It's an offer Logan can't refuse, especially when a former flame turns up and he has the chance to cover a plumb assignment for "Life" before starting on the book. In short order, he secretly flies to Long Tien, a secret CIA base in Laos where Companysponsored Meo mercenaries fight the Viet Cong and Pathet Lao. As is often the case is war-torn places, not all is as it seems in Long Tien. Although the Meo repeatedly raid suspected VC and PL camps, their intelligence doesn't seem accurate. The raids come a few days after their quarry has fled.
Are they being fed bad intelligence or is someone tipping off the enemy? In this fourth novel starring Logan, the intrepid journalist finds himself entangled in a spy vs. spy scenario with CIA mole-hunters trying to ferret out if anyone is supplying information to the enemy and, if so, who it might be. In this dangerous land, anyone - whether Americans or Laos - can be bought or blackmailed.
