In 2015, I walked the Camino de Santiago, the ancient 500-mile pilgrimage in northern Spain they call The Way. It was a mid-life crisis thing. As I hiked over the towering Pyrenees from France into Spain on the first day of a month-long journey, I started to wonder if it was a crazy thing. It was only when a woman from the United States went missing along the trail, feared murdered, that I was forced to consider if it was a dangerous thing as well.
This experience was the inspiration for my literary thriller, Petra’s Ghost, set on this ancient path to Santiago.
