            Jim Murphy, the hero of The Methuselah Project, is abruptly brought out of semi-retirement in Costa Rica in 1986 to conduct one more dangerous mission. His Vietnamese National Police (NP) counterpart in1975, Colonel Bui-Hop, has been assassinated in Denver, Colorado. His only gra...ndchild, Maui, had been kidnapped by the local Vietnamese mafia known as the Red Feather's Gang. Bui-Hop's daughter, Mia Ling Hue, tracked down Murphy in Costa Rica and pleaded for his help. The Red Feather's Gang was demanding one million in gold bullion they believed Bui-Hop hid in Da Nang Province at the time of Saigon's collapse in April 1975. It was believed that 15 tons of gold were in the South Vietnamese National Bank at that time. If their demands weren't met within 90 days, the child would be murdered. This fast-paced drama takes Murphy into the heart of the Red Feather's Gang territory in Denver. Murphy is shocked to find that the Gang is a local chapter of the Dai Cathy Brotherhood which had controlled all gambling, drugs, and vice in Vietnam in the 1970s. They helped the CIA covertly move drugs from the Golden Triangle via Air America to raise funds in support of the CIA Iran Contra covert operation. When the Los Angeles-based Dai Cathy Brotherhood send their primary enforcer to Denver, things start to heat-up. It doesn't take long before bodies start to pile-up! Murphy soon realizes that old acquaintances have become new enemies. Murphy can only find the truth with the help of new friends, detective 'Flower' Pham, and her partner, Frank Anderson, of the Denver PD Asian Gang Squad. CIA assassination teams, Congressional influence, and Russian blackmail collide in this attempt to hide one of the most secret and corrupt covert operations ever encountered. Murphy soon discovers that no good deed goes unpunished. Murphy is forced to return to Vietnam to help a friend whose family has been placed in serious jeopardy by the Brotherhood leader Trinh. Murphy figured that there was more

            Tense, atmospheric, and gorgeously written, The Summer Country is a novel to savor! - Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Huntress and The Alice Network A brilliant, multigenerational saga in the tradition of The Thorn Birds and North and South, New York Times be...stselling historical novelist Lauren Willig delivers her biggest, boldest, and most ambitious novel yet-a sweeping Victorian epic of lost love, lies, jealousy, and rebellion set in colonial Barbados. Barbados, 1854: Emily Dawson has always been the poor cousin in a prosperous English merchant clan- merely a vicar's daughter, and a reform-minded vicar's daughter, at that. Everyone knows that the family's lucrative shipping business will go to her cousin, Adam, one day. But when her grandfather dies, Emily receives an unexpected inheritance: Peverills, a sugar plantation in Barbados-a plantation her grandfather never told anyone he owned. When Emily accompanies her cousin and his new wife to Barbados, she finds Peverills a burnt-out shell, reduced to ruins in 1816, when a rising of enslaved people sent the island up in flames. Rumors swirl around the derelict plantation; people whisper of ghosts. Why would her practical-minded grandfather leave her a property in ruins Why are the neighboring plantation owners, the Davenants, so eager to acquire Peverills The answer lies in the past- a tangled history of lies, greed, clandestine love, heartbreaking betrayal, and a bold bid for freedom. THE SUMMER COUNTRY will beguile readers with its rendering of families, heartbreak, and the endurance of hope against all odds.

A false king seeks dominion. His soldiers will bring desolation and despair to Darien.
