Cupiditas: Evil's Root is a sequel to Michael Segedy's thriller/romance, In Deep. In this suspenseful story, a beautiful, young ex-CIA agent reunites with Steve Collins to solve the mystery to the murders of a U.S. senator, a Peruvian politician, and Peruvian journalist. Like In Deep, the mystery is full of twists and turns, full of romance and adventure, with dark underpinnings that show how powerful, ruthless, and narrowly focused political and corporate structures cast shadows over the lives of all of us.

Michael Segedy's novel Evil's Root (Cupiditas is included within) tells the story of Steve Collins, an expatriate American journalist living in Peru, who is investigating the death of a U.S. Senator who was allegedly killed by leftist-guerrillas. As he delves deeper into the story, Collins ventures into the jungles of Peru and becomes entangled in a web of schemes involving drug traffickers, guerrillas, diplomats, anti-terrorism operatives, and others who threaten to kill his story and perhaps, ultimately, him. Here is a seductive expatriate's tale, brimming with intrigue, politics, and humor.
