Publisher's Summary

More than 40 years after their release from the notorious "Hanoi Hilton", three American prisoners of war return to Vietnam to make peace with their most brutal former captor, a guard whom they've dubbed "Mr. Wonderful". The US State Department hopes reconciliation will help cement a major trade agreement between Washington and the Vietnamese. But when Mr. Wonderful is found murdered, the three ex-POWs are accused of the crime, and the multibillion-dollar deal threatens to unravel. Enter pilot, still-aspiring Buddhist, and former military assassin Cordell Logan.
Working with a newly formed covert intelligence unit that answers directly to the White House, Logan is dispatched to Hanoi to identify the real killer as the trade agreement threatens to implode. What he soon uncovers proves to be a vexing and increasingly dangerous mystery. Who really killed the guard and why? Unlocking the answers will test every ounce of Logan's ingenuity and resolve while risking his life as never before.
Like its three predecessors in the Cordell Logan mystery series, Flat Spin, Fangs Out, and Voodoo Ridge, The Three-Nine Line is a classic, pulse-pounding pause resister. Legions of loyal listeners and critics alike have hailed the humor and full-throttle pacing. The Three-Nine Line may well be the best yet.

Another great addition to this Series!

I always look forward to the new Cordell Logan books . This is a very good and witty mystery series. Cordell Logan is a flight instructor who keeps getting invovled in solving murders due to his former black ops background. I have listened to all four novels to date and loved them all. The narrator, Ray Porter is very gifted and makes the stories even better.
If you want a good series to listen to I highly recommend this one.

What did you like best about this story?

Ray Porter's narration is perfect for what you will envision Cordell as looking and sounding like, so that is a great part of the adventure in listening. The story however, is just a solid, easy, constant move forward toward a logical and satisfying end. The action is not so much "beat em up, shoot em up", as it is a chase for the truth.

Any additional comments?

As with the three prior books, this was an easy and instantly captivating listen. The summary is good and simple so not much more needs to be offered. I will note that the descriptions while Logan is in Vietnam, and throughout all of the books for that matter, are not particularly flowery and protracted for pages, but they do conjure images in your imagination in perfect harmony to the story. The plot is well done without any crazy contortions in order to make the story line work and the final solution is plausible and logical while being a little twist you may not see coming. This is a very well done story by an author that seems to truly have the ability to write good stories that capture and hold the reader.
