Synopsis: If you thought the Vietnam War ended for America's soldiers when the peace accord was signed in 1973, think again. Some soldiers--though still alive--never got to come home. Thousands of others came home only to fight another war within themselves and with the American public. One soldier was determined to fight for those left behind in Southeast Asia. What did our government do about it?
While hunting deer at Puma Creek in Oregon's Fall Creek Forest in October 1980, Vietnam veteran Roger Bruington stumbles onto a suspicious shack in the woods. An hour later he is murdered by an Oregon State Police Officer. Did finding the shack get him killed?
Or was this a government hit because Bruington was finally going to reveal the U.S. Government's cover up of the evidence he turned over in June 1974 proving American POWs were still being held captive in Cambodia, a year after all Vietnam POWs were supposedly released? How will Detective Jim Dowdy, a Korean War veteran, solve the case?
In the summer of 1981, the case takes an unexpected twist when more bodies turn up at Puma Creek. Dowdy is determined to bring the killer--or killers--to justice, but he underestimates what he is up against: "the ghost of Vietnam."
"Trouble at Puma Creek starts with high tension and never lets up. An excellent work of crime fiction," said a retired U.S. Army general, who did two combat tours in Vietnam and once worked in the Defense Intelligence Agency. "But I can't support the idea of a conspiracy or government-cover up of the POW/MIA issue."
About the Author:
Author Wesley Murphey served his country as a navigation specialist (QM2/SS) in the U.S. Navy's submarine force from 1975-79. He served permanently on the USS Guardfish SSN 612 and also did a two-month spec-op on the USS Plunger SSN 595.
Murphey's writing style is refreshing and his story moves forward at a constant pace that keeps readers turning pages. His military and outdoor backgrounds come through loud and clear in Trouble at Puma Creek through his characters and description, as does his excellent sense of humor. Enjoy
