Recived for review from netgally and the publisher this has in now way affected my opinion
An exciting thriller! This book grabbed hold of me on page 1 and i didn’t want to put it down . It starts out in Saigon during the vietnam war and follows various protagonists through the seedy underworld of Saigon brothels, black market drug dealers, military deserters, undercover hits by covert milaitry operatives, rogue Air America pilots, the mafia incompotent high ranking military officers and the miliatary police trying to cope with it all and solve a crime. it then follows the lead characters after the war as they readjust to life in the Lincon Park neighbourhood of Chicago.

It’s a gripping and suspenseful historical thriller combined with romance. It features excellent characters and a very real feel for the time and place of Saigon during the war. I felt like i was actually in Vietnam. This is a good read as it causes the reader to escape his everyday world. I highly recommend it
