When Maggie's criminally inclined brother shows up at her apartment in the middle of the night severely beaten, she's certain it has something to do with their father, a highly secretive, shifty Vietnam vet, always on the run and impossible to know. They haven't heard from him in months, which isn't unusual. But they soon discover that he isn't just missing. He's been killed.
As secrets from her father's murky past are uncovered, Maggie is led back to her family's roots in the flames of Vietnam. Who was Jimmy Malone? What became of a tiny baby girl sent to America in Operation Babylift? And who are the shadowy figures who will stop at nothing to prevent the secrets of the jungle from coming to light, even if it means murder?
When I searched on Irish and Mystery this title appeared. Unfortunately I missed the fact that this book is a Harlequin publication. It was true to that writing style with a predictable plot and too many cliche's to mention. "Buttery leather chairs, ...like shark chum ... etc." If you like romance you may like this one, otherwise steer clear.
