Winner! The 2006 L. Arnold Weissberger Award
It is three years since Lynne and Benjamin Montgomery's son, Ben, traveled to the Central American country of Cartuga in order to use his medical training to help the poor peasants. Soon after his arrival, Ben disappeared. In a country of civil strife, guerillas and mass executions by the army, that can mean only one thing -- he was killed. So when Bishop Melinda calls to invite the Montgomerys to take part in the historic Cartuga Truth and Reconciliation Commission, they fly down to Central America to find out what happened to their son.
