Book Review (5 Star) by Cathy Hansen
Son of Saigon, by David Myles Robinson, is a fast and suspenseful read. A mystery carefully crafted and woven through this historical fiction novel, along with the witty comments of Hank and Norm make this an entertaining page-turner.
Recently widowed, Hank spends his days in a retirement community contemplating his own death. He and his friend Norm even refer to the retirement community as the death farm. Their lives take an exciting turn when Hank receives a visitor from his past: Mai, the Vietnamese woman he fell in love with while working in Saigon for the CIA. Mai has news for Hank: he has a son, but that son has been missing since his high school graduation, and she needs Hank’s help to find him.
Hank and Norm hit the road in search of adventure . . . and answers. It quickly becomes evident that there are people who do not want them to find the answers they are looking for, but they press on, accompanied by their newly adopted dog, Stoner, determined to find out what drove Hank’s son to leave town without a trace.
I could not put Son of Saigon down! Robinson has done an excellent job of developing characters for this novel. I found myself invested in them, and wanting things to turn out well for them. I worried for them, and I laughed at their comments. The characters grow and learn and improve themselves throughout the novel, learning lessons from other characters and events that unfold. Hank goes from a widower waiting to die to a pretty assertive guy, willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Thank you, David Myles Robinson, for a fun read. Son of Saigon did not disappoint.
