The Search for the Fountain:
Christopher Columbus was a murderer? Amerigo Vespucci was a thief and a con man? Emory University History Professor Charlie Winston thinks so. Winston is on the verge of a discovery which will change the history books forever--proof that America was not named after Amerigo Vespucci, but after a Bristol cod merchant named Richard Amerike, as well as proof that the true discoverer of both America and the Pacific Ocean, John Cabot, was murdered by men on Vespucci's ship. As Winston searches for clues to America's past, he stumbles upon an even greater discovery--the location of the legendary Fountain of Youth. Piecing together clues from centuries-old ship logs and maps, he finds the Island of Boyuca in the Bay of Honduras. There, he and his friends must withstand the mythical Trials of Xibalba and unlock ancient Mayan riddles to find the magical healing water that cures all ills.
A Deadly Virus:
Meanwhile, Winston's wife Murielle, a scientist at the Centers for Disease Control, along with CIA agent Jimmy Pond, are busy battling an airborne strain of the Ebola virus which has been unleashed on Americans at the World Cup soccer matches in Brazil as part of a plot of vengeance by two deranged brothers and a Mexican drug dealer. As the virus threatens to kill millions of Americans, the only hope may be the special water from the Island of Boyuca.
