Harry decides to bail on the presidents offer, his career, and his keeping up-with-the-Joneses suburban life. He hijacks a plane, reinvents himself as Harry Kraft, and sets out to live an extraordinary new life of action and adventure, set against the tumultuous halfway point of the American Century.

Harry fetches up in the hazy tropical heat of Guatemala, a sleepy dictatorship under the thumb of the American U.S. Fruit Corporation and run by a shaky president besieged by rumblings of popular uprisings and military coups. Here hes content to fly cargo planes for small-time smugglers and enjoy the local attractions, but he cant escape the land he fled from, particularly when the C.I.A., the army, communist agitators, the presidents wife and U.S.

Fruit all seem to be conspiring to try to kill him
