«New York Times» bestselling and Pulitzer prize-winning author Philip Caputo began his writing career in 1968, when he joined the staff of the «Chicago Tribune,» serving as a general assignment and team investigative reporter until 1972. For the next five years, he was a foreign correspondent for that newspaper, stationed in Rome, Beirut, Saigon, and Moscow. In 1977, he left the paper to focus on writing books. Since then, he has written 16 books, including two memoirs, five books of nonfiction, and nine novels. Caputo has won 10 journalistic and literary awards. In «Some Rise by Sin,» his first novel since 2013, he tells the story of a Franciscan priest struggling to walk a moral path through the shifting and fatal realities of an isolated Mexican village. The story elements incorporate a brutal drug cartel, a vigilante group of townspeople, and the local police force, stirring up a volatile mix of forces for good and evil (and sometimes both).
