Marika Vecera is a young war reporter, recently back from the Congo and venturing into the first serious relationship of her life, when she hears the news that Robert Lewis has committed suicide. Lewis was a famous war correspondent and a hero to Marika, and as she begins working on his biography she gets word from a missionary who claims to have seen Lewis alive. Astounded, Marika uproots her life in Boston and heads to Papua New Guinea--the world's least explored frontier--to uncover the truth. Encountering all the dangers of jungle travel and the haunting mythology of native tribes, Marika's search for Lewis becomes an unforgettable journey into the depths of the human soul.

About the Author:

KIRA SALAK is a contributing editor for National Geographic Adventure. She lives in Montana.

From AudioFile:

This gripping first novel involves a young female journalist, Marika Vecera, who travels to remote and dangerous places--from the war-torn Congo to the jungles of Papua New Guinea. Joyce Bean voices a wide range of multiethnic characters and regional accents, Pidgin English, and English accents. She expresses the emotions of the fast-paced prose without neglecting the building tension of the story. Marika's search for a Pulitzer Prize-winning correspondent, who's supposed to have died but who she believes may well be alive, and Salak's descriptions of jungle life are riveting. Harrowing, unforgettable scenes--some depicting torture--are difficult to listen to, but the story will keep listeners engaged. S.C.A. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
