For Good Reason

Twenty years after young Daniel Mulvaney survived the Vietnam War, his memoir has made him a best-selling author. Danny’s newfound celebrity has also brought an unforeseen problem: an anonymous Vietnamese wants Danny to return to the country that nearly took his life. His wife wants him to ignore the mysterious invitation, but invisible wounds have reopened. Old ghosts beckon. Danny will have to relive 1968—the scrub jungle of the Mekong Delta, the rice paddies, the villages, Dong Tam, Ambush Alley and worst of all—The U-Minh, infamous Forest of Darkness. These are memories best forgotten—episodes of hardship and horror, of battles fought and buddies lost. Two decades after Danny’s war ended, he will have to fight his way home all over again.
