Scott Brick delivers a superior reading of DeMille's latest intriguing plot. Paul Brenner, the military cop from THE GENERAL'S DAUGHTER, is back to investigate a recent report of a thirty-year-old murder in Vietnam of an American officer by another American. Brenner, himself a Vietnam vet, returns to that country and teams up with Susan Webber, an American expatriate, to uncover the astounding facts sur-rounding his mission. Along the way, the listener learns about many wartime occurences that are not common knowledge. Also, as the author, a former infantry captain, tells you in a prologue, he tries to reconcile wartime Vietnam with the present--you learn that the current Communist government permits and even fosters a capitalistic society. On the lighter side, Brenner is a master of the one-liner. Brick reels them off, tongue in cheek, one after the other. The continual repartee between Susan and Brenner is almost priceless--even after twenty tapes. You hope both characters will be back in a sequel--and that Brick re-ups. A.L.H.
