The Gates of Beyul

by J.C.Pater

Mummified remains were found where they did not belong – inside a cave on the third-highest mountain on Earth. Dr. Jenny Williams assists in solving this puzzle, but what starts as a scientific project turns out to be an ancient mystery, which takes Jenny from dangerous altitudes in the Himalayas to medieval England, and inside the Maya ruins in Mexico and Belize. Along the way, she has to fight a powerful adversary who pursues the same mystery with his own agenda. She also finds loyal friends – a mountaineer from New Zealand, and a Chicana physician from LA. There is another player closely watching their progress – a mysterious group of men and women headquartered in the heart of a Basque country in Spain.

A pharmaceutical company turns the child into a lab animal to crack the puzzle of his immunity and turn it into profit. The mystery deepens when the boy reads from a book that can’t be decoded for hundreds of years. Jenny Williams and Sonia Ruiz are determined to save the boy and travel to one of the most remote parts of the world to return him to his parents. They try to stay one step ahead of the thugs sent by the pharmaceutical company that wants the child back.
