Luz Concepcion returns to Guatemala to murder Martin
Benavides, the man who destroyed her family. Benavides,
who rose from insurgent fighter to president, controls a
major drug network. Robert Clement became Luzâ€™s
resettlement officer when she was evacuated to the U.S.
He now works for the CIA, which has its own reasons for
eliminating Benavides. Robertâ€™s team persuades Luz to
pursue a job as nanny to Benavidesâ€™ grandson, Cesar, a
lonely child with an absentee playboy father. The
Guatemala contact for her mission is Evan McManus, an
expat painter who pursues Luz, hoping to persuade her to
model for himâ€”and more. Luz initially spurns his
advances, but her first terrifying encounter with Martin
Benavides propels her into his arms. Complicating
matters, Luz conceals from all sides her clandestine
contact with her surviving cousin, Antonio Torres, a
guerrilla leader fighting the government propped up by
the Benavides and their drug money. Her plans unravel as,
bit by bit, Luz learns that nothing is as it seemsâ€”and no
one is telling the whole truth.
