Tyler, a Vietnam combat veteran, teams up with the town’s first female chief of detectives. Together, they link the killings to a defence company boss who has gone missing, leaving a huge Pentagon contract and 1,200 jobs in the balance.

At a time when reality often humbled the wildest conspiracy theories, Tyler comes up against a hostile FBI agent, angry mobsters and a cheated casino owner.

His problems mount when a secretive figure he last saw deep in Viet Cong territory arrives in town…
