Her hated husband has sent word from the Amazon: He has found the fabled city of Guiana-Capac, and his brother is to sell the entire domain to pay for an expedition, dispossessing Vivian in the process. So the lady has come to seek the one man who can help her: Long John Silver...</span></p>
The Neptune is gone, stolen by the Indian guide Moc, or maybe by Guiana-Capac’s malevolent gods. The last members of the ill-fated expedition—Silver, Dantzig, Livesey and Bonnet—are stranded in the ancient city. Far from being broken, however, they will face head-on what lies inside the gargantuan ruin, each for his own reasons: revenge, duty, gold... or to rescue the beautiful Lady Hastings. For Moc isn’t done with them, and he has plans for Vivian.
