Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Set in a dusty, remote Peruvian village, a police captain finds himself flirting with, and eventually seduced by, his darker nature after he begins investigating a bizarre, gruesome series of ritual killings that may be linked to the sacrificial rites of an ancient Indian civilization. After finding the eyeless heads of several young men, captain Percy heads for the office of Catalino Pinto, the curator of a local museum who is also an expert on ancient cultures. It is Pinto who opens the door and leads Percy down a ruinous path of death from which there can be no return.
