All his life, Ash has been haunted by the ancient curse that killed his parents.
From the cobweb-choked ruins of a lost city in the Amazon emerges a gold spider statue with flashing emerald eyes. If the legends are true, the gold spider has the power to erase the past . . . change the future . . . perhaps even grant eternal life. But touching the spider will steal your memories — and then your life.
For centuries, men have killed to possess the gold spider. Like the man who murdered Ash’s parents. Now, the killer has returned, and Ash is trapped in the grip of the spider’s curse.
Can he solve the riddle of the gold spider before its deadly curse claims him next?
