Nick Caine and Ishi Cuyamel return to the United States with heavy hearts following a series of unexpected surprises in Scotland... surprises that have left them without Marie Da Vinci while placing the pair in the coerced employment of a secretive United States government agency.Rather than face the threat of extended jail time, for their role in looting precious artifacts from throughout the world, Nick and Ishi agree to give up their livelihoods as 'creative archaeologists'. If only working for 'Project Golden Eye' was that simple.Nick and Ishi's first assignment should be one that plays to their strengths and familiarity, since it involves yet another lost 'city of gold'. However, as this particular ancient metropolis lies somewhere deep in the Amazon jungles of Ecuador, it does not carry the renowned status of most other legendary sites in South America. What it does bring, is the very real danger of losing one's head to the ruthlessly brutal Javaro tribe-best known for their fierce independence from modern society and the ancient practice of shrinking their enemies' severed heads.To avoid their beloved noggins becoming belt ornaments, Nick and Ishi must best can best a cunningly evil adversary, while also resisting the instinctive urge to collect artifacts from a treasure heretofore believed to be purely mythical. Can the pair can survive these perils and more lurking in the upper Amazon Basin? The answer lies in the mystery of the River of the Damned....Acclaim for the novels of Aiden James:"The intense writing style of Aiden James kept my eyes glued to the story and the pages seemed to fly by at warp speed. ...Twists, turns, and surprises pop up at random times to keep the reader off balance. It all blends together to create one of the best stories I have read all year."--Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for "The Devil's Paradise""Aiden James has written a deeply psychological, gripping tale that keeps the readers hooked from page one."--Bookfinds review for "The Forgotten Eden""Aiden James writing style flows very easily and I found that "Cades Cove" snowballed into a very gripping tale. Clearly the strengths in the piece were as the spirit's interaction became prevalent with the family... The Indian lore and ceremonies and the flashbacks to Allie Mae's (earthly) demise were very powerful. I think those aspects separated the work from what we've seen before in horror and ghost tales."--Evelyn Klebert, author of "A Ghost of a Chance" and "Dragonflies""Aiden James has a keen eye for detail and an uncanny knack for scaring the hell out of me. We are watching a master at work. "The Raven Mocker" is a nearly perfect thriller. Ghost stories don't get any better than this."--J.R. Rain, Bestselling author of the "Vampire for Hire" series"As with the previous titles I have read by this author, I found the author's writing style to be silky smooth and the main plot line to be extremely creative. The fertile imagination of Aiden James definitely knows what today's readers want to see in their stories."--Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews for "The Vampires' Last Lover"
