Overview

In the mountains of Colombia, an old man stumbles sweating and breathless into the Jaguar Forest. Cursed, he feels forced to commit a savage act, and a family is destroyed – his own. From Luis Mendoza’s insanity survivors emerge, but they will not know what their grandfather intended for them, even though they were the ones destined to die. Decades later, veteran reporter Jack Doyle is about to become his network’s next anchor star. Doyle has always done his job the right way, and when eight girls, including a US senator’s daughter, are brutally murdered, Doyle discovers a trail of blood and drugs that leads to Colombia. It’s where the story is, even if his network bosses don’t agree. Colombia is a country on fire and la violencia means no one is safe, including Doyle and his producer, the beautiful Kaitlin O’Rourke. Narco-terrorists strike. Doyle comes home. Kaitlin doesn’t. With his career and life adrift, Doyle struggles with the blame for his renegade assignment. Kaitlin was his friend. Possibly much more. Trying to rescue his soul, Jack sets sail. Alone and faltering on the Atlantic Ocean, he receives an astonishing message so bizarre it sets in motion his most dangerous assignment – a covert mission through the blood-soaked Colombian jungle to find a woman who stepped away at dinner and never came back. Doyle is plunged into a story of deception, betrayal, and a drug lord’s insane plan to deliver an apocalyptic message to the White House. To stay alive, Doyle must confront his past and untangle his future. And before it’s too late, he must uncover the unbelievable truth about Kaitlin O’Rourke and the Angels of Maradona.
