The Woman Who Lost Her Soul
This novel spans five decades and three continents; it traces a global lineage of political, cultural, and personal tumult from World War II to the present. During a time of brutal guerrilla warfare and civilian kidnappings, the humanitarian lawyer Tom Harrington travels to Haiti to investigate the murder of a beautiful, seductive photojournalist, Jackie Scott. There he is confronted with a dangerous landscape of poverty, corruption, and voodoo. The story brings to life an intricate portrait of catastrophic events that led up to the war on terror and the America we are today.
