Peru is a country of thrilling views. Machu Picchu, perhaps the most famous, is awesome—a wonder on a clear day, mystical in the fog and rain, and heart-stoppingly magical under a starry sky. However, it has often been written about, so I set my story elsewhere. With so many fascinating sites along the coast, through the mountains, and on to the Amazon jungle, I had lots of great choices. Since I’m a ruin junkie, I chose the crumbling Moche fortress-pyramids built in the desert for PASSION, PERIL, PERU. The Sun and Moon pyramids exist, the Stars pyramid is the author’s imaginative addition.~ Eve Dew Crook
