The last thing Paul Brenner wanted to do was return to work for the Army's Criminal Investigative Division, an organization that thanked him for his many years of dedicated service by forcing him into early retirement. But when his former boss calls in a career's worth of favors, Paul finds himself investigating a murder that took place back in Vietnam thirty years before. Now, returning to a time and place that still haunts him, Paul is swept up in the battle of his life as he struggles to find justice.

Reviews

Paul Brenner, a retired army detective (previously featured in DeMille's The General's Daughter), is asked to return to Vietnam to look into a 30-year-old murder of a U.S. soldier at the hands of another. There seems to be an eyewitness, a North Vietnamese soldier, who is probably dead but who will certainly be nearly impossible to trace in a hostile, Third World police state. Oh, yes, the Tet holiday is going on, so the country is basically closed down. Also, Brenner suspects the witness he is to locate is scheduled for assassination rather than deposition and wonders why. He also wonders why Susan Weber, who contacts him with some vital information, keeps insinuating herself into his mission and his life. Concise this isn't, but DeMille offers several hooks for the listener a travelog, a veteran's coming to terms with his Vietnam service, one of those romances based mostly on witty banter and steamy sex, and the many obstacles Brenner must overcome to solve the case. Scott Brick emerges as a budding star, giving a nuanced reading that captures the author's characters. Most libraries will want this. John Hiett, Iowa City P.L.

A sequel to Demille's well known "The General's Daughter" sees Paul Brenner heading back to his old haunts of Vietnam. It really reads as a work important that's important for Demille and those who have been to Vietnam - as a novel, it's not terribly exciting. not one of Demille's best, but then I think he wrote this for reasons other than popular consumption. A journey back for Vietnam vets to make their peace, perhaps?
