Product Description

An epic 2 book adventure set in the Amazon Jungle about a search for a Lost City and a treasure greater than any yet discovered.


An ancient mystery.
A Lost Treasure.
A Hidden City.
An impossible location.
An unimaginable adventure.


Included in Aztec and Mayan legends, Conquistadors had heard rumours of its existence when exploring the New World, but never found it.
During World War 2, Nazi inspired archaeologists were convinced they had pinpointed its location. They packed a U-Boat with supplies and set a course for the Amazon Jungle. They disappeared!
Many adventurers eager to claim the legendary gold as their own entered one of the most inhospitable places on earth, the Amazon Jungle. Most were never seen again!
And yet the exact location of this fantastic hoard that so many have dreamed of finding remains a mystery. Any who may have stumbled upon it never returned to tell the tale. It was as if someone, or something, was protecting it...


In 1925, Victorian explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett enters the Amazon Jungle to search for a Lost City. Like so many before him, he was never seen or heard from again. Until now!
When a message from the past is discovered washed up on an English beach, it reveals new information about the ill-fated 1925 expedition. A modern day expedition sets off to follow in the footsteps of Colonel Fawcett in an attempt to locate the Lost City and its legendary hoard of priceless treasure.


The Lost City Book 1 & 2 will take you inside the Lost City to learn of its many secrets and dangers. A thrilling story of adventure and discovery that weaves together an exciting blend of fact and fiction linked to the legends surrounding the lost Fawcett expedition and the mysterious Amazonian Jungle.


An exciting archaeological mystery thriller with flashbacks to Colonel Fawcett's 1925 Expedition.

Reviews


"This is a terrific two book series set within the atmospherically described Amazon jungle. I could easily imagine myself tagging along with the adventurers."

"If you like reading Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly, James Rollins or Michael Crichton, you will enjoy this action adventure from Ben Hammott."

" Has all the ingredients for an instant success: great plot, interesting characters, a large dose of mystery, impressive locations , unexpected twists and discoveries, deception and betrayal and even a touch of romance and a spattering of humor. This story will keep you entertained from beginning to end. Recommended for the permanent library of all action adventure readers."


"The Mysterious and Dangerous Amazon Jungle, Subterranean Rooms, Tunnels, Pyramids, Ancient Aliens, Nazis, Traps, Thrilling Escapes, Chases, Strange Creatures, Dangerous Enemies, a Lost City and Great Characters, are just a few ingredients that make this exciting adventure thriller a must read for fans of this genre." (NY.Post.book.reviews)

"From bestselling author Ben Hammott this action packed adventure takes you into the Amazon Jungle to follow in the footsteps of lost Victorian Explorer, Colonel Percy Fawcett. What we have here, in part, is an excellent dramatization of what may have happened to Fawcett and what he may have discovered in the unexplored regions of the Amazon. The well written plot is seldom predictable and some of the characters you think are safe, and will be alive by the time the book reaches its climax, are not. Sights and sounds of the Amazon are described well and help to set the atmospheric tone the explorers travel through. A thoroughly enjoyable adventure."

5.0 out of 5 stars A ripping tale! 12 February 2017
By MapleLeafAussie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What an incredibly fantastic story!

History and the present intertwine in this ripping yarn of adventure and adversity deep in the Amazon jungle. Ben Hammott has crafted an ingenious tale full of great characters, all of whom are likeable but not necessarily always good people.

The story hooks readers with the mysteries of the past and legends of treasure, and then connects to them through the descendants of the original adventurers.
From that point on, this pair of books takes the reader on a journey through rough terrain, down treacherous rivers, and territory inhabited by previously unknown tribes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this Indiana Jones style adventure. It had plenty of heart-in-your-throat moments, a tantalising amount of mystery and intrigue, and some really engaging characters and dialogue to keep the story moving.

5 stars for this great book that would suit any reader from YA upwards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best action & adventure books I have read. 29 November 2016
By The Commish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just purchased a Kindle Paperwhite two months ago after moving from NJ to FL and have only found the time to look for Kindle books to read. I came across these Ben Hammot books and couldn't stop reading them. These have to be the best books I have read in years. They have just about everything, history, lost civilizations, Indiana Jones action, murder, good guys & bad guys, Nazis, aliens, monsters, a UFO & the adventure to find a lost city in the Amazon & discover a cave full of Mayan & Inca gold. It's well put together with a great cast of unlikely characters and best of all it's highly believable. It was money well spent. I can't wait to see the movie version. If you like action, mystery and adventure you can't go wrong with this two book set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read 21 March 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having 2 books in one means a lot to me. I like a long good read and these 2 books provided non stop action till the end. The only regret was the author did not provide more back ground story about the alien. I wanted more information about her.

A wild ride action adventure with some interesting characters and ingenious plot. Could maybe have developed the romance angle a little more and involved the Amazon women as well.
