Former Vietnam POW Jacob Slaughter is sent to Hanoi to negotiate a trade agreement on behalf of the United States. Back in-country, he is escorted to a rotting building where he is outraged to find his former cellmate and friend, Captain Charles Wooten, still being held. Wooten's condition is pathetic but he's alive. How much longer is up to Slaughter. Slaughter returns to Washington and fights for the trade concessions Vietnam has demanded before they'll give Wooten and twenty-two other American soldiers their freedom.

About the Author:

Running Time: 10.5 Hrs.

From Library Journal:

In this first novel by a former FBI agent, ex-POW Jacob Slaughter is back in Vietnam to improve trade relations. Late in the negotiations, the Vietnamese show him a prisoner, a cellmate long supposed dead, and the dossiers of 22 more. Not much to our surprise, when he tries to get the men back, he discovers that shadowy political forces oppose admitting that there might be living prisoners. Slaughter gets obstinate, and a succession of cardboard villains, ranging from a Mexican assassin to the vice president, try to do him in. Eventually, he bows to the wishes of the real rulers of America (not, as you have guessed, the elected ones) and works out a compromise to save everyone's face without abandoning the POWs. This novel reads like an episode of The X-Files, but it suffers from predictability, self-righteousness, and uninspired writing. A low-priority purchase for public libraries.?Edwin B. Burgess, U.S. Army Combined Arms Research Lib., Fort Leavenworth, Kan.
