Editorial Reviews

Review

“Scott Brick’s rich-voiced, gruff narration meshes perfectly with the grim war setting. . . . A riveting must-listen.”
      —AudioFile

(Library Journal)

“Gripping.”
      —DWD’s Reviews



“Gem of a story. . . . Scott Brick’s gritty reading perfectly relates the fear, terror, and anger of each of the men of the patrol.”
      —Library Journal

About the Author

Actor, screenwriter and audiobook narrator, SCOTT BRICK definitely gives new meaning to a hyphenate career with credits in film, television, stage and radio. He studied both acting and writing at UCLA, spent ten years with a traveling Shakespearean company, and then went on to become a freelance writer. In 2000, Brick ventured into narrating audiobooks and quickly found himself embraced by the audio world. He’s won numerous Earphones Awards for his narrating skills, as well as Audie Awards. AudioFile Magazine named Brick “one of the fastest-rising stars in the audiobook galaxy,” and proclaimed him a Golden Voice.



NELSON DEMILLE is the New York Times bestselling author of numerous thriller novels, including The General’s Daughter, which was also made into a major motion picture. He lives on Long Island, New York.

Since I "discovered" Nelson DeMille many years ago, he's become one of my favorite authors, and I've read everything he's written. I was pleasantly surprised a few months ago when he began publishing occasional Kindle Singles, which were short stories. The first one, "The Book Case," was a nice look at the young John Corey when he was still a detective with the NYPD. The second Short, "Death Benefits," gave DeMille a chance to show his whimsical side.

The third Short, "Rendezvous," is a very different kind of story. Recapturing some of the suspense and nail-biting tension of earlier novels like Up Country and Charm School, the story follows an Army Long Range Reconnaissance Patrol in Vietnam on the last days of a mission to report enemy troop movements. The mission has gone well until - suddenly - the two radio operators are killed and their radios shot up. Realizing that the ten-man patrol is under sniper fire, the lieutenant leading the patrol does everything he can to evade the sniper and get the remaining members of the patrol to their extraction point. One worrisome point - the men were in exposed positions where the hidden sniper could have killed them all, so why didn't he?

When the lieutenant finally gets a brief glimpse of the sniper, he's stunned by what he learns. As the story progresses, the lieutenant begins to understand the sniper's plan, but will this knowledge help him get his men back alive?

With imminent death all around the men, the tension built steadily to the breaking point, one of the trademarks of DeMille. Not to sound too enigmatic, but the final two paragraphs were the stuff of which nightmares are born.

I enjoyed reading this Kindle short. You can get through it in 2-3 hours. Mr. Demille takes us back in time to the Vietnam War, where his patrol is shot to pieces by a female sniper. He is the only survivor of the patrol. He transports you to the dangerous jungles of Vietnam near the DMV, where American soldiers rule the day and North Vietnamese soldiers rule the night. Written in the first person, you do not know from where the sniper is firing, and Demille brings out the fear and anxiety associated with the events occurring all around him.

I recommend this book to anyone who has an evening to kill and wants to curl up next to the fire with a good book in hand.

Since I am very familiar with DeMille's writing I was suprised to get one of his books for my new Kindle for only $1.99. I just got my Kindle for Christmas and was not familiar with the definition of Kindle (single), i.e., only a single chapter. I was not very happy when I saw "The End" after the first chapter. It was a great short story but at $1.99 per chapter that would be $30+ for a regular book. I also bought "The Bookcase" at the same time, another Kindle (single) since I love the John Corey books. Shame on me twice. I guess this lesson cost me $4.00.

A very good and captivating short story. Just like in other books such as Up Country DeMille paints a vivid picture of one soldier's Vietnam experience and in doing so helps you to better understand them all.

Read it in about an hour. Used to love the early DeMille books but his later books lost me. Maybe I will give him another try. The characters are well drawn and he keeps the tension high.

The short story format is great when you want to kill a little time and don't feel like committing to a novel. I think in the digital era/attention crash age the short form will make a comeback.

This was my first Amazon Prime borrow.

More About the Author

I was born in New York City in 1943. My father was a Canadian, serving at that time with the American Navy, and my mother was a Brooklyn native, trying to figure out how to grow a Victory Garden for the war effort.

My family moved to Elmont, Long Island, New York in 1947 where my father was a house builder, and my mother was a homemaker raising four boys.
I attended Elmont public schools, played football, ran track, and was on the wrestling team. I graduated Elmont Memorial High School in 1962 and spent the summer at the beach.

I attended Hofstra University, but left before graduation to join the Army in 1966. I served three years in the United States Army as an infantry lieutenant and spent one year in Vietnam as a platoon leader with the First Cavalry Division. You'll see that I used this experience in my novels "Word of Honor" and "Up Country."

After the end of my military service, I returned to Hofstra where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and History. I married and had two children, Lauren and Alex, and eventually divorced.

I held a series of good and bad jobs between 1970 and 1974, and in that year, for some reason I can't remember, I decided to be a writer. My first books were paperback originals, New York City police detective novels, thankfully all out of print and hard to find.

In 1978, I published my first major novel, "By the Rivers of Babylon," which was a commercial and critical success. Since then, I've written fourteen other novels and had a good time creating my characters John Corey, Ben Tyson (played by Don Johnson in the TNT movie of "Word of Honor"), foxy Emma Whitestone, Paul Brenner (played by John Travolta in the Paramount movie of "The General's Daughter"), sexy Susan Sutter, the never-say-die CIA officer Ted Nash, and my favorite villain, Asad Khalil, a misunderstood Libyan terrorist with unresolved childhood issues.

I am a member of The Authors Guild, the Mystery Writers of America (past President), American Mensa (thank God I don't have to retake that test), and I hold three honorary doctorate degrees (thank God I didn't have to study for them) from Hofstra University, Long Island University, and Dowling College.
I'm married to the love of my life, Sandy Dillingham, whom I met while I was on a publicity tour in Denver. We have a son, James, two years old, and he's keeping me young.

There's more about me on my website. Thanks for reading about me here, and I hope you enjoy my novels.
