Publisher's 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.

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.

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!

Good Narration & Story

Good narration, a letter comes and he should consider it. Leads him to Inca caves, a 500 year old mystery, for the Professor, and his star student. With a team and a year of funding, sounds to good to be true. Good archeological.story. Given Arc audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

This Athor Is A Genious

An intriguing mystery solved, and a very interesting take on Genesis. Also a study on how a well-meaning group can be subverted by ambition and egoism in the wrong leader.

Good One

A good archaelogical adventure that will charm you until the end, and a very promising beginning of the series. I, at least, am intrigued enough to want to keep listening.

Great Plot

There was action, plot, history, and fast-paced adventure. This is exactly the type of book I normally read. If you enjoy a strong main character with a CIA type background, a story that involves puzzle-style and history and a little bit of budding love this is the story for you.
