Temple is one hellwa Thriller which will keep you glued to the novel till you finish reading it. You become a instant fan of author Matthew Reilly if you haven’t read his books before.
Story goes like – William Race, a mild-mannered professor, is impressed into the U.S. army on a bizarre mission: to retrieve a centuries-old Incan idol revered by a Peruvian Indian tribe. The idol, carved out of a meteorite, is the missing ingredient in a so-called “planet-killer,” a weapon long sought not only by the U.S. government, but also by a neo-Nazi group whose scientists, linguists, and anthropologists seem to be one step ahead of the Americans. Only Race can translate the legendary manuscript that holds the key to the idol’s location high in the Andes in a temple guarded by huge, man-eating panthers, on a moat seething with equally carnivorous crocodiles.
This books might have too much action and violence for some of you. I have seen people say the story is far fetched, over active. But if you love fast pace action thrillers, Temple is another good novel to read.
