Book review: The Land of Look Behind

The-Land-of-Look-behind-Blog-TourAbout the book:
When Gideon, a former missionary, discovers a mysterious drawing tucked in an ancient journal he returns to Jamaica with dreams of finding a centuries old treasure.  He quickly discovers there are those who would kill to keep the treasure secret. This thrilling adventure takes you deep into Jamaica’s treacherous cockpit country and back in time for a spine-tingling mystery you won’t be able to put down.

About the author:
Born and raised in Arizona, Aaron is proud to call the desert home.  He came of age in the suburbs of Sacramento, California and as a missionary in Jamaica, where he fell in love with the people and their culture, but he has always been drawn back to the valley of the sun.  He married his childhood crush, and the girl of his dreams, in 2001.  Together they are raising four beautiful and rambunctious children.  He worked as a freelance sports reporter for The Arizona Republic for nearly ten years, combining his love of writing and sports.  In his storytelling he draws heavily on his love of history, adventure, his faith and his own life experiences.

From Reidhead Randomness:

A soldier named Jarvis journeyed deep into Jamaica and discovered a land of myth, treasure, and danger.  This could have been adventure enough, but 300 years later, his journal finds it's way into the hands of Gideon, who is serving his mission in Jamaica. When he comes home, he has "accidentally" taken the journal.  He and his friend plan a trip back to Jamaica...to "return the journal."  BUT....He is set on finding the lost treasure.   As they begin their adventure, they come against LOTS of opposition in the quest to find the treasure.  It is a fun adventure book!  It really keeps you on the edge of your seat.

The writing is fun to read, as it is written with a Jamaican accent through parts.  It makes it feel very authentic, but a little tricky to read (I had to reread a couple passages to figure them out).
