Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

This is a strong, beautifully written adventure from an author whose previous efforts--Flames of Heaven, The Perfect Soldier, and Red Army--marked him as a rising star. American Army Colonel John Church, waiting for his retirement papers, blames himself when a team of his soldiers building a medical clinic in Bolivia is massacred by drug dealers. Church lurches into action to revenge his men and finish their mission, but all kinds of people don't want him to succeed. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly

Peters (Red Army) is closing in the big leagues of thriller writers with this convincing novel of international drug trade. After the mysterious massacre of a U.S. military team on a mission of mercy in remote Bolivia, the aging Col. John Church takes the blame. As a self-imposed penance, he also takes on the aborted mission and unwittingly becomes America's latest hero. What follows is a story of deceit, disease and despair that captivates even as it infuriates with its depiction of men betrayed. Don't be surprised if Peters's climactic battle scene, so penetratingly and movingly written, reduces some readers to tears.

This book is Ralph Peters' best work, period! War in 2020 got me bogged down in technical doodads and gadgets, not so with this offering. This book even examines the tense relationship between the military and how the press spins its coverage. ( Over dinner in one instance). It does so without EVER slowing down its pace, and you'll want to read it again like me. As a matter of fact you may read it thrice...now where is my copy....? Geron L- a reader

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Then Major Peters produced an interesting work on the counterdrug effort, an effort that the US still remains commited to throughout Latin America. It is evident that when you sort through the fictional relationships established in the book, the complexity of providing these nations support from multiple levels of the US Gov. This is a task too large for any single agency or individual. What Mr Peters fails to paint is the total INABILITY of the US military ever taking an active part in any counterdrug effort, restrictions driven by US Law. The US Govt assists in many ways, but the problem remains that drugs have NOT been recognbized for the WMD they represent to America. In the end, US power and capabilities often appear handcuffed by a multiple groups of drug dealers made up of a mix of wise businessmen, political and military associates, and thugs, otherwise known as terrorist organizations.
