Dukkha—Reverb: A Sam Reeves Martial Arts Thriller
If you're going to fight bad guys, you might as well make them really mad at you!
A few weeks ago, I had a good life—I was a respected Portland police detective and successful martial arts instructor. Then I shot somebody—then I shot two more people. It changed everything. Into this chaos stepped a man and an enchanting Vietnamese woman. Turns out he's my father who I thought was dead, and she's—wow. We got to know each over coffee and, oh yeah, fighting for our lives against Vietnamese gangsters seeking revenge against my father. What a week, glad it's over.
A restful trip abroad, to get acquainted with my 'new' father and the beautiful Mai, sounds like a good idea. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, here I come!
What I didn't expect, in this exotic city, was Lai Van Tan, the crazed mob boss and sex trafficker, still raging against my family for an imagined wrong—now he wants me too. With the aid of some unique Vietnamese War veterans, each with a deadly set of skills, the fight is on. My hope for a restful visit is deteriorating fast.
