This is going to score really low. Worst Book ever.

******Dad gave me this to read!!!!. Why the stars and exclamation points you ask? Well my Dad (83yr) didn't read. I convinced him to give it a try after my Mum passed away 2 yrs ago...and to secretly keep him out of my hair a bit. I gave him a box load of easy books which he struggled with at first but now he's borrowing books from his next door neighbour and picking some up at the 2nd hand store. Lesson is you are never too old. ;) ( )

Interesting chase story about a group of Vietnam vets who are after the loot in Hong Kong, around the time of the handover to the Chinese. ( )
