Author Brinn Colenda has produced a lively, fast paced thriller in his book Chita Quest. Our protagonist, Tom Callahan, an Air Force Colonel and advisor to the President is a modern day Steve Canyon with a very bright future. However, when he receives news of another possible sighting of an American in a remote region of Vietnam that could be his father, missing since he was shot down during the Vietnam war, Callahan casts it all aside to search for his missing father. Right away he realizes that someone would rather have him dead than on the trail of his missing father. Despite attempts on his life and to his family, Callahan makes it to Asia, only to discover that his search has only begun and more danger looms ahead. A well written book, Chita Quest will grab your attention and hold onto it until the very end. I recommend you read this book!

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 cover-ups 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"
