Temple is a thriller novel written by Australian author Matthew Reilly and first published in 1999. Like Reilly's other books, Temple's major attractions are the fast pace and the complexity of the action scenes. At the time of publication, Reilly hinted at the possibility of a sequel starring the same protagonist, Professor William Race, but the release of such a book has never been officially confirmed.

I decided to try Matthew Reilly because he was recommended based on the fact that I read books by James Rollins. In the beginning, the book seemed intriguing and entertaining. Unfortunately, this did not last.

Four centuries ago, a precious idol was hidden in the jungles of Peru . Truth is, this was never hard for me, since I picked up Ice Station as a teen, but I can understand how many readers who want a serious, plausible thriller may be appalled by Reilly's over-the-top writing. There are plenty of books that are better suited to those people, and they are welcome to them, but for anybody who loves to be entertained and amazed by a story that's a little unbelievable but at the same time incredibly fun, pick up Temple.
