(From the publisher):
Political fundraiser Draper Haere is on a quest to uncover the secret behind a right-wing coup in an unnamed Central American country. Haere seeks the information in order to get dirt on his boss's opponent in the 1984 US Presidential election. Haere's pursuit of the truth repeatedly puts Haere's life in danger, as the powers-that-be stop at nothing to keep the episode buried. Along the way, Haere carries on an affair with the wife of his candidate and enlists the aid of Morgan Citron, an almost-Pulitzer winning journalist who has recently been released from an African prison where the prisoners were fed human flesh, the titular missionary stew. Together Citron and Haere face up against cocaine traffickers, Latin American generals, corrupt US officials, and Citron's estranged, tabloid-publisher mother.
