A story of love and loss, vengeance and death set during Guatemala's brutal thirty-six year Civil War. Espiritu, a young Mayan Shaman leaves the Highlands and makes his way to Guatemala City. There he builds a new life eventually becoming a Catholic priest. But Espiritu cannot give up his old beliefs nor his desire for revenge for past wrongs. His dual existence has dire consequences for those closest to him including Maria, a beautiful young Ladina with secrets she is afraid to share, and Earl Smith, an American on assignment in Guatemala for his government. As Earl, Maria, and Espiritu's lives intersect all three are caught in the extreme violence of war. Under the priest's influence Maria vows to seek justice for her losses. But is anyone what they seem? Can peace survive in the midst of war and hatred? Shaman Priest is based on historical events and packed with action.
