    Calvino Goes To Modern Saigon. That would be the easiest way

    Calvino Goes To Modern Saigon.
    That would be the easiest way to describe what I still think of as being one of Chris' best Vincent Calvino novels.
    Granted, it was written and sold in the mid-1990s but no matter how often I re-read this incredible story, the Saigon that Calvino and his best friend Lt. Col. Pratt encounter is strikingly very much like the Saigon I myself experienced in 2008/2009 and last July in 2012.
    Any reader who's read other Calvino tales know that the tough-yet-lovable PI originally from New York City somehow manages to hold his own in Bangkok when the You-Know-What hits Ye Olde Ceiling Fan so it's no surprise that even though Saigon IS a great deal different from Bangkok, it's close enough for an expat like Vinnie to get by. It likewise shows that Chris has gotten to know the former capital of the Republic of Vietnam as well as he does his second home of Krung Thep (Bangkok).
    Go with Calvino and Pratt to Saigon and have as entertaining and as educational time there as you often do as Vinnie solves the latest mess along Sukhumvit when neon, greed and dishonesty are all turned on at full capacity in the City of Questionable Angels.
