In the arena of global trade and diplomacy, stakes are high, and when a senior official of the Panama Canal Administration is found dead, British-born geomatic engineer Max Burns, finds himself in the frame for sabotage and murder, and at the center of a web of political intrigue and betrayal that reaches far beyond the idyllic shores of Central America.


The only person Max can trust is his new-found love, beautiful Karis Deen, a scientist with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. Except Karis herself holds a dangerous secret that could not only destroy Max, but could change the entire balance of world power.
