curtis O'Connor are desperately searching for the codex, but powerful forces in Washington and Rome will do anything to stop them.
