“Escape from Saigon” follows the lives of people trapped in the besieged capital city of South Vietnam during April, 1975—the final 30 days of the Vietnam War.
Among them are NBS-TV’s first Vietnamese-American correspondent and the hard-hitting Sam Esposito of The Washington Legend whose coverage infuriated Richard Nixon, an American businessman who risks his life to smuggle out his employees; an American soldier searching for his wife’s relatives, a French expatriate barkeep hanging on the last vestiges of colonialism, along with the remaining US diplomats, including the disillusioned Ambassador Graham Martin, CIA operatives and double agents.
The novel has already won accolades from:
Winston Groom, author of "Forrest Gump" who wrote, “Escape from Saigon brings to life the lives of the men and women trapped in the capital city,” and
Casey Sherman, New York Times Bestselling Author of "The Finest Hours," and "Boston Strong" who wrote, “Escape from Saigon is a sweeping saga…in the grand tradition of Michener and Clavell.”
Llewellyn King, executive producer and host of PBS-TV’s “White House Chronicle" put it this way: “'Escape from Saigon' has the same ring of authenticity as Graham Greene’s The Quiet American. Its portrait of a city in extremis is chilling and completely engrossing. It will take many back and some forward — forward to new foreign entanglements.”
