After witnessing a bloody uprising in Kenya, Craig Stevens decides to accept an ex-girlfriend's offer to clear his head at her house in Belize. But he isn't there simply to enjoy her company and see the rainforest---he also plans to search for a hidden fortune: two million in gold coins he learned about from a tourist in Kenya, right before the man was killed by a barrage of bullets.

Craig soon finds out that he isn't the only one seeking the gold. The woman Craig had been romancing in Kenya, and a brutal ex-mercenary recently released from a South African jail, are among those also looking for the treasure. The search proves dangerous---and not everyone is going to get out of Belize alive.
