In the year 1520 Hernando Cortez conquered the Aztec Empire and captured riches that filled the treasury of King Charles I of Spain to overflowing. Ships laden with gold and precious stones flowed from the New World to Spain, making Spain the riches country in Europe. However not all the treasure of the Aztec Empire was found by Hernando Cortez and his men as they slaughtered and looted their way through the new world. For hundreds of years rumors abounded of an Aztec secret chamber with rooms full of gold and precious gems that the Conquistadors never found. Quite by accident Peter Logan has found the chamber hidden for more than five hundred years. In a desperate flight from the Spanish family who claims the treasure belongs to them and a killer tracking him down, Peter must somehow find a way to return the treasure to its rightful place with the antiquities of Mexico.
