I've been curious about lost civilizations and this book was set in the Machu Picchu plus a mystery came falling (literally) when Lily Moore (the lead character) witnessed a girl plummeting to her death from the base of the temple! Eeeek. I hope to get the first book though since this one was set three months after.

Summary from Goodreads:
Travel writer Lily Moore has been persuaded by her closest friend to visit Peru. He's convinced the trip will lure Lily out of her dark mood and downward spiral, but Lily is haunted by betrayal and loss. At Machu Picchu, the famous Lost City of the Incas, they discover a woman clinging to life at the bottom of an ancient stone staircase. Just before the woman dies, she tells Lily the name of the man who wanted her dead.
When the local police investigate, the forensic evidence they find doesn’t match up with what Lily knows. Unable to accept the official ruling of accidental death, Lily hunts down the wealthy man who was the dead woman’s traveling companion and discovers a pattern of dead and missing women in his wake.
Obsessed with getting justice for these women, Lily sets in motion a violent chain of events with devastating consequences.
