When I picked up this book I didn’t realize it was a sequel, let alone number five in a series. This is not one of those “If you haven’t read the previous book(s), it’s okay” kind of books. There are many, many references to the previous book, Secrets by the Sea – murders and tunnels, ghosts and a missing coin among them. You will be much better off if you read Secrets first.

Jungle Jeopardy is a quick read, not too intense and not terribly lengthy. The story starts in Antigua when Clifton is contacted by a stranger about a rare coin his girlfriend’s grandfather had been searching for. He is soon traipsing to Costa Rica with Dana, the heroine/girlfriend, following in his wake. And this is where the real fun begins.

The story begins to involve kidnapping, hidden caves, Mayan funerary sites, drug dealers, and a black jaguar. However, things seemed a little too “easy” for me. The ending, especially. Everything just fell into place. There was no struggle, no argument, no need to convince the police who the bad guy really was. I would have liked to see more of a struggle to clean things up.

All in all, not a bad read. If you’re looking for a little adventure in a shorter version, this could be it. ( )
