Publisher's Synopsis

'Superior horror literature' New York Times
'A compelling set-up and provocative premise' Kirkus
'There's no let-up, not so much as a chapter-break where you can catch your breath' Stephen King

Lured by these, the group move closer until they happen across a gun-toting Mayan horseman who orders them away. In the midst of the confrontation, one of the group steps inadvertently backwards into the flowering vine. And at that moment their world changes for ever...
