9781490712505: Focus: A Novel

While attending the Henley Royal Regatta in England, Samantha Norquist, an American photojournalist, inadvertently overhears three men plotting to illicitly ship weapons to the Congo. Her photographs of Che Guevara had garnered her international recognition and now this secret information would alter her career in Europe and catapult her into a wild and dangerous assignment in Central Africa. The story follows gunrunners on the shark-infested Zambezi River and across the Rhodesian savanna with its profusion of animals and birds. Focus is a tale of love, joy, greed and malice. It transports the reader through the turbulent years of 1960-1961 in Europe and Africa and ends with an event that stuns the world.

About the Author:

On a dare from my children, I wrote a memoir (Yesterday) of my early years. I attempted to expose them, and their children, to the Great Depression years, the WWII, and the compliant decade that followed. Writing about the years after I turned twenty-five became tenuous as now I was exposing people who are alive and might object to my stories' skew. So I switched to fiction and settled on a trilogy that would encompass the turbulent sixties, a fascinating decade during which I lived in Singapore and London. Extensive travel in Southeast Asia and in Europe formed the background for the first two novels (Counterpoint and Focus). My Swedish wife, Marianne, and I now live at the north end of Lake Tahoe where we enjoy nature in its perfect form, as well as skiing, biking, hiking, and kayaking. We cook, garden, and read and critique each other's writing. Five children are spread around the country doing interesting things.
