    John Wade is a Vietnam vet, and a man in crisis. He's spent years building a successful political career that's now being derailed by revelations about his past as a soldier in Vietnam. He loses the election and retreats to a small cabin near a Minnesota lake -- from which his wife, Kathy, mysteriously disappears. Was foul play involved or did Kathy simply decide to leave? As John Wade looks for answers he discovers that wars don't necessarily end when governments say they do.

Not for the Squeamish, One Fantastic Read

by skyprincess on Dec 2, 2008

John's political career is finished after it suffers a devastating defeat when stories of a Viet Nam massacre cover-up surface and are connected to him. John and his wife Kathy escape the ridicule of the public eye to their lake cabin in the deep woods of Minnesota. While at the cabin, Kathy disappears without a trace. Did she leave with her lover, flee alone, or did John, in his increasing insanity, kill her? Or are John and Kathy planning a deep woods escape across the border to Canada to live out their lives in obscurity? The story is told throughout in the voices of others. It is extremely well-written, haunting and near impossible to put down. Not for the squeamish, it is never-the-less, one fantastic read.

Magic, Reality & the Vietnam War

by Maggie1 on Jan 31, 2008

What really happened to John Wade when he was a soldier in Vietnam? And what really happened to his recently-missing wife, Kathy? O'Brien's book traces John's life from childhood to present, just after John's failed bid at running for Congress. We get snippets of truth and differing perceptions as the people in John's life, from Kathy's distraught relatives to John's childhood acquaintances, offer pieces of the puzzle, sometimes only one line at a time. A great read, but not for someone who needs absolute answers about "what really happened." You'll have to decide for yourself as you read this sometimes graphic and often haunting story.
