Thomas C. McCollum III lives between Charlottesville, VA., San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, and various golf courses around the world. He is the author of three other novels - Whipsocket - Tainted Blood - Palmer Lake.Review:
"Thomas McCollum has delivered a book of operatic proportions...a tale full of intrigue that tempts us to explore the what ifs of life and the possibility of encountering one profound love. Whether he is delighting pygmies with donuts or sharing his smuggled discoveries along the way, Uncle Norm is a warm, comical hero deeply connected to his fellow lost soul in the Congo, Ottobah Cuguano, and their shared faith in everlasting friendship. As they strive to break down racial barriers and transform the world, their adventures amaze the restless traveler in all of us. This timely piece is a declaration that we each have the choice to leave behind a better place than we found." --Christopher Feigum, Grammy Award winner and Metropoitan Opera Singer
"I have read hundreds of scripts and novels in my 33 years of being an agent. This is an incredible adventure that could be made into an epic film not unlike, "The Man Who Would be King." --Joe Kolkowitz, Players Talent Agency
"...an interesting thriller...McCollum makes the adventure authentic." --Publishers Weekly
