This book may have been published 25 years ago, but it’s really good and it shows just how good an author Tess Gerritsen is! It’s a quick, compelling read – you won’t be disappointed! I’ve enjoyed every single book of hers that I’ve read. Before Tess made it big writing her popular Rizzoli/Isles series, she wrote romantic thrillers, and Never Say Die is one of them. It was originally published in 1992 has been rereleased in light of her new found fame. While not as good as her current books, you can definitely recognise her writing, and it's still a good story.
Willy Maitland is searching for her father who died when his plane went down during the war 20 years previously, but when people start dropping dead, she realises there's something that is trying to be covered up. Woven through this is Willy's relationship with Guy Barnard, who insists on helping her, but Willy suspects his motives. Some of the plot is fairly predictable, especially the romance aspect, but the thriller side keeps it moving along nicely and the ending is good. I would say I prefer her newer books which don't have the big romance aspects that the older ones do, but it was still really enjoyable to read, and I'll probably keep picking up her old ones.

Physical anthropologist, Guy Barnard works for the US Army ID Lab, identifying remains of MIA US soldiers. On his way to Saigon to do just that, he is blackmailed into looking for a US pilot turned traitor who flew for the VC, known as “Friar Tuck”. Willy Jane Maitland has come to Asia to try to find her father, Wild Bill Maitland, MIA in 1970, but whom she and her mother believe is still alive. Wild Bill is also believed by some to be the notorious Friar Tuck. Coincidentally (??), Guy and Willy encounter each other in Bangkok, where Guy is drawn to Willy not only because she can help him find Wild Bill, but also because he is really very attracted to her. As Guy and Willy try to track Bill down, they are shadowed at every turn: the CIA? The Vietnamese Government? Someone acting for Bill? There are many throats slit and Willy finds herself wondering if there is anyone she can trust, but eventually, help comes from and unexpected quarter. This Gerritsen offering has plenty of action, drama, romance and a bit of sex. The heat and humidity of South East Asia is palpable and the dialogue is credible. It has an interesting plot with a few twists. Excellent early Gerritsen. This is quite a departure from Tess Gerritson's other books. I began reading her with her first book in the mid nineties. Most of her books have had a medical theme as that is her background. I usually don't care for books dealing with the Vietnam era, but this is a good one. I think this is a standalone novel, but wouldn't mind if she writes more in this vein. I read one of Tess Gerritsen's medical thrillers once and it was okay. I came across this in a sale and as the story sounded interesting I thought I'd give her another go. Well, this was just about okay too. Never Say Die is a thriller about a man and woman who team up against their better judgement to dig up some ghosts in Vietnam. Throughout the story there is a rather pathetic willtheywon'tthey romance with the woman alternating between calling the man a cad and wanting to press herself to his manly chest. This is a constant theme throughout the book. There is a thriller hiding in there somewhere, but I found that pretty mediocre too. It's not often I get barely 30 pages into a book and give up. I'm a perfectionist and even if I'm hating every word on a book's page, I'll usually finish it just to say I saw it through.
That is an impossibility with this book. Every single cliche from ghastly 80s romance/adventure films comes into play here.
Tess Gerristsen What the fuck The first book I have read by TG(if we don't count NRftD) and the reason I wanted to check on her works was TV series Rizzoli & Isles(Haven't read the books)
This book has nothing to do with that series
Maybe it was Bill Haber's success (?)
Wasn't that bad though but I expect more or I guess I expected too much. I enjoyed this book. I was surprised how different it was to other Gerritsen books, I felt like I was reading a different author!
It's the story of Willy, a young woman searching Vietnam for the truth about her father who was shot down during the war. She is joined in her search by Guy, an ex soldier, a man who initially has dubious motives for helping her but proves to be fundamentally decent. How their relationship develops is a bit predictable and is written in a rather old fashioned style, similar I believe to a Barbara Cartland story, though I haven't actually read any of her books!
There are attempts on Willy's life and suspicion falls on a variety of characters, which maintains our interest. The story moves at a fast pace and has a couple of good twists at the end.
As a stand alone thriller I enjoyed the book. If you are a Gerritsen fan looking for her normal type of edgy detective story then you will find this different but still I think enjoyable. The story starts with William (Wild Bill) Maitland piloting a flight into Southeast Asia during the war, with cargo onboard that noone would talk about, as well as a silent VIP passenger. When the plane drew flack and tracers, and they were hit, they were nonchalant, but suddenly there was more to it than that, and the plane disappeared from the radar.
Twenty years later, Willy Maitland was searching for her father. Her mother was dying, and had never forgotten her husband, and begged Willy to find some answers before it was too late. But everywhere Willy turned she hit a wall of silence. Noone knew anything, everyone told her to drop it, all government departments were stonewalling her. She was growing more and more frustrated, until she decided to go and search the countryside for herself. She was a determined young lady, feisty and courageous, but she had no idea what she was letting herself in for.
When mercenary Guy Barnard offered to help her, she didn’t want to trust him. Heavens, she didn’t trust anyone! Let alone a person like Barnard. But after only just escaping with her life, twice, she realized there was something more to what was happening than just a girl looking for her missing father.
The jungles were overgrown and scary, the mosquitos thick, the heat oppressive, but the people who were out to stop Willy and Guy finding out twenty year old secrets were deadly! They were only one step ahead of these assassins, but would it remain that way? The desolation Willy felt when yet another person died whom they had just talked to, just wouldn’t leave her.
Would they find what they were seeking, or would the assassins find them first? Another wonderful thriller by Tess Gerritsen, an edge of your seat ride, one that you won’t be able to put down until you turn the final page. Highly recommended.
