This... novel... is set in Mexico and recounts the adventures of 'Lucky' Adam Gordon, a young best-selling novelist who has gone to that country in search of background material for a new book, and who soon finds himself in love with the exquisitely beautiful but deeply religious Chela.

Adam's ability to go back in time enables the reader to glimpse the magnificent but barbaric civilisation of ancient Mexico, but this is only part of the story. How Adam becomes entangled with some sinister individuals who are prepared to go to almost any lengths to achieve their evil ambition, how he finds himself continually fraught with danger, caught between two powerful rival factions, and having to participate in revolting pagan rites, is described in this thrilling story by 'The Prince of Thriller-Writers'.

Publisher's synopsis:
This latest of the Roger Brook stories, continues his saga through the years 1807-1809. Napoleon is at the height of his powers. By now the complete autocrat, lusting for more power, he had warred against Prussia, Austria and Hanover, struck through Poland, towards the Baltic and into Russia. The needless wars were bleeding France white.

Roger Brook, still the most valuable and resourceful of secret agents, moves amongst the centres of power of Europe and beyond, and owing to mischance and intrigue is carried to Turkey, Persia, Portugal and Brazil.

But, interwoven with the historical pattern, runs the thread of Roger's passionate involvement with the lovely Lisala de Pombal – a woman as licentious as she is beautiful – who plays her part in leading him from one desperate situation to another.
