The Reckoning

A Thriller

The Reckoning

Bestselling author Jeff Long's apocalyptic thriller Year Zero was hailed as "superbly original...terrifying and exquisite."

-- Dan Brown, ş bestselling author of The Da Vinci Code

Now Long enters new territory with an intricate,suspense-charged journey into the Vietnam War'shaunting legacy.

The killing fields of Cambodia hold nightmarish secrets of the past -- and the present -- for Molly Drake, an intrepid photojournalist covering the U.S. military's search for the remains of an American pilot shot down during the Vietnam War. A flight helmet buried among the Khmer Rouge victims is her first discovery -- and far from the most explosive. Led by a mysterious expatriate to the ruins of an ancient city, Molly embarks on a harrowing search for evidence of an entire GI patrol, lost thirty years ago. Now, as a typhoon descends on the remote jungle fortress, Molly discovers that a war she never knew never ended -- and it's up to her to solve a forgotten murder among the warriors left behind....Jeff Long's unnerving novel of predation, betrayal, and resurrection is a masterwork of "excellent storytelling" (Rocky Mountain News).
