- Pub. Date:
It's election day in Haiti. The first free and clean elections in over thirty years. When the president's goons attack an election site and massacre voters and observers, Hilton Greene barely escapes with his life. But there was evidence, a videotape made, and Hilton Greene--veteran reporter--wants it.
In exchange he agrees to take the filmmakers child to America, a risk worth taking for a Pulitzer worthy piece of video, and, boy and video in hand, they begin a desperate 24 hour escape in an attempt to get themselves and the video out of Haiti, before the police catch them.

About the Author
Steven Jacob is a man who likes adventure . . . at least on paper. He spent ten years living in Southeast Asia, working as a lawyer and consultant. Spending much of his time immersed in books and booze, he gave himself an autodidact's education on the region. He also got to know the laws and cultures through study and experience. He is an expert on Indochina. He was educated in Utah and California, and is now sober for several months. (It interferes with his medications.) He likes to go crazy in Asia, where he's had a psychotic break in Vietnam--twice--and once in Cambodia. But his mental health is not the full Monty. He became a writer in elementary school shortly after discovering Isaac Asimov, though he has since moved past a reading diet of pure sci-fi and fantasy. Now he reads a diet of history, award winners, and thrillers. He believes that you have to read the fiction to write the fiction, so that's what he does.
