The year is 1964. Faced with a tough presidential campaign and a deteriorating situation in Vietnam, Lyndon Johnson dispatches superagent Blackford Oakes on a mission to Southeast Asia. With him goes Tucker Montana, a character as colorful as his background is shady.

They have two goals: Tucker to plot interdiction on the Ho Chi Minh Trail, Oakes to oversee a secret operation in the Tonkin Gulf--an operation that will give Johnson the excuse he needs for a greater U.S. military role in Vietnam.

"Tense, chilling, unflaggingly lively...a romp and something more." (The Wall Street Journal)
