Publisher's Summary

The son of a celebrated journalist searches for the truth to his father’s dark past.

Everyone knows Hawkins is not the reporter his father - a famous war correspondent - was. Hawkins’s fondness for drink disqualifies him from the kind of reporting that is his birthright. But with a father like his, the newspaper cannot let him go. Instead, the board has asked him to write a biography of his father - a fluff project designed to keep Hawkins out of trouble. But the assignment leads to unsuspected, shocking revelations.

Hawkins’ father made his name as a war correspondent in Vietnam, where terrible secrets still remain buried. When Hawkins digs into the story of one raid - a skirmish that produced four heroes, a future president among them - the horrible truth he discovers will change his life forever.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Brian Freemantle including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
