Her excursions and adventures expose her to many situations, such as probes into an opium network that takes her into a pirate lair in the Mekong swamp. As events and relationships escalate, Linnea witnesses the self-immolation of a Buddhist monk and realizes the world she knows is about to change. She has no idea it will include the assassinations of two presidents, not to mention what she discovers about her boss who has become her lover.
In The Tiger and the Hare, author Jane Miller Chai speaks with the authority of one who has lived the events. Passionately written and intimately told, this story opens a rare window into the events preceding United States military involvement in Vietnam, and forms an understanding of the inception of conflict from a personal perspective.
