an excerpt from THE POWER & THE PLUNDER by Sean A’Hearn
Laura Manning pushed herself up. The concussion with the forest floor had stunned her. An exposed root had caught her foot. She stood still for several moments breathing deeply in the thick jungle air, before turning and stepping back toward her friend and bleeding fellow escapee, Jennifer Hoover.
“What’s the matter, Jen?” asked Laura Manning.
“I can’t … I can’t go on … sorry.”
Laura, only 18 but raised Texas-tough, grimaced. Returning to the brothel was a certain death sentence – either now or later. No! Returning was not an option!
She closed her mind to the dangers of their only option…but nighttime in the jungle was a fool’s bargain… the racing legs of the living barely kept a single stride in front of the snapping jaws of death. Every living creature had its attackers, even the jaguars, at the top of the food pyramid, could be stung to death by the highly aggressive Warrior Spiders…
But Laura knew that the most feared of all jungle inhabitants were the ‘proud green’…the ransacking soldiers of the powerful militia ‘generals’ who were in constant warfare against each other. They burned villages, captured the boys and young men, raped the women then hacked them down as they clutched their crying babies.
