Carmen Nguyen grew up believing that her father, a highly decorated US Army Platoon First Sergeant Langston Blue, deserted in Viet Nam, his country, his spouse and her. Since she also assumed he was probably dead, Carmen grew up in Denver not caring to know anything further about her biological father. However while in Denver on a sabbatical at the University of Colorado Cancer Center, her beloved sixty-one years old Aunt Ket mentions that Congressman Peter Margolin knows why Langston deserted and ofthat her dad might still live in backwoods West Virginia. --- Realizing she had been in denial for all her life, Carmen needs to know why. She travels to Mae¿s Louisiana Kitchen to hire two bounty hunter friends of her boyfriend Walker Rios, who is out of the country. Reluctantly CJ Floyd and Flora Jean Benson agree to search for Langston. Neither realized the danger when they accepted the assignment that they thought was a daughter needing to meet her father for the first time, but turned into a deadly look at an Amerasian baby market, illegal military operations, and Margolin as he runs for the Senate. --- RESURRECTING LANGSTON BLUE is a superb suspense thriller that runs on two levels: the dangerous intrigue focusing on continual hiding of a web of lies two-three decades old and on a child, even an adult one, needing to connect with her roots. The story line is action-packed especially when the bounty hunters are on center stage, but also insures the key characters seem genuine particularly Carmen. Fans will enjoy this tense chilling drama with the same obsession that Carmen has to know why. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
