Washington, DC attorney Craig Malcault is deep in trouble with superiors who prey on his gay identity. A flamboyant introvert who excels at investigations, Craig was reared on the heyday of the human rights evolution and will go to any lengths for his clients. He is sensitive to criminal networks and evanescent Big Powers that act in a supporting role, and now his skills are just too perfect for his own good. Hurriedly dispatched on a secret mission to an impoverished Latin American country, he faces the nightmare of villainous aspirants to power ensnaring the zeal of one good courageous friend, JC. Slowly but surely, Craig realizes he is being pulled into a spiral of rumbunctious characters and events with an endgame to discredit his work. Its population kept in the dark, the country is teetering on the brink of war, and it is up to Craig to disentangle the many threads.
