Inhaltsangabe: It is 1968, the end of Tet, the Chinese New Year. Vietcong have shocked the world by ambushing American units across South Vietnam. Back home, the fires of anti-war protest rage.

Jim Quint, a reporter for the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, goes to cover a luncheon speech by the U.S. commander, General William C. Westmoreland. In the parking lot, Quint meets Vivienne, the beautiful young Vietnam wife of Colonol Del Lambert, scion of a wealthy Hawaii family and until recently Westmoreland's chief of intelligence in Vietnam. When Quint learns that Lambert thinks him a coward and a traitor for writing about draft card burners and war protestors, but he invites Quint to have dinner at his home high above Honolulu.

But this dinner leads to higher stakes than good investigative reporting or inside information on the Vietnam war. This dangerous, passionate triangle of soldier, his beautiful wife, and a war critic is a story of bondage, longing, love, and tragedy. Yet, through it all, hope.

Klappentext: ?Expertly crafted. . . . Vivienne is good stuff.??The Star-Ledger, Newark, NJ

February 1968. The Chinese New Year. The Tet Offensive. Vietcong ambush American units all across South Vietnam.

Meanwhile, back home, reporter Jim Quint covers the escalating antiwar protests, writing stories that brand him a coward and a traitor in the eyes of the military. So it comes as quite a surprise when he receives an invitation to dine at the home of intelligence officer Colonel Del Lambert high in the hills above Honolulu.

After a tense dinner, Lambert orders his Vietnamese wife, Vivienne, to strip for Quint; when she refuses, he bullies her into submission, promising Vivienne to Quint as a gift if he can uncover the secret she?s hiding.

Ensnared in a trap of their own making, Quint, Lambert, and Vivienne are driven by the elemental forces of desire, rage, sacrifice, and, ultimately, hope.

?Tells the tale of a very twisted triangle, something straight out of Tennessee Williams.??Booklist

?[A] hard-hitting drama. . . . Builds sexual urgency and suspense all the way.??Publishers Weekly
