this book fades after the first half, just when it should be rising to a crescendo. this writer seems like a combination of Graham Greene and Georges Simenon. The background is the big battle of Vietnam which drove the French away. Dien Bien Phu. But all that is in flashback. The contemporary scene is in Holland, a Dutch police detective investigating a murder of a young woman, with a submachine gun, in her pantry. He pulls on threads, and finally has to go to France, to interview military higher-ups who were at DBP. See, she had been there, too. See, it's a mystery, so that's what the investigator does: he follows the clues, from revelation to revelation. Only, the story runs out of O-0-o-mph far too soon. Still, this is a superior writer, and you could learn about DBP, from the reading, also.
