Richard Barre wrote this "Wil Hardesty" novel of an ex Vietnam vet who investigates the death of an ex Vietcong's son off the island of San Miguel. There is plenty of SoCal realism to delight anyone familiar with the beach life around Ventura and Santa Barbara.

Also, excellent character development of an array of ATF, cops, oriental gang bangers and mercenaries to delight the discerning reader. Going to be looking for another novel from this series.
