Description
In Saigon during the waning days of the Vietnam War, a small-time journalist named John Converse thinks he'll find action - and profit - by getting involved in a big-time drug deal. But back in the States, things go horribly wrong for him. Dog Soldiers perfectly captures the underground mood of America in the 1970s, when amateur drug dealers and hippies encountered profiteering cops and professional killers - and the price of survival was dangerously high.

National Book Award Winner: A "harrowing" novel of the Vietnam era filled with "white-knuckled suspense" (Time).

In Saigon during the waning days of the Vietnam War, a small-time journalist named John Converse thinks he'll find action—and profit—by getting involved in a heroin shipment. But back in the States, things go horribly wrong.

From the New York Times–bestselling author of Damascus Gate, Dog Soldiers is "a dark descendant of Conrad's and Hemingway's adventure stories," perfectly capturing the underground mood of America in the 1970s, when amateur drug dealers and hippies encountered profiteering cops and professional killers—and the price of survival was dangerously high (The New York Times Book Review).

"Powerful, literally chilling." —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Compulsively readable . . . As forcefully as any novel one can think of, this novel conveys the cynicism, the terror, and the appetite for new experiences that have marked recent years." —The New Yorker

"Dog Soldiers is a novel so good, so interesting and serious and funny and frightening, so absorbing, so impressive, so masterful . . . It is splendid, terrific action suspense." —Esquire
