From the Jacket

Getting old is hell. J. P. Beaumont is finally taking some time off to have knee-replacement surgery. But instead of recuperating, he is plunged into one of the most perplexing and mind-blowing mysteries he's ever faced. A series of dreams takes Beaumont back to his early days on the force with the Seattle PD, and then even earlier to his time in Vietnam. Are these drug-induced hallucinations? Beaumont doesn't think so—not when images from the past lead him to present-day murders . . . and dead bodies from the Second Watch that won't stay buried.

New York Times bestselling author J. A. Jance delivers one of the most dramatically thrilling and powerful novels of her career—an emotional and resonant mystery that looks at one of the most painful and divisive moments in our history—Vietnam—and raises questions about duty, honor, and the debt that is owed to those who sacrifice their lives for their country.
