The Syrian and The Priceless Ransom

Beirut: 1983. The Archbishop of Tyre, Joseph Khouri, has just been kidnapped; his driver, shot and left for dead. Most lines of communications in war-torn Lebanon are down. Still, news of the murder and abduction reaches the Vatican in less than two hours. The ransom demanded is sizeable; the time limit, three days.

An Optical Conclusion

Tijuana, Baja California: 2008

Two young strangers, Brett Carpenter and Guadalajara lawyer Evangelina “Eva” Marquez connect through a revolutionary social media platform.
