Accurate historical account of Intelligence work in Vietnam
Great book. I had heard the audio tape but had to read the book. I served as a MACV advisor (Captain)with Team 44 in Gia Dinh 1969-1970, so I was able to identify with the idioyms and many of the places. I was trained in Combat Intelligence and worked in the Phoenix program part of my tour. The book is very accurate from my experience...it was like going back in time. I have no contact with Team 44 members now, but would like to (LT Calfee, LT Aragon, LT Richter, for example). Nelson: thanks for the gift you've given to history!

This was nothing at all like I expected. It was billed as a sequel to The General's Daughter. However, the setting in Vietnam takes over the book as does the experience of the hero who journeys from Saigon to Hanoi many years after the war is over. I think this is as close to Vietnam as I ever care to get, thank you very much. It was intense. I was in high school when the war ended. The shame of how we did that and what we did to our allies is pretty hard to bear, and the book is a reminder of that.<br><br>For all the background on the war and on the country that Vietnam has become which is in itself fascinating, it is a good page turner/thriller as you try to figure out exactly who and what the heroine is and why they have been sent on this journey.<br><br>I highly recommend it. My only criticism is the hero's wisecracking got a little old at times, but then that is often true of DeMille's male characters. It can be annoying. Still, an incredible read.Read full review

Nelson DeMille is my favorite writer. This is an excellent book. I read it once in paperback. Wanted the hard copy.

Nelson DeMille is a great story teller, you will have a good read on this title for sure. The plot line involves an ex-Viet Nam vet going back to Nam to find clues to a murder plot of an Army lieutenant and all the perils therein. Find it and read it.

This is a story about Vietnam 30 years later. It took me back to remember what I wanted to forget but did it in such a way as to make an interesting story. The plot is good but the descriptions of the areas the story visited is excellent. No pulled punches in this book. Just as I remembered a lot of what really went on.
