This is a historical adventure from Nicholas Meyer, more famous as the author of the Sherlock Holmes pastiche "The Seven Percent Solution" and as director of the Star Trek movie "The Wrath of Khan", and his co-writer, Barry Jay Kaplan. In the waning years of the 19th century, roguish adventurer Kincaid comes to Manaus, one of the richest and most decadent cities in the world, on a secret mission. It's slow-moving at first, but steadily gathers steam as it goes along. Well worth the time to get to the high stakes chase on the Amazon River. Good fun, and well worth a few hours of your time.
