When Gideon discovers a mysterious drawing tucked in an old journal he returns to his mission area in Jamaica with dreams of finding a legendary treasure. Some would kill to keep the treasure secret. This thrilling adventure takes you deep into Jamaica’s treacherous cockpit country and back in time for a spine-tingling mystery you won’t be able to put down.

Gideon has recently returned home from an LDS mission to Jamaica. He is in possession of an old journal written years ago by Lieutenant Benjamin Jarvis. He comes across a symbol he recognizes and has a burning desire to learn more about it, no matter what it may cost him personally.

This book alternated between Lt. Jarvis's journal and Gideon's life. It was interesting to read Lt. Jarvis's experiences and the twists and turns his life took. Gideon was determined to learn more about the symbol and there were also twists and turns throughout his journey. I felt like I was there with him. There were some heart pounding moments, and at times I wasn't sure who I could trust. I loved the way this was written and it drew me in from the beginning. I had no idea how this would end and loved how the author wrapped the story up! I'm looking forward to reading more from this author in the future!

Born and raised in Arizona, Aaron is proud to call the desert home.  He came of age in the suburbs of Sacramento, California and as a missionary in Jamaica, where he fell in love with the people and their culture, but he has always been drawn back to the valley of the sun.  He married his childhood crush, and the girl of his dreams, in 2001.  Together they are raising four beautiful and rambunctious children.  He worked as a freelance sports reporter for The Arizona Republic for nearly ten years, combining his love of writing and sports.  In his storytelling he draws heavily on his love of history, adventure, his faith and his own life experiences.
