Raymond and Maria de Souza Levalle settled on the uninhabited island of Cayo Perdido and, secure in their isolation, fashioned a paradise for themselves and their children. It did not last. In 1884, after almost two decades hiding from him, Raymond and Maria were murdered on the beach of their tiny atoll by Osvaldo Dos Santos and the crew of the Corcovado. The eldest of their children, fourteen year old Gabriela was abducted, leaving Charles and William alone on the island.
On the fourth anniversary of that tragic event, the brothers receive a letter from Brazil. From that letter they learn that Gabriela is alive somewhere in the Amazon, that Dos Santos intends to marry her on her eighteenth birthday, and that Gabriela vows to take her life rather than succumb to him. The brothers have only weeks to act. They set off aboard the Oro Perdido to find Gabriela, toward the realm of the mysterious Xingu people.
