Über diesen Titel
Shocked to see his own name etched in the stone of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Cal Morgan teams up with MIA-POW activist Kate Ackerman to learn the identity of the soldier buried in his place.From Kirkus Reviews:
A Vietnam vet finds his name on the Vietnam Memorial and uses his considerable resources to find out how and why it got there, rattling cages from Washington to Bangkok in the process. Dinallo is also the author of Purpose of Evasion and Rocket's Red Glare. Highly successful actuary A. Calvert Morgan has done extremely well for himself since a land mine ended his stint as a Ranger in Vietnam. A house in Malibu, a prosperous business, a happy marriage, and children--all have smoothed over the terrors of that bitter war, and he's been able to put the experience from his mind. Then, on his first visit to the Memorial, Morgan finds, in addition to the names of his comrades, his own. Finding out how the name got there becomes an obsession, taking him on a search that involves his formidable number-crunching skills, numerous rather obscure government agencies, and the organizations that support families of the men who never returned from Southeast Asia. He is not just dealing with a clerical error. Almost as soon as he begins to dig, Calvert feels pressure to let the matter drop. His failure to do so results in the death of his wife, escalating his search into a mission that takes him back to Indo-China and to a one-man war against the powerful local drug industry. His only ally is an intelligent and attractive woman whose husband is still on the list of those missing in action. A bittersweet and clever thriller, flawed occasionally by cartoonish violence. -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
