A novel of soldiers and spies in the highlands of Vietnam Army cop Erik Rider is enjoying his war until he’s sent to disrupt Vietcong opium fields in a remote highland province. Rider lands in Cheo Reo, home to hard-pressed soldiers, intelligence operatives, and profiteers of all stripes. The tiny US contingent and its unenthusiastic Vietnamese allies are hopelessly outnumbered by infiltrating enemy infantry. And they’re all surrounded by sixty thousand Montagnard tribespeople who want their mountain homeland back. The Vietcong are on to Rider’s game and have placed a bounty on his head. As he hunts the opium fields, skirmishes with enemy patrols, and defends the undermanned US base, Rider makes a disturbing discovery: someone close to home has a stake in the opium smuggling ring—and will kill to protect it. Written by a master, and as authentic as Matterhorn or Dog Soldiers, Red Flags is a riveting new addition to espionage fiction.

A novel of soldiers and spies in the highlands of Vietnam

Army cop Erik Rider is enjoying his war until he’s sent to disrupt Vietcong opium fields in a remote highland province.

Rider lands in Cheo Reo, home to hard-pressed soldiers, intelligence operatives, and profiteers of all stripes. The tiny US contingent and its unenthusiastic Vietnamese allies are hopelessly outnumbered by infiltrating enemy infantry. And they’re all surrounded by sixty thousand Montagnard tribespeople who want their mountain homeland back.

The Vietcong are on to Rider’s game and have placed a bounty on his head. As he hunts the opium fields, skirmishes with enemy patrols, and defends the undermanned US base, Rider makes a disturbing discovery: someone close to home has a stake in the opium smuggling ring—and will kill to protect it.

Written by a master, and as authentic as Matterhorn or Dog Soldiers, Red Flags is a riveting new addition to espionage fiction.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Intriguing…Jurjevics, himself a Vietnam veteran, is best when describing the details of daily life during war, particularly those involving the abuse of the huge native tribal population of Montagnards.” Publishers Weekly
“Joe Barrett’s voice has a toughness that adds a hint of noir to a war story involving Vietcong opium fields and those—on both sides—who profited from them. Appropriately, Barrett sounds like his narration is coming from the depths of distant and painful memories. He’s also good at dialogue, a must for a novel that has its characters telling much of the story. Juris Jurjevics puts listeners on the ground in wartime Vietnam…The tension that builds throughout makes this the compelling listen they’ve been waiting for. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
