On an island off the coast of Mexico, former soldier of fortune Burr Whitman lives alone, studying butterflies. He hopes he has left behind a violent past, but the mysterious disappearance of a friend, and a lucrative new mission combine to lure him back into a world of intrigue and bloodshed.
Burr's mercenary company is hired to recapture an emerald mine from rebels, deep in the Colombian Amazon. It should be a straightforward operation, but in the jungle shadows, nothing is as it seems. Burr must contend with shifting alliances, betrayal in his own camp and the distractions presented by Leila Walcott, a doctor who is searching the jungle for medicinal plants.
As emerald fever grips the region, swept by rumours of the fabled lost city of El Verde, Marxist guerrillas, right-wing death squads and Indian tribes become locked in an increasingly bitter struggle for the forestâ€™s wealth. The carnage mounts until the very survival of the rainforest is at stake, and Burr Whitman finds himself fighting for much more than just a paycheque...
