There is an anomaly in the Amazon rain forest. Several unexplained deaths and a resistance to every form of surveillance technology known to man cannot penetrate the affected area. The Brazilian government allows a team of European scientists into the mysterious grove to investigate, guarded by members of the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service. Sam Harridan, the security team's leader, has explicit instructions to find the cause and extract it for U.S. National Intelligence to study. Meanwhile, an elite team of Chinese commandos is trying to beat them to the prize and they have orders from Beijing to be as ruthless as necessary to acquire it. A defrocked priest has his own interests in the phenomenon, and if he gets there first, it could change life on earth forever. The problem for them all is the jungle seems dedicated in keeping its secret from all comers....no matter what it costs in lives.
