The new original Indiana Jones novel from bestselling author Steve
Perry is now available in a bookstore near you! Or it should be
as the paperback was already released almost a week ago.
Army of the Dead
There's no rest for the weary treasure hunter, but that's how
Indiana Jones likes it. Fresh from spying for the Allies in the
thick of World War II Germany, the globe-trotting archaeologist
doesn't need much persuading to join his cohort "Mac"
McHale in searching for one of the most coveted of artifacts:
the fabled black pearl known as the Heart of Darkness. But the
partners in adventure are not alone on their foray into the mysterious
jungles of Haiti. German and Japanese agents are in hot pursuit,
determined to possess the ebony artifact -- and its secrets --
for their own sinister purposes. And shadowing them all is an
infamous voodoo priest, with powers of both diabolical science
and black magic at his command.
On a treacherous odyssey across the Island of the Dead, where
the legend of zombi looms large, spiders, snakes, and booby-traps
will prove the least of Indy's challenges. And capturing the prize
will be child's play compared with confronting an enemy unlike
any other, whose numbers are legion and nearly impossible to kill
-- because they're already dead...
