Some stories take generations to unfold. Gabriel Clarke has the River in his blood: The River that he loved as a child. The River that took his father, John. The River he feared, fled...and has come back to now. Jacob Fielding owes the last twenty years of his life to John Clarke—the stranger who drowned saving him and his brother from their own boyish recklessness. Since that day Jacob's gratitude has extended to everyone around him...especially Gabriel, that brave man's son. But while the death of John Clarke became a powerful force for good in Jacob, it has been an unshakable source of darkness in another man. When gratitude and guilt meet at the River two decades after that fateful day, Gabriel finds himself face to face with a stark choice for his own future: anger or forgiveness, hatred or love, death or life. So much more than an allegory, Into the Canyon will inspire you to love deeply, forgive extravagantly, and live large.

At first, what happened on the Mekong River on October 5, 2011 seemed like a simple matter of rough frontier justice. A detachment of Thai military commandos reported that they had confronted a band of drug runners smuggling methamphetamines out of the Golden Triangle, the famously lawless borderlands between Burma, Laos, and Thailand. A gunfight ensued, the smugglers fled, and the commandos seized two barges and a haul of nearly a million pills. The story appeared to be over-until the bodies started washing ashore. There were thirteen of them, all Chinese merchant mariners-not hardened criminals. And they appeared to have been executed in cold blood. It was the largest massacre of Chinese civilians outside of China in over half a century, and Beijing quickly named the culprit: Naw Kham, a mysterious former guerrilla warrior turned river pirate who had haunted the Golden Triangle for years. Regarded as a feared terrorist by some and a local Robin Hood by others, Naw Kham was undoubtedly a skilled criminal-but was he a mass murderer? In Murder on the Mekong, Jeff Howe travels to the scene of the crime that transfixed East Asia and finds a tale of adventure, deception, and political intrigue. Reporting supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Howe.
