Product description

Review

'What reader could resist a new book by Douglas Preston called The Lost City of the Monkey God? Not this reader. Preston's book offers rewards for both the mystery fan and the nonfiction aficionado. The Lost City is addictive-fast-paced and riveting, but it's also important. We mustn't repeat the cataclysmic mistakes of the past. Ironically – as The Lost City illustrates – that's exactly what our short-sighted civilization is doing right now' -- James Patterson

'Preston, at great risk to his own life, has produced a thrilling and powerful adventure story' -- David Grann, The Lost City of Z

'Revelatory, chilling, creepy, and alive with deadly snakes and insects bearing incurable disease, it's high adventure at its best and all true' -- Erik Larson, author of The Devil in the White City

'Deftly balancing swashbuckling action with thoughtful reflections on conservation and the ethics of archaeology' ―
Mail on Sunday, 5 star review

Leaves the reader both impressed and over-awed... An adventure well worth the telling and the 16 pages of colour illustrations add further veracity to the impact' ―
Country Life

'A story that moves from thrilling to sobering, fascinating to downright scary - trademark Preston, in other words, and another winner' ―
Kirkus Reviews

This gripping book follows every step of the journey... It's incredible enough that in this day and age there are still unexplored areas of the planet' ―
Geographical Magazine

'A grippingly told and reassuringly grown-up account of the discovery of an ancient city in Honduras' ―
TLS

'Preston at his best. Entirely non-fiction, this reads every bit as excitingly as any of his fiction accounts. Fast paced, thrilling, insightful, with great descriptions of the excitement and dangers of finding a 'lost' city that had not been visited in 500 years. A great account' ―
Buzzfeed.

Book Description

A five-hundred-year-old legend. An ancient curse. A medical mystery. A journey into the unknown heart of the world's densest jungle and a stunning archaeological discovery.
