Up Country Nelson DeMille Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
"Much more than a blood-and-guts thriller...An insightful, moving, and sensitive look at what the war did to a country, its people, and its enemies." - Orlando Sentinel
Former army homicide investigator Paul Brenner has just gotten used to the early retirement forced on him after the disastrous end of his last case when his old commanding officer asks him to return for one final mission: investigate a murder that took place in wartime Vietnam thirty years before. Brenner reluctantly accepts out of curiosity and loyalty...and maybe a touch of boredom. He won't be bored for long.
Back in Vietnam, Brenner meets expatriate Susan Weber, a woman as exotic, sensual, and dangerous as the nation of her voluntary exile. Brenner is plunged into a world of corruption, lethal double cross, and haunted memories-as he's suddenly thrust back into a war that neither he nor his country ever really stopped fighting.

User reviews about this book
Wouldn’t recommend unless interested in Vietnam history
This book was interesting for a bit of Vietnam war history, but the storyline is so predictable. The relationship between the main characters was so awful and unrealistic it was hard to read sometimes.

My fav book by this author!
Excellent story about Vietnam. I am a Vietnam Veteran that has returned their 16 times. Recommend this book to people that are going with me.

It was difficult to put this novel down. I wish to thank the author for putting into words the descriptive feelings of a two TOD in-country Hospital Corpsman. I found the book to be authentic, original and true to the experiences one found in Vietnam during the 60's. Nelson, thank you for your service and welcome home!
Having spent 1968 "in country," I found this tour of Vietnam a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable journey. The story line was a roller coaster ride that never slowed until the last page. I will be recommending it to all my 'nam buddies.
Absolutely could not put it down! I felt as if I were the one "Up Country"!!!
