Nearly 40 years after the end of the Vietnam War, the fate of those airmen listed as Missing In Action have remained a mystery... until now. In "Betrayed," award-winning mystery and thriller author Brendan DuBois writes a harrowing tale of "what if" that begins with a knock on the door. Late at night, small-town newspaper editor Jason Harper answers the door, revealing a dirty, bearded and disheveled stranger on his doorstep. This stranger has an amazing tale: its his brother, Roy Harper, a B-52 pilot shot down in North Vietnam in 1972, who has been held captive for decades, and who has recently escaped, with armed gunmen on his trail... The two brothers then begin a harrowing journey, trying to survive and outwit their armed pursuers, and more importantly, trying to make public Roy Harper's incredible story of survival, and the location of scores of other MIAs, who are still alive, and who are still awaiting rescue after all these years... REVIEWS "DuBois, whose Resurrection Day (1999) had JFK's Bay of Pigs debacle actually starting WWIII, sets up another frighteningly plausible scenario in his latest smart and heartbreaking thriller. Suppose a group of Vietnam MIAs had been secretly shipped to the Soviet Union, where intelligence agents grilled them constantly for almost 30 years? What would've happened to these men when the U.S.S.R. fell apart? In DuBois's version, one of them -- Capt. Roy Harper, a bomber pilot shot down in 1972 -- makes it back home to Berwick, Maine, where he promises to tell his younger brother, Jason, the fantastic story. But before he can continue, two heavily armed Russian mercenaries break in, kill the family dog and threaten Jason, his wife, Patty, and six-year-old son, Paul, with a similar fate... As we learn what happened to Roy and his fellow MIAs, and as the Harper brothers try to get the story out to the world via a New Hampshire TV station, readers who lived through the Vietnam era will be hard pressed not to be tightly gripped and moved to tears." -- Publisher's Weekly "Brendan DuBois is a fine novelist and easily the best short-story writer of his generation." -- New York Times bestselling author Lee Child "Brendan DuBois is a fine writer, at the top of his game." -- New York Times bestselling author William Martin "...Brendan DuBois is one of the two or three finest short story writers of my time." --- mystery editor and author Ed Gorman * * * With expanded material and a new Author's Afterward for the paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly:

DuBois, whose Resurrection Day (1999) had JFK's Bay of Pigs debacle actually starting WWIII, sets up another frighteningly plausible scenario in his latest smart and heartbreaking thriller. Suppose a group of Vietnam MIAs had been secretly shipped to the Soviet Union, where intelligence agents grilled them constantly for almost 30 years? What would've happened to these men when the U.S.S.R. fell apart? In DuBois's version, one of them-Capt. Roy Harper, a bomber pilot shot down in 1972-makes it back home to Berwick, Maine, where he promises to tell his younger brother, Jason, the fantastic story. But before he can continue, two heavily armed Russian mercenaries break in, kill the family dog and threaten Jason, his wife, Patty, and six-year-old son, Paul, with a similar fate. Then things get really exciting and fascinatingly believable as the Harper family splinters. Jason goes off with his idolized brother to confront an American official who can prove Roy's story, while the tougher, more pragmatic Patty reluctantly goes into hiding. DuBois has a way of taking stock characters-the endlessly resourceful hired killer, the mother who'll do anything to protect her child-and surprising us with fresh insights into their behavior. As we learn what happened to Roy and his fellow MIAs, and as the Harper brothers try to get the story out to the world via a New Hampshire TV station, readers who lived through the Vietnam era will be hard pressed not to be tightly gripped and moved to tears.
