The pilot’s voice came over the loudspeaker. “Sorry, folks, it’s a bit choppy this last part. We’re slightly ahead of schedule, and the current time is 5:13 p.m. Temperature is a balmy eighty-nine degrees, and there’s a nice wind from the east at about eight miles per hour. In other words, a perfect day for lying on the beach.”
Except I won’t be lying on a beach, Matt thought irritably. I’m going to go stare into some big crack in the ground and pretend I’m enjoying myself.
Matt has never understood how his father could be more interested in piles of ancient rocks than in his own son. While Matt was playing his way through championships and earning a basketball scholarship to Duke, his dad was always gone—too busy digging up dust to notice anything going on in the current century.
But now that he’s agreed to spend an entire month at one of his father’s digs, Matt is about to discover a whole lot more than he bargained for in the wonders of a mysterious city that’s been lost for centuries.
