Summary
Vic Headstream lost his only son in Vietnam. He might have borne up under the sorrow--even weathered the indifference of a country that could not, or would not, honor hit heroic dead. But when the hate mail started, something in Vic Headstream changed, and his whole being surrendered to a deadly obsession. He was suddenly determined to find the author of that mail, and kill him...Al Dewlen has written a tense, powerful novel about the ordeal of Vietnam as it touches and almost destroys the life of an ordinary American family, somewhere in Texas. His driving, suspenseful narrative centers on a complex moral dilemma, played out in the conscience and consciousness of a middle-aged man whose sense of betrayal and outrage leads him relentlessly forward into a chilling pact with death. And before it is fulfilled, more lives than one will hang in the balance...--From jacket flap
