Killing Grace: A Vietnam War Mystery is a work of fiction penned by author Peter Prichard in the historical drama, mystery, and intrigue subgenres. It is best suited to the general adult reading audience. We enter a captivating narrative tale set against the tumultuous backdrop of the Vietnam War in 1967, where Lieutenant Ben Kinkaid, a US military police officer, finds himself entangled in a complex web of intrigue. When he encounters US Army clerk Tommy Banks and his girlfriend, Grace Waverly, on the streets of Saigon after curfew, things take a suspicious turn. Grace presents herself as a peace tourist, but is actually a member of RAW, an anti-war group with a radical agenda. What unravels is a larger conspiracy involving an opium-dealing arms dealer and a myriad of spies.
Author Peter Prichard has crafted a highly immersive historical fiction work that gives a fully cinematic and deeply resonant sense of period and attitude from cover to cover. The story is rich in authentic details, immersing readers in the chaotic atmosphere of the 1960s, which I found thrilling and unpredictable as a result. As Ben and Tommy pursue justice, love, and survival in a world ravaged by war, Prichard skillfully weaves a suspenseful tale around them that is more than just a backdrop, but the capturing of a whole shift of culture. Overall, Killing Grace is a compelling exploration of the complexities of the Vietnam War era, blending elements of mystery, espionage, and historical fiction to create a truly unforgettable reading experience.
