I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Son of Saigon by David Myles Robinson, which I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received an advance copy to read and review.)
From the opening pages of David Myles Robinson’s novel “Son of Saigon”, through all the twists and turns throughout, we are drawn into this intriguing, suspenseful story.
When we meet Hank Reagan, a 70 year old widower, he is contemplating his death. But then his long-ago love Mai, returns and seeks his help to find the son he never knew about.
The interaction between Hank and his friend Norm are comic at times as they take this buddy search journey to find hank’s 40 year old son.
Robinson touches on so many issues – from death of a spouse, racism, politics, and even depression. He takes us back to the fall of Saigon, to different communities in the U.S.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel – it was quite un-put-downable. I appreciated the complexity of the plot, the interplay amongst the main characters and all the interesting characters met along the journey, but especially the mystery and suspense.
A must read!

Hank and Norm were living the good life: two friends with plenty of money, homes in a lovely California retirement town, and no problems except for the boredom that felt almost fatal. Then Mai came into the picture, the love of Hank’s life during his CIA days in Saigon, desperately needing his help to save the son he’d never known he had. Boredom was over, as Hank and Norm hit the road, following the few clues Mai could give them in search of a man who desperately wants not to be found. What they find is a slew of lies and hidden truths, strange characters, improbable danger that has them fighting to survive, and the happy lesson that their lives are far from over.
