Description
Vietnam, 1966. Benjamin Wingfoot is the leader of a special Operations group stationed deep upcountry. He's taken on plenty of dangerous missions, but something about his latest assignment doesn't sit well with him. Summoned back to Saigon, Wingo is ordered to kill a local bar girl suspected of spying for the North - and make it look like the routine murder of a prostitute. Right away, he suspects that there is more to this mission than he is being told. War may be hell, but, as Wingo struggles to uncover the truth amidst the corruption of wartime Saigon, he soon learns that even darker trials await him - and that the price of holding onto his soul may be more than any man can endure.

display_description"Right from the start, he suspects that there is far more to this mission than he is being told. Why, in a city where every other citizens may have ties in the North, is one young woman such a threat? Why not simply turn her over to the local authorities? And perhaps most important, why assign this brutal task to him? He's a soldier, not an assassin." --- Book Jacket.
