Hunter Smith thought his thrill-seeking days were over when he retired from the Marines and enrolled in college. But when his archaeology professor tells him about an old journal detailing the location of a forgotten people's treasure, Hunter realizes he can't let the guy go it alone. Dr. Stephen Crawley, PhD could barely find his own in the parking lot, yet he'd decided he could fly to war-torn Mexico, sneak into cartel territory, and find priceless gold. And get home in one piece.
So, the two men embark on the adventure of a lifetime, just Stephen and Hunter, going for the gold. Sure, they'd need a pilot to fly down discreetly, but that's it. And maybe a student to do all the tedious research. And maybe one more for the digging. Stephen, Hunter, a pilot, and a grad student. Or two. Maybe three. But that's it.
This will be easy.
