Toll For The Brave by Jack Higgins

Toll For The Brave

Ellis Jackson woke up hugging a twelve-bore shotgun. In the next room, his mistress and his best friend lay naked on the bed, their heads blown to pulp. Back in England at last, Ellis Jackson had finally cracked. Active combat, a Viet Cong prison camp and the callous treachery of his lover and interrogator, Madam Ny, had taken their toll. Ellis Jackson was out of his mind. Or was he?
Maybe it would all have been easier to take if he really had been mad

Surviving a helicopter crash, Ellis Jackson is taken prisoner in Vietnam and placed in a special camp designed for brainwashing. His beautiful captor, Madame Ny, seduces him into confusion, but fellow prisoner Brigadier General James Maxwell St. Clair, provides him his only link to sanity and his only link to escape. What happens 20 years later brings him full circle.
