One Man's Search for his POW/MIA Father
Were American POWs left behind at the end of the Vietnam War—either by accident or design?
Colonel Tom Callahan is driven to find out—his own father is still listed as Missing In Action. What Callahan doesn’t understand is how politically explosive the issue is, domestically and internationally. As he begins his quest, friends and associates meet violent deaths. Aided by his Australian-born wife, Colleen, his journey takes him halfway across the world to Vietnam, China, Mongolia, and ultimately, Siberia. He is helped and hindered by unexpected friends and cunning, deadly enemies.
Bestselling Author, William B. Scott states:
“Chita is a unique, fast-paced thriller that weaves nasty Washington coverups with assassinations, international intrigue, and air combat”
Walter E. “Buck” Buchanan III, Lt Gen, USAF (ret) tells us:
“Brinn Colenda once again proves himself to be a master storyteller”

I liked this book so much I have ordered a paperback of it and the previous one in the series as well. I will get a copy of the third when it comes out. Brinn Colenda writes what he has experienced, but doesn't use military jargon that would make most people have to go look it up. This was a great book, full of globetrotting and fast paced action. You will like this one!
Mr. Colenda has done it again! Loved the twists and turns and the details of southeast Asia. So many of the characters reminded me of people I actually knew in the Air Force. What an Epilogue!! Hope there is a new book in the oven!!! Think some of the bad guys are still out there lurking!!
Great story. A real page turner.
Brinn has a real flare for story-telling. The characters are likeable, the dialogue is smooth and fluid, and the plot and pace make it hard to put the book down. I am looking forward to his next book.
A good read. Colenda's character development is first rate. The reader becomes immediately invested in members of the Callahan clan and their adventures. The underlying premise of this novel addresses a lingering issue that all patriotic Americans, especially Vietnam Veterans, would like explored and resolved: "What has become of our MIAs?" Washington should take notice, and act as decisively as Col. Callahan. E.J. Lehre, CAPT, USNR(Ret)
Brinn did an excellent job creating a story that any military person, especially Air Force, will want to read. His personal knowledge of Air Force life provides the military reader with a "been there, seen that, done that" feeling of inclusion. It is an easy read and I finished it in less than a day. Brinn keeps an exciting pace with plenty of twists and turns. I highly recommend Chita Quest.
