A deadly disease . . .
A village under siege . . .
A band of well-armed extremists . . .
And Logan Pierce, who just wants to sit around all day eating papaya.
After a short and problem-plagued career in environmental activism, Logan trades meaningful responsibility for self-imposed exile in the trackless rainforest jungles of Borneo. While enjoying a leisurely and indolent lifestyle, he is confronted with a deadly disease ravaging the isolated mountain villages. Forced into a new and unwanted role as leader of a desperate group of villagers and researchers, he's faced with life-threatening dangers, betrayal by close friends, a budding romantic relationship, and a fierce battle against a well-armed band of religious extremists. As he's led through a harrowing series of adventures, Logan discovers an ambition he's long been lacking, and a final willingness to take a stand for the people he cares for.
