A spill in the rapids hauls two strangers into a harrowing adventure.
Chuck Borgas is ready to get back in the jungle. A lost city and a team of archeological students are waiting for him in Guatemala. He is waylaid at the airport by a bizarre woman who latches onto him like they are long-lost buddies. Finally ditching the stranger, he realizes she has left a bag behind. One glimpse into that sack and Chuck knows he has stepped into a heap of trouble.
Faith Sanders is part of a small task force returning smuggled artifacts to the Guatemalan government. Her team is ambushed by members of a drug cartel, but she manages to escape. Alone and determined to get the artifacts to their destination, she is forced to improvise as the cartel closes in on her.
Realizing that she has jeopardized the stranger at the airport, Faith has to decide what is more important…saving his life, or completing her mission.
