Review

 I read a lot of action and thriller books, so this is a genre I'm familiar with. I'dnever read anything from Marc Liebman, but the premise seemed intriguing andI'm always on the lookout for fresh new talent, so I was curious to see how hewould deliver in this one "Forgotten". Mr. Liebman is unarguably a very talentedand creative writer, but more than that he genuinely impressed me with histhorough world-building and interesting characters and inventiveness on manylevels. Great detailing gives this story authenticity on many levels. Wegenuinely feel transported into this complex, epic tale from the brutal,violent warzones and POW camp, to Julia/Janet's sexy and dangerous'activities'. And speaking of sex there is plenty here and it is very hot! Alltoo often I read works that feel clearly derivative of other books (especiallyin erotica), and although I appreciate literary influences (as is felt here aswell), when something this original comes along it is a refreshing change ofpace from the norm! It wasn't predictable or cliché, and sometimes it wascutthroat and harsh,  and other times Iwas nearly breathless from the intensity and violent passion. Other times I waschuckling aloud at the witty banter.  Forsuch a long book I finished it in less than a week, and went through so manyhighs and lows, it felt like a rollercoaster. I enjoyed the ending and wasactually hoping that this might be the beginning of a series but this appearsto standalone novel. Wraps up well and the glossary at the end is handy too.Actually feel like I learned something! I recommend it for adults only as ithas graphic language, violence and sex scenes, but they work well with thestoryline and do not feel gratuitous. (5 stars) Leo Gregory

From the Author

Theidea for Forgotten began with one ofthe botched rescues in Cherubs 2.  A pilot - Randy Pulaski - is left behind byan aircraft commander who turns out to be a coward. 
         Rather than have just one POW, thereare ultimately six, all of who wind up prisoners of a South Vietnamese armyofficer by the name of Pham.  He turns traitor and gets a commission in the North Vietnamese Army.  He is also in his family business of turningraw opium into heroin.  Now operating inremote western North Vietnam, the POWs are his laborers who process theopium.  Pham's long term goal is ransomthe American's back to the CIA for millions
         To make the story more interesting, Imade the wife of the captured pilot an anti-war activist and a member of theStudents for a Democratic Society's Action Wing.  They were known for their firebombing ofarmed forces recruiting centers as well as attacks on fuel depots and otheracts of violence.
         Then, to make her even more memorable,I turned Janet Pulaski into Cuban trained assassin who ultimately goesfreelance.  All this unfolds when, afternine years in captivity after the war ends, the POWs are rescued only to findout that there are people who didn't want them alive.
         While I am not a conspiracy theorist,like many Americans, I believe that we did not get a full accounting of thePOWs captured by the communists whether they were in Laos, Cambodia or NorthVietnam.  Too many were known to be capturedbut never turned up at the end of the war.Some, the Vietnamese admitted were killed by their own citizens orduring interrogation.  During the war,the North Vietnamese never provided an accurate list of the men who were beingheld.
         Others may have parachuted into thejungle and either were severely injured or starved to death or could have beenkilled by snakes or other predators.   In Laos, American pilots if captured by thePathet Lao, were summarily executed.  InCambodia, it was a crapshoot as to what would happen to an American pilot ifshot down and captured.
         So Forgottenis my tribute to the American pilots who were shot down and didn't comehome and those who were captured and were fortunate enough to come back totheir loved ones.
