A BIG CITY COP GOES TO THAILAND TO FIND HIS SON'S KILLER. ..".superb story-teller; ...remarkably authentic dialog...visceral physical settings ...a great read."-Luci Shaw, author of "Adventure of Ascent: Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey"; winner of the Denise Levertov Award for Creative Writing. Retired Vancouver Police officer Sam Watson has little use for religion. When his only son, Jeff, commits to missionary service in Thailand, Sam is understandably upset. An uneasy long distance relationship continues until the unthinkable happens, Jeff is murdered. The mission organization wants nothing to do with the investigation and the Thai Police seem unable or unwilling to solve the crime. Sam finds himself in Thailand seeking his son's killer but also grappling with loss, culture shock and, ultimately, the meaning of his son's short life. ..".weaves together details to make an exotic locale vivid, while keeping the story moving briskly...never preaches, and avoids cheap sentiment, making for a satisfying read."-Larry Matthews, writer & editor, Toronto, ON. ..". deeply convincing...gritty feel of truth... wrestles with...right and wrong, faith and doubt, justice and evil..."-Loren Wilkinson, Prof of Philosophy & Interdisciplinary Studies, Regent College, University of British Columbia. "A comparison with Graham Greene comes to mind-for the clarity of the prose, exotic locale, noir ambience, dead-center dialogue, complexity of characterization, and most of all for spiritual dimension...." Michael Mason, author of "The Blue Umbrella"and "The Mystery of Marriage."
