Marcus goes to war-torn Peru for one reason: to take home the woman he’s loved since his Peace Corps days — Marisa with the long dark hair and sparkling blue eyes. But when he arrives in Lima, he’s confronted by a general with a subpoena, agents with guns, and the startling accusation that she’s a key figure in one of the most bizarre terrorist movements in the world — and they want his help in bringing her to justice. His refusal to cooperate makes him a suspect as well, and he’s soon on the run, desperate to get her out of Peru. Is she the Marisa of his dreams, or is she the bomb-throwing terrorist on her wanted posters? The truth lies somewhere down the road, and nothing is going to stop Marcus from finding it — not the soldiers who dog his every step, not the terrorists who think he’s on their side, and not the hostile natives and witches who chase him through the eastern jungles.
