David Elliot was an army officer in the Vietnam war. During his time there he was ordered to kill a traitor and did not. For this many of his men were lost. He left them army injured and disgraced. Now he is having dreams that haunt him. The men who survived with him have been receiving visits from a stranger. All of them are pulled together by a promise they had made while being tortured. The questions is, will they honor it? The men are brought together to rescue David’s wife who has disappeared into Argentina.
Although I had little bit of trouble with the profanity, the descriptive scenes of torture and violence did not bother me. The underlying plot was good. It had a good pace to it. It seemed to be historically accurate, although I don’t claim to be an expert in that field. The Christian aspect of God battling Satan was not one that was heavily preached. It didn’t override the story line enough to turn someone away from reading the book. If you are a fan of thrillers and military fiction then this would definitely be the book for your.
