Read full description of the books:
A powerhouse new novel of tragedy, vengeance and redemption from the internationally bestselling author of A Walk Across the Sun and The Garden of Burning Sand—electrifying and moving, The Tears of Dark Water is a tour de force and Corban Addison's most powerful novel yet
November, 2011: Somali pirates hijack a sailboat in the Indian Ocean and take Americans Daniel Parker and his teenaged son, Quentin, as hostages. A tense standoff orchestrated by top US negotiator Paul Derrick ends in tragedy. The pirates are captured and extradited to stand trial in the United States, and a young man named Ismail is identified by his cohorts as the leader. Paul begins to suspect there is more to his story than zealotry and greed, but Ismail says little, fearing the truth will endanger the only person he has left in the world: his sister, Yasmin.
Derrick’s twin sister Megan, a criminal defense lawyer, takes Ismail’s case. Sharing her brother’s sense that there is a mystery to unravel, she begins an investigation that traces Ismail’s journey from Mogadishu to a Kenyan refugee camp to the large Somali immigrant community in Minneapolis.
Meanwhile, Quentin Parker’s mother, Vanessa, is wrestling with her future and her past, struggling to maintain hope in the midst of Quentin’s recovery and haunted by the letters Daniel sent her—one from every port—describing the love they had lost and might yet regain.
As the tension mounts, Ismail is desperate to find a way to save Yasmin’s future. But he must put everything on the line in order to tell the truth about the attack.
In his most ambitious and accomplished novel yet, Corban Addison has created a tale of pressing contemporary relevance, bringing together the compassionate storytelling, international scope and masterful orchestration of plot and suspense that have made his novels must-reads for fiction lovers around the world.

Read information about the authorCorban Addison holds degrees in law and engineering from the University of Virginia and California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. He began to experiment with writing at the age of fifteen, about the same time he developed an interest in international travel. His early works were mostly essays, reflections and travelogues, but his true love was fiction. For eight years he searched for a story with wings. In the end, the story found him.
In the summer of 2008, Addison’s wife gave him an idea that he found irresistible—a novel on the global trade in human beings. Despite the increasing demands of career and family, he embarked upon an odyssey that took him to India and Europe and into the corridors of power in Washington, D.C. In immersing himself in the world of modern-day slavery, he spent time with experts and activists in the field and went undercover into the brothels of Mumbai to meet trafficking victims firsthand.
Out of this journey, A Walk Across the Sun was born. It is a novel that brings together three of Addison’s great passions—storytelling, human rights, and the world and its cultures—in a narrative that enlightens while it entertains. Addison is a supporter of international justice causes, including the abolition of modern slavery, and he is committed to broadening this support through the publication of A Walk Across the Sun.
