About this title

Synopsis:

The last thing Paul Brenner wanted to do was return to work for the Armys Criminal Investigative Division, an organization that thanked him for his many years of dedicated service by forcing him into early retirement. But when his former boss calls in a careers worth of favors, Paul finds himself investigating a murder that took place back in Vietnam thirty years before. Now, returning to a time and place that still haunts him, Paul is swept up in the battle of his life as he struggles to find justice. Paramount Pictures bought the film rights to Up Country, and John Travolta is in negotiations to reprise the role of Paul Brenner, the role he played in the popular film version of DeMilles The Generals Daughter. The Lions Game (Warner, 1/00), which has over two million hardcover and paperback copies in print combined, was an instant New York Times bestseller and received widespread critical acclaim. Plum Island (Warner Books, 1997), which has two million hardcover and paperback copies in print combined, was a #1 New York Times bestseller and hit every major national list, including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and San Francisco Chronicle. The Generals Daughter (Warner Books, 1992) was a #1 New York Times bestseller, with nearly three million copies in hardcover and paperback print combined. Film rights for both The Lions Game and Plum Island were sold in a huge deal to Columbia Pictures.

Review:

In Up Country, Nelson DeMille cannily revives the army career of Chief Warrant Officer Paul Brenner, the cynical, hardworking Criminal Investigation Division man who was forcibly retired after solving the high-profile killing in The General's Daughter. Brenner's called back to investigate the murder of a young army lieutenant by his captain. The catch is, the crime took place during the heat of the Tet Offensive, and the only living witness was a North Vietnamese soldier who described the incident in a 30-year-old letter that has only recently come to light. Soon Brenner, a Vietnam vet, is on an ostensible nostalgia tour of his old stomping grounds. The trip immediately turns dangerous as he heads "up country" to search for the letter writer, accompanied by a gorgeous American businesswoman, who's hiding more than even the smartest CID officer could imagine.

DeMille, who saw his own tour of duty in Vietnam (and even found a letter on a dead Vietnamese soldier), intersperses historical facts and chilling political possibilities with enough local color to provide some serious flashbacks for his fellow veterans. To non-vets the book may seem very long, but the payoff at the end is worth a couple hundred extra pages. --Barrie Trinkle
