A Flag for Sunrise is a novel of Americans drawn into the maelstrom of Tecan, a small Central American country on the brink of revolution. At a mission on the coast a priest is lapsing into alcoholic mysticism, while a young American nun is veering towards commitment to the cause. In a bar in Brooklyn, Frank Holliwell is lunching with an old CIA friend who is begging for a favor. On the Tex-Mex border, Pablo, a Coast Guard deserter, loco on speed, is about to take a job carrying mysterious contraband to Tecan. As these lives converge, as this small, crowded world erupts, the novel builds to an electrifying climax.

Professional reviews

"Perhaps Stone's best and most celebrated novel to date, A FLAG FOR SUNRISE brings readers to the hotbed of Tecan, an imaginary Central American country on the cusp of revolution. From start to finish, this novel is one intense scene after another of corporate corruption and abject poverty amid a complex plot. Narrator Stephen Lang gives realism to the story, offering true-to-form characters, each as complicated and deliciously underhanded as the last. Lang's vocal range is remarkable as he tackles a variety of Central and South American accents with dramatic effect. The result is a voyage so compelling that listeners may find themselves lost for hours at a time. L.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
