Synopsis

Synopsis

The casualties of war take many forms. When Amerasian ER doctor Carmen Nguyen suspects that her father, Langston Blue, who disappeared during the Vietnam War, may be alive, she hires cheroot-smoking, African-American bail bondsman and Vietnam vet CJ Floyd to help her find him. CJ’s discoveries aren’t pretty: Carmen’s father was an elite assassin operating behind enemy lines, authorized to kill anyone who got in his way, from innocent villagers to presidents. During his final, fateful mission, Blue apparently discovered some troubling information on secret U.S. government programs—information that made his life expendable. Soon Carmen, CJ, and his new partner, Flora Jean, are following a trail of double deals, Vietnamese racism, political corruption, and power grabs that lead all the way to the halls of the U.S. Senate. Resurrecting Langston Blue is a riveting read—a mystery and political thriller that twists and turns right up to the very end.
