St Martin's, 1988. FIRST EDITION. As new - mint condition, gray paper covered boards have a green cloth spine with red lettering, original dust jacket unclipped ($18.95.) Author's second book - a novel of suspense and betrayal set in the Vietnamese immigrant community known as "Little Saigon" in Orange County, California. "It is called Little Saigon, the teeming community in Orange County, California, where 100,000 refugees - Cambodians, Laotians, Chinese, but mostly Vietnamese - have come to live, and where Chuck Frye, sometimes journalist and semi-pro surfer, comes face to face with the horror that his charismatic older brother saw in the Vietnam war. Investigating the unexplained, Frye maneuvers through a maze of street gangs, businessmen playing on the fears of the community, and cadres from as far away as Hanoi who exploit the lingering specter of the war, all of it pointing to a trans-Pacific espionage network - and to Frye's own brother." 354 pages.
