This book would make an excellent movie. It has all the classic elements of a thriller and action movie and would certainly be received by today's moviegoing and DVD buying public with gusto. Political intrigue, action, brief nasty fights, intransigent Vietnamese officials, romance, a likeable protaganist in the Paul Brenner character.......... someone like George Clooney would be ideal, coupled with a woman of mystery and intelligence....well, you get the point. Great book. Highly recommended.
