As the end of the Mayan calendar approaches, fourteen-year-old Max Murphy and his friend Lola, the modern Maya girl who saved his life in the perilous jungle, are racing to outwit the twelve Lords of Death. Their quest takes them to a part of Spain steeped in legend and superstition, where the teens must face betrayal, madness, bluffs, and double-crossings to uncover long-buried secrets and find the Yellow Jaguar Stone. As they search, they must also outrun a pack of hellhounds and the dastardly Count Antonio de Landa, who is hot on their heels. But no matter where they run, all roads lead to Xibalba. There, in the cold and watery Maya underworld, we finally learn why only Max Murphy can save the world from the villainous Lords of Death.

Also available in hardcover (ISBN 978-1-60684-072-6) and e-book (ISBN 978-1-60684-201-0) editions.

About the Author

Jon Voelkel grew up in Latin America, where he survived monkey stew, giant rats and a plane crash in the jungle. He met his English wife, Pamela (whose childhood was woefully uneventful), when they worked in the same London advertising agency. They now live with their three children in the wilds of Vermont.
