Description

Army cop Erik Rider prefers to fight his war in the saloons and streets of Saigon. When he is sent to disrupt a Vietcong opium operation deep in the jungle, he could not be less interested. But when Rider lands in Cheo Reo, things get complicated. The American outpost is home to battle-hardened soldiers, intelligence operatives, and profiteers of all stripes. Meanwhile, Vietcong battalions are massing in the hills, and sixty thousand Montagnard tribespeople are advancing with the goal of reclaiming their mountain homeland.

With a bounty on his head, Rider must hunt for the opium smugglers, avoid enemy patrols, and defend the undermanned U.S. base. As he closes in on the smuggling operation, he discovers that someone inside the base has a stake in it, and is willing to kill to protect that stake.

      • content:

        July 11, 2011
        Jurjevics's intriguing if at times diffuse novel of the Vietnam War centers on Capt. Erik Rider, a military investigator dispatched to a remote base called Cheo Reo to disrupt the funding of North Vietnamese troops through opium production. What he discovers is a web of systemic corruption involving local politicians and South Vietnamese military leaders, all of whom are operating with the tacit approval of U.S. military commanders. Jurjevics (The Trudeau Vector), himself a Vietnam veteran, is best when describing the details of daily life during war, particularly those involving the abuse of the huge native tribal population of Montagnards. Too often, though, the narrative spins off into side episodes that are hard for the reader to connect with Rider's investigation. A framing device used to bracket the plot—a daughter seeking out Rider decades after the war's end for information about her father, who was Rider's commanding officer—ends in a predictable resolution after a promising setup.
