An exciting, action packed story of a U.S. Air Force veteran who puts his heart into trying to help his fellow pilots in Belize overcome the corruption that trapped them to inescapable poverty at the peril of his life. The writing style pulls the reader right into the story with colorful descriptions of the people and the environment in which they live. A great read!
