More Description


Allison Giraud is the American widow of a French planter murdered by the Viet Minh. Joe Ruffin is an American doctor-missionary. Mark Gardiner is a well-meaning stuffed shirt in the U.S. Embassy. Katherine Gregory is the bored wife of a USAID officialNa few of the Americans in this epic novel, all looking for love as if it might be their last chance before the world changes for the worse. Meanwhile, a quarrelsome and passionate trio of Viet Cong revolutionaries plot the assassination of the Vietnamese Province chief in Dalat, the village where the American ambassador has his country villa. East meets West violently, testing everyone's courage, honor and love. The story moves all over Saigon, from the steamy back streets and the hushed verandas of foreign society to Angkor Wat, and reaches its climax in a jungle where foreigners are seldom seen -- and less than welcome.
