Charlie Marlowe is an award winning writer who has gone too far and offended too many people. He finds himself exiled in a tiny Central American country that time and the rest of the world have forgotten. And he has a price on his head. Before he can return to the civilized world and the good graces of his readers, he must journey into the heart of darkness and interview an almost mythical freelance missionary. But first he must survive the climate, the flora and fauna and the local cast of expatriate characters.
