Marti Leimbach, has a wonderful style of writing which draws the reader into the story from the start. This is obvious in "The Man From Saigon", a story of a female reporter/journalist, In-Country, to give reports of the war from the side of a woman, for a Women's Magazine. As the story unfolds, Susan Gifford is sent Saigon to cover the war in 1967. She finds and falls in love with another reporter, Marc, a TV Reporter, who is also in Saigon covering the war. There is a third main character, in Susan's photographer, Son, a Vietnamese man who is looking to make a name for himself, yet finds Susan and wants her to take him on as her photographer. Right from the start you see drama and unexpected turns in the story. Susan is the type of reporter/journalist that does not want to stay in Saigon and cover the war from a press conference point of view, so she ventures out with patrols of military personnel to get the story right from the source. The question I have is whether this novel is a non-fiction, fiction, or historical fiction. Many of the details are true to form with descriptions of conditions and topography throughout the story, and Marti Leimbach has done a lot of research for the time period. Bravo Marti. There's also the hidden agenda of Son. What are his true motives for wanting to be so close to Susan and the American Military establishment. Is he up to no good, or are his intentions really what he wants us to believe? You'll have to read this novel to find out for yourself. When Susan and Son are separated from their escorts of military personnel in the jungle, a new set of circumstances take place which again, will keep the reader on the edge of the seat. What is the outcome? Again, this is a must read. "The Man From Saigon", belongs in a permanent library for reading over and over again.

Susan Gifford, female war correspondent in Vietnam is taken prisoner, along with her Vietnamese photographer, Son. THE MAN FROM SAIGON by Marti Leimbach is a well written story that is not only descriptive of what it is like in the jungles of Vietnam, but also the hardships of that war. It is also a love story (Susan and her married lover, Marc). I found I couldn't put the book down as they struggled on their march through the jungle. Quite an impressive novel.
