Archaeologist Arthur Dawkins discovers the tomb of a god from the Mayan creation stories when he responds to a plea for help from the KulWinik Mayans.

The KulWinik leader, Yax K'in, has reluctant responsibility for the end of the world and summons his long time archaeologist friend. The Mayan leader has a god-given power to complete his task; he cannot die.

When access to the tomb is lost after Mexican authorities interfere, Arthur and his team race against time to forestall a seemingly predetermined fate.

Michelle, Arthur's assistant and ex-partner in a relationship terminated ten years ago by Yax K'in, is shocked to discover there is a grain of scientifically plausible truth in the beliefs of the ancient Mayans.

The ancient stories of the creator god that lived among the Mayans could be partly true. Enough to cause the end of the world...

This is the first instalment in the At the End of the World series of books. However, it is self-contained and can be enjoyed on its own.

The next two books in the series are available.

Continue the series with the story of the god Hachakyum when he lived among the ancient Mayans and created the world because of, and for, a remarkable human woman. Book Two: The First Genesis.

At the End of the World begins with Arthur's geologist friend Hamish losing his wife of forty years. Book three in the series recounts the tortuous forty year love story of Hamish and Kate, as told through the eyes of Hamish's nemesis, Euan. Book Three: Hamish and Kate.

Look out for more titles as they become available.
