    "GOOD SHORT STORY"

    This book kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see what would happen next and who would make it and who wouldn't. I knew the narrator, so to speak would make it, otherwise he wouldn't be talking, but getting there is most the suspense!

    Story
    "One...by...one"

    Short story (1 hour listen) about a combat patrol in Vietnam. Suspenseful and exciting as the patrol is followed by a female sniper. One by one, they are picked off...until the end.

    "Awesome Vietnam Patrol Story"

    I wonder if Demille wrote this straight out of his own experience. It's about a patrol of 10 being hunted by a female sniper. Really suspenseful, well written an read short story.

    Story
    "Very good short story. Little overpriced ..."
    If you could sum up Rendezvous in three words, what would they be?

    fast paced, unexpected, compelling


    What did you like best about this story?

    I didn't know what to expect and I wasn't disappointed so to speak. Like "Up Country" and "Word of Honor" it is about deMille's time in Vietnam. American Platoon vs. Vietnamese sniper. But I don't want to give anything away here. The story is short enough to ruin it for everyone reading here if I say too much.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard to say really. Same as above. Don't want to call a spoiler alert.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No problem here, since it's only a short story :-)
