Launched at the London Book Fair this great book has enjoyed immense success.

THEY HAD TO FIGHT, THE POLICE,  THE TRIADS, THE YAKUZA, THE SUPERNATURAL, THE JUNGLE, EACH OTHER!!

 

ADVENTURE / THRILLER. In 1945 a Japanese officer, General Tomoyuki Yamashita, buried valuable spoils of war in a network of tunnels throughout the Philippine Islands.

 

 Maps were drawn of the locations, and plans were made to return to the sites after the war to collect the treasures. However, after his arrest by the American forces and subsequent execution in 1946, all trace of the maps had vanished.

The Mystery of Yamashita's Map takes this wartime legend and moulds it into a fast-paced thriller, combining history, science, myth and mystery into a heady combination that is hard to put down.

 

Joe Hutchins, an American adventurer is enlisted by Professor Okada to help him decipher a map that has come into his possession. Since acquiring the map the professor is haunted by strange dreams and visions that both terrify and excite him. Only Joe can lead him to the tunnels, and to what is concealed inside...
