While cleaning out a closet, I came across some old photos from my time in Panama. (Click on the photo to advance the carousel.) It reminded me of what a wonderful experience it was, although I don’t remember looking like a kid. As I’ve mentioned before, Death in Panama is loosely based on my experiences in Panama in the early 1980s. There were some really good times, as evidenced by the smile on my face in some of these pictures, but there were also some gut-wrenching emotional times. The murder trial, on which much of Death in Panama is loosely based, was one of those times.
By the way, the protagonist in Death in Panama, Robert E. Clark, is a lot more handsome than yours truly.
