David Myles Robinson has returned

I’m pleased to welcome David Myles Robinson back to Choices, while he’s on his WOW! Women on Writing virtual book tour for his new book, Son of Saigon. I couldn’t resist reading another one of his mystery thrillers after the great time I had reading The Pinochet Plot. See my post about that book and my review here.

His latest book is called Son of Saigon, and it doesn’t disappoint. Here’s a brief synopsis:

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.

By the way, I love the relationship between these two guys. They often add a little levity to the seriousness of this story.

My Review of Son of Saigon – Here are some other things I liked about Son of Saigon:

Like David Myles Robinson’s previous book that I reviewed, I found Son of Saigon completely engaging and utterly entertaining. And like I said before, I don’t normally read detective and murder mystery novels.

I felt very connected with the characters in Son of Saigon – especially the old guys, Hank and Norm, who took to the road as amateur detectives to solve a mystery – an adventure that ended up saving them for their boring lives in a retirement community.

This book has it all – excellent writing, suspense, romance, excitement, and even humor. Some of the adventures that Hank and Norm experience while camping out during their travels will definitely keep you turning the page.

I congratulate David Myles Robinson for another great book and for his excellent story-telling ability.
