Publisher's Summary

He is a good man, a brilliant corporate executive, an honest, handsome family man admired by men and desired by women. But a lifetime ago Ben Tyson was a lieutenant in Vietnam.There the men under his command committed a murderous atrocity -- and together swore never to tell the world what they had done. Now the press, army justice, and the events he tried to forget have caught up with Ben Tyson. His family, his career, and his personal sense of honor hang in the balance. And only one woman can reveal the truth of his past -- and set him free.

Critic Reviews

"The flashbacks to Hue, the pre-trial investigation (involving an attractive female major), the court-martial proceedings, the emotions of the principal characters and the soul-sickness wrought by war (which is the story's effective subtext) all are depicted with marvelous vividness." ( Publishers Weekly)

Nelson does it again

I am a fan of Mr. Demille, and this one started a bit slow for me, but by the end I was gripped.

I would recommend.

One of Demille's Best

The best of Demille. The story was fast paced and action packed. It kept me interested throughout and I didn't want to put it down.
My complaint with Demille in other books was his excessive descriptions of each and every item. His excessive use of adjetives to describe the simplest item has been a problem for me in Gold Coast and The Gate House. This book did not seem to dwell on this as much. He moved rapidly through the story and kept my interest in the characters to the end.
