The Sunset Watcher
Peter is devastated when he learns of his half-brother’s murder in Colombia, but is determined to seek out those who knew him and learn the context of his last days. Peter’s experience as a bright young accountant in Ottawa does little to prepare him for the dangerous and turbulent world he confronts.
In Colombia he encounters drug cartels and right wing death squads, but he is helped by a renegade Quebec priest, a Colombian military officer who was also a Korean War hero, a beautiful social worker, a street kid and his dog and many others. When Peter finally returns to Ottawa, he has a greater appreciation of his half-brother’s character and a better understanding of himself.
The experience changes his life.
