The Danny Lansing Adventures, book 3

Adrenaline at your fingertips!

A lost city, a legendary treasure and a brutal curse. All lie at the centre of a tangle of lies…and worse.

There could be any number of explanations for the sudden disappearance of Angus’s archaeologist friend into the Central American rainforest. Crocodiles, jaguars…even Guatemalan drug smugglers.

With the local police getting nowhere, Danny and Angus realise it is down to them to uncover the truth, as so head to Belize.

But it turns out to be stranger – and far more terrifying – than they could have ever imagined.

In the dark heart of the jungle, Danny must find new reserves of strength and cunning if he is to outwit the calculating insanity of an enemy far more dangerous than the wildlife.

Only one thing is certain: someone is going to suffer the Curse of Can-Balam!


As ever, Matt went on location to write this latest Danny Lansing adventure, this time travelling to the rainforests of Belize, where he saw incredible history and a few scary artefacts, like the one below. Maybe a bit of make-up would help…
