Summary
Richard Welsh returns, now working as an aide to a U.S. Senator. Three U.S. Marine security guards are gunned down by unknown assailants at an outdoor cafe in Guatemala City, far from Afghanistan and the world's attention. Could it be terrorism, or backlash from the war on drugs? Welsh is sent down to Guatemala to investigate, for the most mundane of reasons: the father of one of the dead Marines was a major political contributor. No one expects him to find out anything, least of all himself. But, as soon as he arrives in Guatemala City, he falls into a series of discoveries, each one more disturbing than the last. The attack on the Marines seems to stretch from events as far back as the dirty guerrilla wars of the 80's to the mountains of drugs making their way along Central American pathways from Colombia to Mexico today. Circumstances force Welsh together with a mysterious American woman whose motives are unclear. She may be his ally, or she may regard him as a sacrificial pawn in pursuit of her own agenda. When the final crucial piece of information comes into Welsh's hands it will take every last bit of luck and skill for him to make it out of Guatemala alive. Because, strangely enough, it seems that as many people in Washington as in Guatemala want him dead. There are many jungles, from the tropical rainforest to Washington back rooms. But in each case the most dangerous predator is always the same
