Series: Paul Brenner series
(From the publisher):
There is a name carved into Washington's Vietnam Memorial of a lieutenant whose death is shrouded in mystery... a man the authorities believe was murdered.
At first, Paul Brenner, himself a Vietnam vet, isn't interested in the case. After his forced retirement from the army's Criminal Investigation Division, he has adapted to civilian life. Then his old boss tells Brenner of the circumstances surrounding the officer's death: The incident happened over three decades ago in Vietnam; the only evidence is a letter written by a North Vietnamese soldier describing an act of shocking violence.
Brenner's assignment: Return to Vietnam and find the witness. And from sultry Saigon, where he meets beautiful expatriate Susan Weber, to forbidding up-country Vietnam, he will follow a trail of lies and murder that leads to an explosive, long-buried secret.
