Jamie, Charlie and their dog, Star, join their Uncle Max on a trip to Homer, Alaska to attend a global warming symposium. It was a much-anticipated vacation to the ‘last frontier’ and becomes everything but a vacation. The small town of Homer lies at the tip of the Kenai Peninsula. The town’s social structure is made up of fishermen, artists, tourists and unfortunately a few unscrupulous people who cause the death of the symposium organizer and the wounding of an Alaskan State trooper. There are lots of twists and a few surprises in Homer: The Disappearing Man.
