Summary
Two American couples, just out of college, enjoy a pleasant, lazy beach holiday together in Mexico. On an impulse, they go off with newfound friends in search of one of their group--the young German, who, in pursuit of a girl, has headed for the remote Mayan ruins, site of a fabled archeological dig. Then the searchers--moving into the wild interior--begin to suspect that there is an insidious, horrific "other" among them...--From publisher description
Summary
Best friends Amy and Stacy (and their boyfriends Jeff and Eric) travel to Cancun, Mexico for a summer they'll never forget. On arrival, the Americans meet German tourist Mathias, whose brother Heinrich is missing. Last seen heading into the jungle with a beautiful woman to join an archaeological expedition to some Mayan ruins, Heinrich hasn't been heard from since ... although he did leave behind a crudely drawn map. -- Description by Dawn Towery
