On the beach near his home, private investigator Wil Hardesty is approached by a Vietnamese fisherman. Vinh Tien is not convinced that the disappearance at sea of his only son was the accident it was ruled. Wil, a Vietnam vet, resisting the ghosts of a past war, decides to help Vinh Tien because Wil, too, lost a son to the ocean.
What Wil discovers brings him into a shadowy world of Asian gangs and corruption played out against the exotic background of the Vietnamese culture. Wil must discover the truth within a web of violence and secrecy before a ghost-killer finds him.
Bad, very bad. The main charactoer is a vietnam vet, so this PI has to be between 55 and 65 years of age but the author has includes a scene where some teeny booper drops her top and tries to suduce him. The story line is tired and slow, sister blames father who blames his brother and then there are the feds, one good the other bad. This book will put you to sleep. Max the dog may be the best part.
