Summary
"Marine vet David Hodges returns home from Vietnam to Witman, Tex., but rejects the hero's welcome planned by his fiancee, Kate Riley. Soon after, Peter, David's brother, returns from exile in Canada as a draft-dodger. The brothers are slowly reconciled, David and Kate revive their romance and, despite problems with Kate's loutish cop brother Pat, life in the Gulf-coast town settles down. The calm doesn't last long when a group of Vietnamese refugees arrives (including David's ex-girlfriend), planning to work as shrimp fishers. Witman's shrimp industry is already depressed and a majority of townfolk are against the refugees. There's violence, then death and finally a showdown between David and Pat Riley"--Publishers Weekly
