about this item

A powerful new novel from the author of The Kind One and Sailor.

Roberto, a young left-wing South American journalist, receives an ominous phone call: leave the country in ten days, or die. Roberto is being targeted because of a series of articles he’s written exposing government corruption and violence at the highest levels. Roberto believes the voice on the other end of the phone and has every intention of leaving, as soon as he follows a lead on a major story developing in the jungle: thousands of innocent lives are at stake. The book follows him on his perilous journey into the heart of darkness in pursuit of his story. Unknowingly, Roberto is headed toward a confrontation with an evil darker than he could possibly have imagined.

The story of Roberto rolls out slowly and lies waiting like the jaguars that hide in the luscious, man-eating jungle Epperson so eloquently describes in this rich and haunting novel. With characters that live on, as well as an urgent political and ecological message, this often agonizingly sad and dark story is also filled with sunlight and love reminding us that horror and violence in the world are not only a product of greed and cruelty, but can also be born out of our need to protect those we love, to survive, and to keep our stories alive.
