Excellent reading for any Viet Nam vet or anyone wishing to understand the Viet Nam experience or veteran. Fast paced and insightful. Jackie Kays writes from the heart.
M/Sgt. O. Hiett-USAF (WW-2, Korean and Three tours in Vietnam) Not only is this novel very entertaining, but also reflects the general attitude of most Vietnam veteran at the time period depicted in the book. This novel would make a h... of a good movie!
This story rings true to the feelings of many. It is a very plausible and valid reaction to the amnesty granted to draft evaders. Kays has a style that flows, from expressing the feelings of these vets about the lousy ending of the war, the let down feelings associated with the amnesty, being fed up with a go-nowhere existence, and finally, the resolve to actually do something, right or wrong. It is fast paced and holds nothing back. Clancy beware.
This has got tobe the best book on a hertofore unexplored aspect of that war. A lot of intrigue and a excellent presentation. MUST READING FOR ALL WHO HAVE BEEN THERE!
I am a Vietnam Veteran, and enjoyed this novel very much. It had all the elements of a good thriller...Murder, deciet, mis- lead loyalties and revenge. The author done his home work.
