Summer of 2022
Professor Luke Shannon’s study mission to Brazil takes an ominous turn. Tatiana, a fiery student with indigenous roots, has a secret agenda. She seeks the killers of her cousin, “the guardian of the forest,” assassinated on All Saints Day 2019. Teaming up with a veteran reporter in the Amazon, they press hard to discover the truth.
Those in power feel threatened and push back. A Colombian drug lord enters the fray, taking Tatiana, Luke and the journalist down a dangerous path. São Paulo’s crime syndicate and Big Ag interests play for keeps. They’ll eliminate anyone who gets in their way. Who will prevail?
Note:Reporter Dom Phillips and indigenist Bruno Pereira disappeared deep in the Amazon jungle on June 5, 2022. Thanks to local villagers, the Federal Police arrested several suspects. But who ordered their murder? Brazilian Odyssey is dedicated to them.
