This book is quite boring. There is no action and it simply plods on and on at an elephants pace. I kept thinking that Susan was working for the enemy because her actions seemed fake. Overall, I couldn't finish the book.
bookworm_sub finds this "quite boring". Funny I enjoyed it enormously both from a plot and the characters and the dialog. However, I am a fan of DeMille. Different strokes ...
I found the descriptions of Vietnam fascinating. Excellent research for those of us who will never visit there, but only remember the name as a painful period of losing friends there.
I was captured by both the setting, then the plot. I have always liked Paul Brenner as a character.
It is about Paul Brenner, a U.S. military criminal investigator, who is forced out of retirement to investigate a murder in Vietnam that took place thirty years ago.
He was in Vietnam in the time of war now he is back after thirty years.
I agree with Susan M. For those of us who say "Vietnam was our war", it was arresting. I recommend "The Things They Carried" by O'Brien for those who thought this was very readable.
