"No, this title isn't about the War in Vietnam. The plot takes place mostly in the present in California. Former champion surfer Chuck Frye must find his Vietnamese sister-in-law, who has been kidnapped. His search leads him through a Vietnamese ghetto in Orange County and to the realization that there is much more to the kidnapping than he first believed. Parker misses several opportunities to give dimension to his story. It's difficult to care much about his cast of characters. David Colacci does his best with the thin plotting and sparse characters, but even his basically first-rate performance seems to suffer a bit. He's not as enthusiastic as usual. Still, his voice changes, accents, and rhythms are top-notch. A.L.H. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
