The Vivero letter

The Vivero Letter was written in 1968 by Desmond Bagley.

The story starts as Jeremy Wheale’s brother is killed by a hit man sent by the Mafia. The tragedy revolves around a 16th century gold tray which is a family heirloom. Wheale travels from Devon in the south of England to Mexico and from there to the tropical rain forests of the Yucatán Peninsula. Wheale works with two archeologists as they try to find a legendary hoard of Mayan gold. The treasure is from the lost city of the Mayas, Uaxuanoc.   The Mob are on the trail of Wheale, as are the Chicleros, a deadly group of convict mercenaries as Wheale begins to mistrust his two archeologist friends.

A superb book with lots of action, a clever plot and great locations.
