Summary

Two murders, thousands of miles apart: one in London, one in Bangkok. The bodies brutally mutilated: an ace of spades impaled upon their chests. In Washington, a US senator receives photographs of the corpses. And realises that his past has come back to haunt him.
Nick Wright is the detective trying to solve the mystery of the double killing. His hunt for a motive takes him to the tunnels in Vietnam, where the American tunnel rats fought the dirtiest battle of the war against the Viet Cong. But there is a killer protecting the secrets of the tunnels. At whatever cost...

another great leather novel

I've read all but 2 of Stephen Leathers novels and, there isn't a bad book amongst them. as usual this book is full of great action with a gripping plot. One of Leathers strong points is his ability to draw multiple plot lines together to produce great books.

Confusing....

What disappointed you about The Tunnel Rats?

The narration is all over the place,hard to follow the storyline as in its description.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Didn't make it there yet.

Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Thornley’s performances?

No.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Tunnel Rats?

Quite a lot.

Any additional comments?

no.
