Scott Flores life implodes overnight. All that hes built-a promising career as a standout college professor, his reputation as a brilliant young anthropologist and a near perfect marriage to his beautiful wife-is leveled and none of his personal fortune can change what happens. Grappling with the devastating aftermath of tragedy and battling his own very personal demons, he finds himself on an airplane headed to southern Mexico and the city of Cuernavaca, at the desperate urging of his mentor, fellow anthropologist Jerry Dwyer. The chance for a new start at a fascinating archeological dig turns into the ultimate test of character when hes dragged into the shadowy underworld hidden behind Mexicos gritty charm. Its an invisible world of good versus evil, black-market smuggling, merciless criminals and murder-all punctuated by a corrupt legal system. Set in contemporary Mexico against the backdrop of a wildly-contested national election that touches Scotts life in ways he doesnt understand, Cuernavaca showcases the best and worst of a nation struggling to renew itself as Scott struggles to earn his own second chance.
