A thriller going well beyond the genre, "Candyman's War" is narrated from within the history of the most violent civil war of the Americas. The story depicts Candyman's transformation from
a grad student to guerrilla and, following his "war," to something else entirely. He is already an enigma when we meet him at the border with Mexico. A Q’echi Mayan, an evangelical Christian and a scientist, he returns home to find a site for botanical
research. Radicalized by what he finds in the indigenous villages he leaves then returns to Guatemala. The decision puts him into the center of the struggle with unplanned consequences for himself and the ruling junta. The story is told years after by his
closest friends in Monteverde, Costa Rica.
