From the Inside Flap
DeLillo's Running Dog, originally published in 1978, follows Moll Robbins, a New York city journalist trailing the activities of an influential senator. In the process she is dragged into the black market world of erotica and shady, infatuated men, where a cat-and-mouse chase for an erotic film rumored to "star" Adolph Hitler leads to trickery, maneuvering, and bloodshed. With streamlined prose and a thriller's narrative pace, Running Dog is a bright star in the modern master's early career.
From the Back Cover
'The best Vietnam novel to appear so far, bearing some relationship to Robert Stone's 'Dog Soldiers' and some to V. S. Naipaul's Guerrillas.' ---Houston PostSee all Product description

well, i got those elements, but i was missing cohesion, plot and character development. i'm disappointed and feel like i wasted a lot of time, during which i racked my brain trying to figure out who any of the characters were and what the hell they were doing -- forget about their motivations. i expected it all to pull together in the end, and i thought that if i just paid enough attention i would get a riveting denouement and payback. no such luck!
i loved white noise, but this one is a bummer!
