Paty Jagerabout this book: This book was inspired by a desire to write a true action adventure set outside the United States. Isabella Mumphrey is a genius who received her doctorate in anthropology at the age of twenty-two, idolizes Indiana Jones, had a pet cockatoo, and has a near photographic memory. She's lured to Guatemala by the desire to keep her anthropology department open. Once she arrives in the jungle she realizes she is out of her element and smack in the middle of drug trafficking, artifact thieves, and a Mayan ceremony that not only could have been the downfall of the Mayans but could be her end as well.
To add more conflict and a bit of romance, DEA agent Augustino Konstantine is pretending to be a guide and track jaguars. His real mission is to find the routes taken by drug runners and his own personal mission to bring down the drug lord who killed his family. But once Isabella enters his life, his perception on things changes and he discovers his heart hasn't turned to stone.
Making friends with a Guatemalan and having her input on this books was essential to making it ring true since my husband wouldn't let me travel to the area and look around.
