I am a Cambodian war orphan. Historians paint history in black and white. Writers are the historians of emotions.

Younger generations may not understand what happened. Its very important that they should know. Sunset in Paradise is the first book of a trilogy. Eight-year-old Komsot-Vezna Sokk was from a wealthy family. The soft-spoken boy had everything in life: the love of his parents, immediate and close family members, friends, plus great hopes for the future. On April 17, 1975, the satanic Khmer Rouges, led by Pol Pot, evacuated the entire population of Cambodias capital city, Phnom Penh City, at gunpoint.

More than one million of seven million Cambodians were annihilated, due to starvation, forced labor, torture, imprisonment, and indiscriminate killings. The Killing Fields of Cambodia have been likened to the Inquisition and the Holocaust. More than 85 percent of Cambodias intellectuals, the backbone of the fledgling nation, were mercilessly murdered. To the psychotic and sadistic Khmer Rouges, Komsot-Vezna and his family members were the Roumdohs (the Liberated People). His parents, baby sister, and countrymen were taken to prison, and afterward murdered without trial or mercy.

Thirty years later, a gentle voice is heard speaking about this cruelty that is beyond comprehension. This book was written so humanity may transcend evil. Bo K.S. Uce graduated from Dartmouth College and is a professional court interpreter and part-time law student. He has developed micro-businesses for his cousins and relatives still in Takok Village, Cambodia. He lives with his wife and two daughters in Long Beach, California.
