A novel in "the tradition of Michener and Clavell . . . A sweeping saga that places you dead center in the tumultuous final days of the war in Vietnam" (Casey Sherman, New York Times–bestselling author of The Finest Hours). Saigon is falling. With the North Vietnamese Army approaching, the city is quickly falling into chaos as the city's inhabitants look for any way to escape. Among them are Matt Moran, a soldier searching for his Vietnamese wife's terrified relatives; Lisette Vo, a Vietnamese-American TV reporter who risks her life to chronicle the events of that fateful time; and an American businessman who "adopts" three hundred of his employees in a bid to sneak them out. All of these gripping stories and more occur while the enemy tightens its stranglehold on the city. Full of the human triumph and heartbreaking tragedy that marked the end of the Vietnam conflict, "Escape From Saigon brings to life the war-torn lives of the men and women, soldiers and civilians alike, each trying to escape the fall of Saigon before it engulfs them all. A vivid, unvarnished vision" (Winston Groom, author of Forrest Gump).
