Tom Epperson’s powerful new novel, Roberto to the Dark Tower Came, is a breathtaking account of a South American journalist who’s been given ten days to leave the country under the threat of death, his stubborn pursuit of a story he’s willing to die for, and the horrifying and exhilarating events he encounters along the way. What better day for the official book trailer reveal than May 3rd: WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY.
“Every five days, on average, somewhere in the world, a journalist is murdered for being a journalist. Nine out of ten times, no one is prosecuted, creating an atmosphere of impunity that extends beyond death threats or violence. . . . Today, journalism is one of the most dangerous professions anywhere.” —October 30, 2017 Leon Willems, Director of Free Press Unlimited.
We hope you enjoy this stunning book trailer, filmed in the jungles of South America by film director Carlos Gaviria, and featuring Iván Lopez, who plays Roberto, and Estefania Pineres, who plays Lina. Don’t miss this important new novel by Tom Epperson!
