This thrilling tale of revolution, espionage, and passion is set in the steamy jungles of South America and in the back corridors of power in Washington, DC. The balance of power in Spanish Guiana teeters precariously. The MAMistas, a group of Marxist revolutionaries, are willing to take any measures necessary to unseat the country's leader. But when oil is discovered in the region, the stakes in the already-vicious fight are raised, and a group of high-powered men in Washington becomes determined to keep the current government in place. Drawn into this world of secret alliances are a young Californian who is willing to fight for the cause he believes in; a doctor who acts on behalf of a relief organization; and a beautiful young woman who handles paperwork and a gun with the same cool efficiency. Together with a ransomed CIA agent, they must journey through the rain forest knowing that the future of the revolution is in their hands. What they don't know is if they will make it out alive or what awaits them if they do. A fine, fast-paced, multilayered thriller.Philadelphia Inquirer
