S For Story/10380681
The INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD recognized QL 4 by James Garrison in the category of military fiction and HOW WE END UP by Douglas Wells in the category of literary fiction as a distinguished favorite.

JONESBORO, Ark. - s4story -- The competition is judged by experts from different aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. Selected award Winners and Distinguished Favorites are based on overall excellence.

In QL 4, PFC Bell, a newly minted U.S. Army MP, quickly discovers that there's more than a war going on along QL 4, the main road from Saigon into the Mekong Delta. It's old-fashioned crime and corruption. He doesn't want to get involved, just serve out his time and go home, but life for an American MP in Vietnam in 1970 doesn't work that way. QL 4 leads Bell deep into a swamp of deception, mayhem, and death that insinuates its way both into towns the MPs patrol each day and into the old French villa where they live.
