Searching For Che is about a man’s quest to find a childhood friend somewhere in Latin America. This novel follows a high school teacher from school tragedy on the hallowed grounds of a New York prep school to the remotest pueblos of Latin America. Will Dunlop is a high school teacher at the end of his tenure. Distracted by his impending divorce, he takes the blame for a tragic school shooting by one of his students. To save his career, he must travel to Latin America to find a childhood friend: Amy Phipps. Amy is the estranged daughter of a wealthy New England family. Obsessed with Che Guevara, she ran away from home to follow the steps of the late revolutionary figure. Using cryptic letters she sent her mother, Will travels from Mexico to Cuba to Guatemala to Bolivia searching for the girl who does not wish to be found. As he travels from pueblo to pueblo, he begins to think he’s being followed. Could it be the same person following the Phipps girl in her letters? Or could it be the effects from the malaria pills that have been giving him such strange dreams?
