This fast-paced debut thriller moves between Southern California and the rain forests of Central America as Luke McKenna, a doctor with an enigmatic past, searches for the cause of a Mayan boy’s death. What he uncovers instead are signs of a global conspiracy with overtones of medical mayhem and murderous enemies he must evade.

The author is a pediatrician in Los Angeles who has done volunteer work among remote Indian tribes in Central America.
