3.5 - 4 Stars.
KOKO is book one of the BLUE ROSE TRILOGY; it can be read as a stand-alone. It is a lengthy tome (in need of the editor's blade)/meditation on the life-changing horrors of war and abusive parenting (both equally damaging to the child/individual).
Unlike several of Straub's other novels, this one is not a supernatural/horror mystery; it is a straight-forward murder mystery concerning a series of bizarre murders occurring in Southeast Asia that resemble war crimes from the Viet Nam War. A group of American Viet Nam Vets believe one of their own is responsible and decide to find him first before the law does.
