His name was carved in the black marble of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. He'd been reported lost in a helicopter shot down by the Vietcong. Only he hadn't been in that helicopter when it crashed. And he wasn't dead. Instead he'd spent 20 years in a Vietcong prison after being betrayed by three men - one of them his best friend. During 20 years of almost total darkness in a rat-infested cell, Keith Johnson has had time to plan. So, like a ghost, he has returned to even the score. He has no intention of killing his betrayers; he wants to ruin their lives like they ruined his. Johnson's elaborate plan is meant to cause the three to self-destruct, and given their characters, it ought to be easy. But his scheme goes haywire with consequences he neither foresees nor wants. Crux is a story of revenge gone too far, an audiobook full of hair-raising excitement.

Aellen's second novel (after Redeye ), is a story of betrayal and revenge. During the Vietnam War, Keith Johnson witnesses the murder of a U.S. soldier. To silence him, three members of his own platoon frame him for drug possession. But before he can be tried, Johnson is captured by the North Vietnamese and becomes one of the "forgotten" POWs. He escapes 20 years later, determined to destroy the men who set him up. Although individual scenes are graphic and effective, especially a final confrontation at the Vietnam Memorial, Aellen fails to inspire credibility for key plot developments. Johnson is imprisoned under conditions reminiscent of The Count of Monte Cristo and The Man in the Iron Mask. He finances his vengeance by discovering a lost treasure, and acquires a Thai sidekick whose speech and behavior seem derived from old Charlie Chan movies. As the implausibilities pile up, melo drama overwhelms adventure.
