In this tense, riveting mind game, New York Times bestselling novelist Nelson DeMille delivers a suspenseful short story in the tradition of his classic military novels The General's Daughter and Word of Honor. A band of soldiers in its last month of service in Vietnam goes out on a patrol through enemy territory with a female sniper in its path. Recounting the mission in shattering and sometimes gruesome detail, DeMille creates a concise masterpiece of moody suspense.
Demille served as a First Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and saw combat in Vietnam as an infantry platoon leader, earning a Bronze Star. He states that Rendezvous features a fictionalized version of himself from that experience.

What a disappointment it reminded me of a serial story that is no where finished.
did not like or dislike
This was true short story that entertained me on my commute. It wasn't an overly complex work and the story was quite predictable. Some inaccuracies, such as supposedly not being able to hear a 7.62 round fired from 100 metes away, detracted from the story.
The narrator was solid, but not spectacular. If you can get this on special, give it a try, but don't spend too much on it.
Happy married mother of one, South African living in South Australia.
The writer got you into the scene very quickly. I felt fully submerged into the environment.
Yes. It is through the combination of writing style, pace and excellent narration.
Makes me want to explore other works by this author.
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!
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.
