Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's 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. (Jan.)

    Excellent novel...until the end

    This novel reads wonderfully, with great discourse on the declining role of a 'Boy Scout' officer in South America. This novel works well, except for what feels like a rushed ending. Do not become too attached to any charcter in this book, or you will find yourself cursing LtCol Peters. Reading this book (and LtCol Peters biography) one is forced to wonder how much of this is autobiographic.
