Review by: Harvelll on July 21, 2017 :
Mark Giglio really draws you into the isolation of this Peruvian location and the interesting characters. I was fascinated by the leopard and the interplay of reality and the spirit world. The tension of the relationship dynamics and the journey to escape kept my interest all the way to the end. Highly recommend.

Review by: George Henry on July 13, 2017 :
A heady cocktail of love, lust, revenge and the mystical in the Amazon jungle!

Imagine yourself fleeing a broken romance with a married woman who may be pregnant with your child to become entangled with the unhappy wife of a domineering and dangerously volatile husband. This is the nerve-wracking situation Emilio, an engineer, finds himself in when he takes on a project deep in the Peruvian jungle that Mark Giglio paints so vividly the reader will be immersed in its vines, canopy of trees, animal life, waterfalls and pools. Add a liberal dash of Amazon Indian mysticism and the spice of the husband’s unexpected request and the reader has a heady cocktail of human relationships and magical realism to swallow. Mark Giglio invites you into a world where the rationale meets the mystical with explosive results. You won’t be disappointed.

This book immediately puts you in a deep green sticky humid jungle. I have never been in a jungle but could imagine myself batting insects and sweating along with Emilio. The plantation is isolated and otherworldly where anything seems possible . The ending was vivid and satisfying where the lovers actually survive the dangers of quicksand, snakes and a crazed husband. This is a good read
