Some say Jack Carver settled in Micronesia because he was running away from his past. Even though a dishonourable discharge and a price on your head does make earning an honest living pretty tricky, "obstacle" was not a word in Jack's vocabulary.
It took several years and fair few boat trips, but eventually Jack developed a taste for the simple life. Maybe this is why he didn't smell the trouble when Val Cortez appeared on the dock with cameras and swimsuit and a day-pack full of cash. And the smell became no stronger when she asked him for a ride to the Jacutan islands, a remote archipelago that is not known as a local picnic destination.
Jack's boat and livelihood are now but a charred pile of toothpicks. To cap it all, his client has disappeared and no matter where he goes there are psychopaths in fatigues intent on shooting at him, blowing him up or running him over. Jack has this uncanny feeling that he is cornered in a merciless yet beautiful tropical jungle and that violent death is just a coconut away.
Jack's choice is this: Either embrace the wilderness and make its brutality his own. Or marvel at the beauty and face extinction up the barrel of a mercenary gun.
