The Aztecs made golden images of their terrifying gods, and fed them a daily sacrifice of human hearts. In Peru, the Inca nobility possessed so much gold that they used it to cover entire walls. And yet the source of the El Dorado legend lay elsewhere and in Colombia a mysterious circular lake conceals a vast treasure in gold and emeralds, the offerings of an Indian tribe to their god - the Sun.

Arnold Bristow regains consciousness after a hit-and-run accident with some rather startling revelations. Was it really who he says it was driving the car that hit him? Was what the driver shouted at him of such spiritual significance? Was the incident simply a reminder that he should be going out into the world to put to use a certain - hitherto unused - gift?
