Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback — Nelson DeMille's New York Times bestseller that brings back Paul Brenner, the Army investigator from The General's Daughter, in a sensational novel of suspense.

Synopsis:

Retired army homicide investigator Paul Brenner is asked by his former commanding officer to investigate a murder that took place in wartime Vietnam. Back in Vietnam, Brenner is plunged into a world of corruption and thrust back into a war that never ended.

Little Nan, September 20, 2011 (view all comments by Little Nan)
Nelson Demille has to be one of the best authors ever. I have read several of his books and he always comes through with a great story. Since I am from the generation of young men who had to fight in the Vietnam war, this was especially of interest to me. The author brings back a favorite character from The General's Daughter, Paul Brenner. This too is part of the reason I always come back to DeMille. Just love these characters with good sarcastic sense of humor and tell it like it is, no matter who he offends, including the Communist leaders in Vietnam. This was a fascinating read with Brenner on the case trying to solve a murder which happened during the war, but committed by our own troops. This leads him into dark scandalous territory, incriminating a leading political figure who happens to be running as candidate in the next national election. DeMille is a masterful story-teller building up the suspense and intrigue of this novel as never before.

The reader will be up late at night and not able to put this one down.

I read this book and thought it was a great read.
But I did not like the ending.
What happens to Suzan, Paul and Cynthia?
Is there a follow up book?
Thanks for the book though.
