Night of the Jaguar
Deep in the jungles of Colombia, an American priest is shot dead in his makeshift church. A few weeks later, an Indian shaman arrives in south Florida, armed only with a bag of totems and the fearsome power of Jaguar, his god. When affluent Cuban-American businessmen begin dying in gruesome fashion, seemingly eaten alive by a massive jungle cat, Miami's resident expert on the deeply weird, Jimmy Paz is called out of his self-imposed retirement to find the killer. However, Paz has problems of his own: he and his seven-year-old daughter Amelia are both haunted by dreams of Jaguar, who has come to take her as a sacrifice. To save his daughter and stop the murders, Paz will have to reach into the deepest corners of his soul.
