Deep in the Amazon, a plane crash brings botanist, Kitarna Ashford and ex-sniper, Jack Callaghan together under chilling circumstances. Although attracted, both guard secrets that could well destroy their tenuous bond.
Kitarna came to Brazil to join her sister’s archaeological dig, and prove her worth to peers. Her dream ends after receiving a harrowing message from their father, a United States Governor. Running from an unknown enemy, the sisters board the first flight out. It’s a decision they soon regret.
Separated from her sister, Kitarna has no choice but to follow a ruggedly handsome Australian, who makes it clear he’s not interested, although his actions tell another story. Using her botanical knowledge, she must trust Jack, as together they lead eleven adults and one endearing child through inhospitable jungle.
Haunted by a mission that went terribly wrong, Jack needed one last job to fund his disappearance into the Caribbean sunset, where he can battle his demons alone. Now he's stranded in the jungle, and once again, innocent lives depend on him.
Evading deadly predators and poisonous plants is the least of their worries. Mercenaries set on extortion, revenge and murder, are hunting them. Animosity becomes rife among the survivors as truths are exposed, along with treachery and betrayal. Kitarna and Jack must combine their unique skills to survive both the jungle and those who seek to hurt them.
