Frank E. Hopkins - Abandoned Homes: Vietnam Revenge Murders
Frank E. Hopkins will be appearing to sign copies of his latest novel, Abandoned Homes: Vietnam Revenge Murders.
U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War ended in 1975 when the U.S. abandoned its embassy in Saigon. However, the hate developed during the war years, especially at major universities continued. Proponents of the war, fierce opponents of communism, acted during the war years to remove potential traitors from our society. Those against the war continued their opposition, begun in the 1960s, culminating in the riots and student killings at major universities, including Kent, Maryland, and Wisconsin.
Paul O’Hare, a retired history professor, uncovered a long-hidden domestic impact of the Vietnam War thirty - three years after the war ended when he finds a skeleton in the crawl space of an abandoned home in southern Delaware. The Delaware State Police investigation team, headed by Detective Margaret Hoffman, discovers two more skeletons and the quest for a serial killer begins. Hoffman soon discovers the three skeletons had been graduate students at the University of Maryland during the 1970s, as had Paul O’Hare. He soon becomes a major suspect.
The search for a serial killer reveals a complex web of interrelated former students, a crusading newspaper reporter, and CIA agents and double agents, in this fast-paced suspense novel.
The signing will take place on Saturday, December 22nd, from 1 until 3 PM.
