Hank and Norm were living the good life: two friends with plenty of money, homes in a lovely California retirement town, and no problems―except for the boredom that felt almost fatal. Then Mai came into the picture, the love of Hank’s life during his CIA days in Saigon, desperately needing his help to save the son he’d never known he had.

Boredom was over, as Hank and Norm hit the road, following the few clues Mai could give them in search of a man who desperately wants not to be found. What they find is a slew of lies and hidden truths, strange characters, improbable danger that has them fighting to survive, and the happy lesson that their lives are far from over.

Review:
A character-driven story with a powerful premise, Son of Saigon is thrilling, packed with twists and turns that readers won't see coming.The storytelling is stellar and the entertaining qualities of the narrative are first class -- from the cinematic writing, the tight plot,the compelling characters to the realism that permeates the plot... The author weaves stunning realism into the narrative and asks relevant existential questions like: What happens when we are unable to do what we used to do? Themes of love, adventure, friendship, and dealing with old age are beautifully explored in this narrative." - Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite
"The author steadily builds the suspense throughout the quest to find out who did what and why at that fateful pre-graduation binge, drawing all the while on the pair's irreverent and funny banter to provide a nice offset to the tension.Hank, a former CIA-operative, proves a more formidable protagonist on the battlefield and in the bedroom than his seventy years might suggest, but even he isn't spared his share of senior jokes... Son of Saigon is sure to keep mystery fans of all ages -- not just the seventy year olds -- engaged, intrigued, and amused." -San Francisco Book Review
"Robinson has written a clean and sharp novel that artfully touches on countless interesting themes, without the story ever feeling rushed or overstuffed with ideas. The dialogue is believable and funny,particularly between Hank and Norm, but the light-heartedness is perfectly balanced with suspense, mystery and serious dramatic moments. A well-rounded work of character-driven fiction, Son of Saigon will surprise and inspire in a satisfying mixture of action and drama." - Self Publishing Review
