Gabriel Hunt, of the Hunt Foundation, in true Indiana Jones
form, stands beside his brother, Michael, in the
Metropolitan Museum of Art, uncomfortable in his tuxedo.
The Hunt Foundation has loaned several artifacts that
Gabriel discovered to the museum and is hosting a party in
the Great Hall. Gabriel catches the eye of a beautiful
woman who seems to glide across the floor in her evening
gown, carrying something wrapped in old frayed material.
Mesmerized by her beauty, Gabriel watches with excitement
thinking that she only has eyes for him as she comes up and
introduces herself as Mariella, then turns to speak to
Michael. In the blink of an eye, as she holds up a bottle
to Michael, then all hell breaks loose as the wait staff
pull guns and a shoot-out starts. Gabriel tries to defend
the beauty. He fights some of the men and catches a glimpse
one of them carrying her out of the museum. Pure mayhem and
pandemonium leave several dead and the woman kidnapped.
When Gabriel inspects the broken bottle and the material,
he discovers the material is a Confederate battle flag. He
slips the evidence into his jacket as the thrill of the
chase starts hitting his veins. By the next day, someone
threatens Gabriel's life a second time. He is determined to
find out what is so important about the flag. His search
takes him from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the
swamplands of Florida to Mexico, where he meets a museum
director, Cierra, whose life is now threatened just for
meeting him. Circumstances take Cierra and Gabriel deep
into the jungles of Guatemala, where they meet up with
Mariella, the beautiful woman from the museum, and her
captors, who once again try to kill Gabriel.
Esparza, the man behind all the violence, is a very rich
man who's in search of the fountain of youth. Mariella was
trying to bring some of the fountain's water to the Hunt
Foundation so they could research its properties in the
hope of discovering the mystery of the water's power.
From the rip-roaring opening to the tragic end, HUNT AT THE
WELL OF ETERNITY is indeed reminiscent of an Indiana Jones
adventure with a little bit of romance and a whole lot of
action. Leisure Adventure's new Gabriel Hunt series
promises it all and delivers it in this first story. Very
The woman carrying the blood stained flag seemed desperate
for help ó but it was the attack that followed that
convinced Gabriel there was something here men would kill
for. And that was before he knew about the dungeon in the
Mayan ruins, or the legendary secret hidden in the rain
forest of Guatemala...
