The Killing School
From the Author of UNBELIEVABLE and UNKNOWABLE comes UNSPEAKABLE, the Third Installment in the Murder on the Mekong Series, the Final Riveting Journey Into the Perils of the Vietnam War
-- Vietnam, 1974-75, the last days of the Vietnam War --
A top CIA assassin turns on those who value him most, another killer finds it hard to kill upon discovering his heart, and a woman who once had a heart wonders how she lost it.
In the final days leading up to the end of the Vietnam War and the exodus of U.S. troops from Saigon, JD turns on his former employer, the CIA. But taking the moral high-ground may cost him in ways he could never have imagined.
Kate, the former mission nurse, marries the world's most powerful dirty diplomat and discovers too late that the path to redemption is quickly obliterated.
Izzy, a good man who lives to heal, must find a path for his own healing as he struggles with PTSD and the rubble that remains of his life. Must Izzy--and good men like him—become killers to stop those who kill without conscience?
. . . or will they become part of something UNSPEAKABLE?
Publisher's Note: Readers should be prepared for death and graphic violence consistent with the true nature of the poppy trade and the Vietnam war.
Previously titled as MAKING A KILLING, UNKNOWABLE is a tightly woven psychological thriller that reflects the real-world experience and knowledge of the author.
Fans of Dan Hampton, Larry Chambers, Joe Hart, Doug Stantan and Karl Marlantes will not want to miss this military historical fiction series.
