Healed by guerrilla doctor Dona Villalobos, he falls in love with her and tries to save her from the war’s widening horror of insanity, tragedy, and death. Caught in the crucible of violence and love, he learns the peaks and depths the human heart can reach, and what humans will do for, and to, each other. Based on the author's own experiences as one of the last foreign correspondents left alive in Guatemala after over 100 journalists had been killed by army death squads.
A Note From the Publisher
“A riveting thriller of murder, politics, and lies.” − London Broadcasting
“Tough and tense thriller.” − Manchester Evening News (UK)
“A high-octane story rife with action, from U.S. streets to Guatemalan jungles … Not surprisingly, the novel ends with a shock, one that might have a few readers gasping.” – Kirkus
“A terrifying depiction of one man’s battle against the CIA and Latin American death squads.” – BBC
“Vicious thriller of drugs and revolution in the wilds of Guatemala, with the adventurer hero, aided by a woman doctor, facing a crooked CIA agent.” − Liverpool Daily Post (UK)
“A riveting story where even the good guys are bad guys, set in the politically corrupt and drug infested world of present-day Central America.” − Middlesborough Evening Gazette (UK)
