Your friend Tom disappears on assignment in Mexico searching for clues to the sudden collapse of the Mayan civilization. Meanwhile a pool of human blood appears at a Mayan ruin where Tom was last seen alive. What is behind Tom's disappearance? Has he traveled back in time? Or are the practices of the Maya alive and well, including human sacrifice?

A large spacecraft hovers over the pyramid.
"What's happening Manuel?" you ask, hardly believing what you see.
"These Mayan ruins are contact points for other planets. Earth is seen as a leading planet. Other civilizations want to learn from us. They asked us to come to an outer galactic congress on the rights of life in the universe. That is the last transport. If you think Tom may have gone on the mission, go now."

If you decide to join the mission, knowing the danger of never returning, turn to page 87. If you decide to stay and finish your job, turn to page 88.

Did Tom drink Dr. Lopez's time travel potion? Should you travel to Chichen Itza first or does your instinct tell you to go to Uxmal? Is the strange message in the Nunnery meant for you? And what is the meaning of the red hand? Many choices await your search for the mystery of the Maya. Choose wisely. Tom's life might depend on it.

    Okay, I'll admit, I indulged with this. It took me back to leisure reading I did as a 10 year old. I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I will admit to an overwhelming feeling of silliness as I read it...
