Overview

A war like Vietnam produces few legends. But one certified legend is Johnny Able, the single-minded kid from Muskogee they call Dog, because of his almost superhuman gift for sniffing out his prey. He's a crack Marine sniper going for a record one hundred kills, and not the VC, the NVA nor his own brass are going to stop him. With a bounty on his head and not a fiber of fear in his body, he commands an almost supernatural awe from the enemy and terror from the men who fight beside him. As quiet as he is deadly, Johnny conceals a shattering personal secret that only war can tear from a man's soul -- a secret that will make his one hundredth kill the most explosive of all.

Editorial Reviews

Brian Kelley
Tough, raunchy, gritty, but surprisingly tender...if you never made it to 'Nam, this book will take you there...unbeatable!

Few writers know men or war as well as Chuck Sasser. This is a marvelous rendering of both.
