Finalist Next Generation Indie Book Awards: First Novel over 80,000 words. A gripping murder mystery about three men meeting in the jungle to disastrous results. Oliver, a junior banker, is seeking answers about the death of his father, Johan, but uncovers more than he bargains for. Captain Christmas leads a murderous community of armed men, women, and children, hiding from justice in the forest. Young Davey is unemployed, fanatical about guns and sees a worldwide conspiracy in the disarmament of Christmas' group, which Johan had organized in an attempt to balance peace and justice. On a dare, Davey travels overseas to stop the disarmament. Their meeting, moral struggles, and the surrounding events cause each of them to lose something of consequence: illusion, conviction, or life itself.
