The book A Search for a Son is about a very basic instinct: a parents concern for a child.

We think of the 500,000 parents in the First World war whose only information they got about their son’s death was “missing in action”. It leaves a deep curiosity and sadness, which never goes away.

With medical advances in the 20th & 21st century parents normally outlive their children.
And with electronic contacts, parents and children normally keep in some kind of contact.

But what if a child disappears?

And what if a child disappears 6 thousand miles away in impenetrable jungle and high mountains?

What if you can get no information about what happened?

That is the starting point of A Search for a Son.
