A young naive Texan, Terrell Reagan, takes a job with a foreign assignment in Saigon in order to beat the draft, and through attrition, quickly rises to the position as one of the project engineers in RMK-BRJ, a company with over 55,000 employees. Due to his influential position, he gets involved with leasing hundreds of villas to expatriates through the lovely Danielle—referred to as the Dragon Lady of Saigon—and is slowly entrapped into moving pacification cash to village chiefs, stolen PX goods, laundering Vietnamese military trust funds, financing mob operations in New York, and operating a U.S. funded casino for entrapment of black-market money. With over $147 million in today’s money in a Hong Kong account, the Chinese underworld cleverly takes control of his money and gives him forty-eight hours to leave Saigon. The harrowing flight and fight for his money sets the path for the rest of his life.

Mr. Reagan majored in math and physics at Abilene Christian and Baylor University before graduating in Architectural Engineering from the University of Texas in 1966. With the money he made in Vietnam as a civilian project engineer, he built a large financially diversified company. During the savings and loan crises in the late 80s, the government confiscated all of his toys. With his tail between his legs, he moved to London and founded an investment banking company that conducted business in over 78 countries. He is retired and lives in Dallas with his wife, four dogs, and a typewriter.
