Overview

Since before the Panama Canal was constructed, America has enjoyed a strong presence throughout Latin America. With military spending cuts and focusing more on the Middle East and the Balkans, this stabilizing presence has been critically reduced. The once dominant Southern Command is now headquartered in Florida. The region below the Rio Grande is ripe for widespread revolution: peasant uprisings in Mexico; civil war in Guatemala; 30,000 demobilized soldiers and guerrillas in El Salvador; border disputes with Honduras; riots in Nicaragua; heavy rebel fighting along the Colombian and Panamanian border; rampant drug smuggling with drug lords protected by armies of mercenaries.

As the U.S. has pulled out, the Japanese have quietly moved in, buying up mineral rights from Mexico to Venezuela. Potentially rich oil fields have been discovered that could make its owners completely independent of Western trade, not to mention immense wealth and power. Out of the flames of the invasion of Panama, one conspiracy was destroyed. But now, it is about to come full circle.

What a great book! His style has you on the edge wondering what is going to happen next...he guides you with seeds of information leaving your comprehension your own. That is a good writer. I am anxious for book two!

I've lived in Central America before and Timothy Davis captures what it's really like, especailly during a civil war.

I read a preview of this book before it came out, and it is one of the best books I've read in a long time. It has an outstanding plot, well-defined characters, and the storyline is nothing but fierce reality. I commend Timothy G. Davis for his creativity and illustrative use of words. He has an immense knowledge about the world we live in, and I hope he writes more novels in the future. I was captivated by the uniqueness of the novel, and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys great literature.
