Saigon by Michael Avallone and Valerie Moolman

by Michael Avallone and Valerie Moolman

"Little Paris" where love talk is wire tapped and each caress can lead to sudden death.

Claire La Farge, a widow of a French intelligence officer, lives in a large rice and tea plantation in North Vietnam. She receives a coded message in the form of a knotted belt (quipu) from a former associate of her husband. She sends her trusted servant, Saito, to Saigon to place an advert in the personal column of the Times of Vietnam hoping to contact former colleagues of her late husband who can decode the message. Raoul Dupre, a former French intelligence officer and businessman in Saigon, reads the ad and makes contact with AXE. Nick Carter is sent to Saigon with orders to help Raoul Dupre contact Claire La Farge.
