A Vince Torelli Novel Book 1: MP - A Novel of Vietnam

Score: 4.80 (votes: 10)

A former soldier who becomes a San Francisco police homicide investigator after the war, Vince Torelli is dedicated, intelligent and highly principled--all skills that serve him well given the difficult, almost impossible murder investigations he's assigned to handle that force him to the razor edge with equally resolute, extremely ruthless masterminds.

As Vincent Torelli stepped off the plane at Bien Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam, in June 1967, he was almost overwhelmed by the stench in the hot, humid air. Drafted into the armed forces five months earlier, he still can't comprehend how he ended up in this place, now a Military Policeman assigned to the 557th MP Co. at Long Binh Post just outside Bien Hoa City.

His year-long tour of duty in Vietnam changes him from a somewhat naïve young man to a battle-hardened veteran. Through unlucky chance, Vince becomes involved in the ferocious '68 Tet offensive, barely surviving the night.  He sees and experiences things he could never have imagined before ending up in Vietnam. 

This is Vince's story... survival, coping with the hell he's facing, the sorrow of lives lost, and the friendships he formed.

    Interesting read of a soldier's experience in Viet Nam. If you were not there it provides a great story of one soldier's experience after being drafted and sent over seas.
