Those who returned from Viet Nam left behind the figurative fog of war only to deal with the literal fog of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Police officers trying to protect their populace, they instead find themselves dealing with the revenge rampage of an ex-soldier over an act of war that had been as necessary as it had been wrong.
“Vietnam is no moral and just cause like World War Two. It’s a politician’s mess, where right and wrong aren’t real clear... Who knows what that boy of yours has seen or done... Whatever he’s done, he did it over there and he may have brought some of it back with him. Sometimes dirt gets on you in life and it’s hard to wash off.”
The book is gripping and fast-paced, swinging back and forth among the parallel story lines.
My only objection to the book was that the main female characters seemed to serve only as prizes or punishments for the male characters. They were less fully developed, and their ultimate fate defined the main male character's fate.
James, Scott (2015-04-20). Dirt: A Crime Novel (Kindle Locations 1240-1243). Exit288 Media. Kindle Edition.
The one thing that bothered me about this otherwise engrossing story was how the main female characters were portrayed. To me they existed simplistically, as both prize and penalty for the main male characters.
Dirt is extremely fast paced, perhaps because that is how the author, a nationally-ranked triathlete and former police officer, lives his life.
I'm looking forward to more books by author Scott James.
