Sweeping epic of love and betrayal. The narrator, a communist double agent is a half French, half Vietnamese army captain who arranges to come to America after the fall of Saigon, and while building a new life with other Vietnamese refugees in Los Angeles, is secretly reporting back to his communist superiors in Vietnam. A blistering exploration of identity and America, a gripping espionage novel, and a powerful story of love and friendship.
