With her resources dwindling and time running out, only one man comes cheap enough and is skilled enough to take her deeper into the savage reaches of the Great Green Hell known as the Amazon. A ROGUE SCIENTISTWilliam Sanchez Travers has macaw feathers tied in his hair, a week's worth of beard, and a shaman's crystal hanging around his neck, convincing Annie that even the wildest stories she's heard about him don't tell the tale. A Harvard-trained botanist, the once world-renowned professor lost his reputation - and some say his mind - when he vanished from his camp on the Rio Cauaburi and disappeared for a year in the forest. Now he's back, in a seedy waterfront bar with a beer in his hand and a mulatto woman doing the lambada on his lap - and against every ounce of common sense she has, Annie's about to make him a deal.ONCE THEIR JOURNEY BEGINS, THERE'S NO TURNING BACKThe last thing Will needs is a woman whose secrets run as deep and dark as his own. A renegade in her own right, the legendary Amazon Annie is a magnet for trouble - and he's already got plenty. He's out to destroy a devil named Corisco Vargas, before the twisted army major can unleash his nightmarish forces on the whole of the Amazon. Trapped between a shaman's mystical visions and the violence of the real world, their journey quickly becomes one of desperate danger. But which force will rule their fate - justice, vengeance, or a power as potent and seductive as the Amazon itself?."-- Provided by publisher.
