The Jaguar’s Heart opens explosively during the assassination of a U.S. presidential candidate and takes the reader on a break-neck ride into the world of Sangre de Dios, a shadowy cult steeped in Aztec and Mayan mythology, sorcery and human sacrifice. The cult has subverted the highest levels of U.S. and Mexican government. The demonic leader of Sangre de Dios promises immortality for the chosen few and slavery for the rest of mankind when the end of an age, 2012, arrives.
Jesse J. Rideout, former covert operator now a fugitive and artifact smuggler, must undergo a mind-bending transformation to learn if Sangre de Dios leader’s apparent occult powers are real or the result or exotic hallucinogens. Katarina Castillo, daughter of the aristocracy, is Jesse’s partner in their desperate attempt to stop the cult. Facing unimaginable horror Kate discovers new depths of courage and assumes a role she had never imagined.
Sought by assassins, Federal police and covert agents, Jesse and Kate’s quest takes them from the mansions of the ultra rich to Indian villages, to ancient temples overgrown by jungle and into the heart of the Aztec underworld. First friends, then partners, finally lovers, their love affair is challenged by the shattering experiences they undergo. Only together can they destroy an ancient horror and avert a war between the United States and Mexico - their only allies a few members of the secretive Society of the White Rose - sworn enemy of Sangre de Dios.
