Yankee Zoo's insight:

Ella Peterson visits Vietnam to touch the ground where her father was killed in 1968. But she comes back with more than just memories. Lost in the jungle, she stumbles across the family who has been holding an American helicopter pilot captive since the 1970s. Liberating him was easy … helping him adjust to life in California would be the hard part.

Especially as powerful people from America and France want the aging pilot dead.

Enter Eric Camber, a CIA agent just two months from retirement. Now he has two weeks to unravel the threads of a mystery that stretches from Asia to Africa and New York to Naples. While Camber races around the world, the returned POW slowly adjusts to his new life … until he realizes he spent most of his life in a cage whilst others became fabulously wealthy.

That’s when the POW decides he wants revenge. And the CIA has to catch up with him … before he finally gets himself killed.
