Two stories in one, The Olmec Ballplayer intertwines the exciting tale of a young couple with a very peculiar weapon escaping from the sacking of Jerusalem in 900 BC, along with the present day story of an adventuresome Canadian archaeologist hot on the trail of an unusual artifact. Both storylines converge at the end when the archaeologist is forced into playing the ancient ball game of the Olmec people in order to try and save his life. But the invariable plot twists, cliffhanger chapter endings, and eccentric characters encountered in between will keep readers constantly guessing and wanting more.
