Opening Day: Saigon Red

Opening Day

Many years ago, one of my hobbies was fly fishing. And every year one day in the spring was set by the local Fish and Game, as Opening Day. For months I'd work on my gear, rods, flies, and all the other piscatorial paraphernalia in preparation for the moment when I'd climb, before dawn, into the car (pre-loaded of course), and drive to my not-so-secret spot along with a hundred others to flail away at the fish laying low in the creek. It was about the day, the adventure, the thrill of the change from before fish (BF) to after fish (AF).

Looking back it was quite silly, even crazy, however, on Tuesday March 5, 2019 you too can join me in my own opening day:

This day SAIGON RED will be published.

Just sit down at your computer or Kindle, and at the stroke of mid-night do two things: order the book and, if pre-ordered, begin reading the second installment (just loaded into your device) of the Alex Polonia thrillers. Having, of course, read Venice Black, you have been waiting, nay pining, for the release of the next Alex thriller.

Now's the time! Click the cover, it will whisk you miraculously to the Amazon page, where with one additional click, it will be magically sent to your Kindle, iPad, and/or phone.

Alexandra Polonia is a great character, I love her. She just forty, an ex cop, and has her faults and is quite impatient with the men she knows and works for. Not a single super-power, she still manages to get through the day. However,  in Saigon Red she is faced with a whole new set of challenges that most of us will never have to deal with. Not the least of which are the effects of the Vietnam War still being felt by her family fifty years later.

Here are the reviews by some well know writers in the genre:

“Sometimes you can’t avoid the past. Alex Polonia doesn’t try. She runs smack into it. Saigon Red is good fun, with lots of action, innovative gadgets, and an explosive plot.” —Robert Dugoni #1 international bestselling author of My Sister’s Grave and The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell

“Gregory Randall takes you on a head-spinning journey across the globe where secrets are sacred and family ties are deeper—and more deadly—than you can ever imagine. Buckle up. You’re in for one heck of a ride!” —Matthew Farrell, bestselling author or What Have You Done

“A sizzling read. Gregory C. Randall emerges the reader into the high-stakes world of private corporate security and organized crime. A crackling page-turner that will keep you reading through to the surprising conclusion.” —James L’Etoile, author of At What Cost and Bury The Past

“Very entertaining, with the villains appropriately evil and cunning and the plot lines keeping one guessing. The physical descriptions, especially of Saigon, are on the mark. A fun read. This series has legs.” —Arthur Kerns, author of The Riviera Contract and The African Contract

“It pulses with mood, atmosphere, and adventure. You can smell the street food and the sweat in the back alleys of Saigon.” —Jake Needham, author of ten bestselling Asian crime novels

“Starting off with a bang in the history-laden Ho Chi Minh City of Vietnam, Gregory C. Randall’s second novel featuring Alex Polonia, former Cleveland police detective, quickly brings her and us into a world of intrigue, double-crossing, and family secrets. Filled with action and exquisite details. Very much recommended.” —Brendan DuBois, bestselling mystery author, three-time Shamus Award winner, and James Patterson collaborator
