The Ruins (Scott Smith)

The Ruins
Scott Smith

Blurb: What happens when one simple innocent decision becomes a catastrophic mistake...

Craving an adventure to wake them from their lethargic Mexican holiday before they return home, a group of four friends impulsively set off in search of one of their own who has travelled to the interior to investigate an archaeological dig in the Mayan ruins.

After a long journey into the heart of the jungle, the group come across a trail. A hillside covered in bright red flowers lures them closer. A Mayan horseman approaches behind them. But this is no friendly welcome: he has a gun and orders them away fiercely. In the midst of the confrontation, one of the group steps inadvertently backwards, into the flowering vine. And at that moment their world changes forever...
