Description :

On a dark haunting Saigon night in late-summer 1968, two volunteer American Red Cross nurses disappeared without a trace. Officials dismiss their disappearance as being “Absent Without Leave” (AWOL) and with the passage of time, they were simply forgotten.

At least until thirty-seven years later when Chet Ross, a Vietnam veteran, is experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) flashbacks and nightmares of the former war-ravaged country. While mourning the death of his wife, Chet Ross is mesmerized as he watches a tropical depression form over the Bahamas.  Before long, this little-known storm turns into Hurricane Katrina. This triggers Chet's memory of a tropical depression in Vietnam in 1968 that developed into Typhoon Cobra. He recalls the destructive forces and surging waters of Typhoon Cobra that are almost identical to those of Hurricane Katrina. Chet asks himself, why don't the New Orleans elected officials seem to care? Remembering Typhoon Cobra's devastation was way beyond any forecasts or predictions and thousands of poor villagers lost their lives along the Mekong Delta.

As if drawn by an unexplainable force, Chet stumbles upon the story of the two missing nurses. He is more determined than ever before to investigate as he relives every one of his nightmares. In his relentless pursuit of the truth, Chet disregards his own health concerns. By accident or fate, Chet meets a man named Ta Ning, who was witness to a pivotal event when he was a young orphaned teenager. Ta's tragic story reminds us all that during a war, the worst of humanity shows its ugly face, torturing its victims in unimaginable ways.

Chet's travels reawaken the atrocities and corruption of war along with his sad but remarkable connection to the two nurses. Although this is a fictional story, some of the dates, events and places are real and the author has used his own Vietnam experience to help develop the storyline.

Steve Catto
About: Steve Catto is an old man, or at least that's what it says on his birth certificate. He was born in Yorkshire, but his parents took him to Australia when he was six years old and he grew up there, sometimes racing cars across the desert.

He was never very good at school, but the one thing he did learn was how to learn, and he started writing programs for the computer at the local university, much to the disdain of his teachers who told him that he would ‘never make a living out of that rubbish'. In his late teens he returned to the UK, and his parents followed him – which wasn't what he wanted because he was hoping to get away from them. His first proper job was in the computer department of an infamous Oxford publishing company, and he subsequently went on to write software for electricity control systems, and simulators for the military. He started to fly gliders and wrote programs to analyse the data from aircraft flight recorders, where he also learned to fly, and crash, lots of other types of aircraft as well – which was the best part of the job. At various times in his career he has also lived and worked in France, Switzerland, and Canada, and he now lives in Scotland. Since appearing in school plays as a child he has performed almost continuously on the amateur stage, and spent a few years scuba diving. These two things have nothing to do with each other. In terms of his pedigree as an author he has written many technical manuals and filled in countless timesheets, so is well versed in the art of conjuring up works of fiction, however he has never written a novel before, especially not one that involves a blonde girl and a man with a bow and arrow, but he did once spend three weeks working in a factory that made handles for buckets.
