SHANNON WHITFORD has always nurtured a love of music and rock concerts. The mother of two grown daughters, she lives in rural central Pennsylvania. This is her first book.
There has never been a deserter in Bas Adams' family - from the Somme to Vietnam. So when his brother, Jack, is reported missing from his peacekeeping contingent in Western Sahara, Bas knows he must be found. Their father demands it.
From Queensland's Lockyer Valley to the mountains of southern Algeria, Bas follows Jack's trail deep into the Sahara Desert, and into a world apart.
Nothing could prepare him for what he finds.
