A forgotten kingdom. An abandoned Angkor pyramid. A priceless statue, and the men who would kill for it.
When ex-spy Boran Tompkins agrees to help his friend Thomas investigate a suspicious art dealer, he has no way of knowing it will lead him into a dangerous game of intrigue and kidnapping. With Thomas's life on the line, Boran pursues a smuggler's gang to a forgotten thousand-year-old pyramid deep in the heart of the Cambodian jungle, shrouded in mystery.
As he uncovers a sinister plot to steal a priceless Khmer artifact–the answer to the mystery of the Koh Ker pyramid–and rob his country of its history, he resolves to stop the theft, no matter the cost. Will he succeed in his quest, or will the truth be lost forever?
