Drug use and smuggling operations during the turbulent final year of the U.S. military involvement in Vietnam and a wartime romance take center stage in Steve Crews’ new historical novel, “The Sage of Saigon” (published by Trafford Publishing).

1st Lt. Tom Ross is an investigator with the Military Assistance Command Vietnam’s (MACV) 1st Special Investigations Unit, investigating drug use, drug smuggling and other illegal activities by U.S. military personnel in Saigon, the present-day Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Ross meets a beautiful, young, half-French, half-Vietnamese tour guide named Genevieve Ferrand who unknowingly helps Ross by introducing him to her father, Henri Ferrand. Henri is being blackmailed by his boss to participate in the drug trade, and he and his daughter’s lives are in danger. It will take a deal with Ross to save his daughter’s wife.

“The Sage of Saigon” addresses the never-ending battle between good and evil while dealing with the real issues of greed, corruption, life, love and death.

“The fight between good and evil, in all its forms, never ends,” Crews says, “and unfortunately, good doesn’t always win.”
