Calling Young Mystery Lovers!

Visiting the ancient Maya city of Calakmul when I was researching for The Serpent King was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Climbing to the top of the pyramid temple and looking out over the sea of treetops was simply breathtaking.

So I jumped at the chance to set another book in the same area. This time, it's for a rather younger readership. The Mystery of the Lost Hunter is an early reader for the brilliant Rising Stars reading scheme. It's set in a different ancient Maya city - Tikal this time - and features young twins, Itzel and Little Turtle who make a remarkable dicovery while lost in the forest.
