Jan de Santiago is not only a billionaire coco grower but also a deranged revolutionary and the commander of the most powerful army in South America. Backed by rogue nations who supply him with the latest weaponry, de Santiago devises a plan that will dishearten the American anti-drug effort and make him El Jefe once and for all. Tom Kincaid was an expert on Colombia whose connections went to de Santiago himself. But when US politicians demand a publicity-drive drug bust, they blow Kincaid's network, leaving most of his informants dead, and get the DEA agent exiled to the relative backwaters of Seattle, a city soon to be a major drop-off point for de Santiago's drug empire.
