Overview

You had to lose something personal in a war. Otherwise, it was just a war like any other war. You were there and you did what you had to do and then it was a part of your past and you went on to the next war.

“What happened to you in Central America?” Kovic demanded. “Jack, lots of men have lost an arm. But it’s not just that, is it? Talk to me about it, buddy. What happened to you?”

Jack Dempsey Malanga had worked with the CIA before. He is known as a man who gets the dirty work done, in war and in between wars. Things begin to turn bad when his CIA contact in Central America asks, “Malanga, have you ever killed an American citizen?”

The American citizen is a gunrunner supplying weapons to communist guerrillas in the mountains of El Salvador. To get to him, Malanga must join the guerrillas and earn the trust of their ruthless leader and of Suyapa, a beautiful young rebel fighter who is the gunrunner’s lover. That’s when things become complicated. For Jack Malanga, El Salvador would soon become one too many wars. And his losses more than just his right arm...

His books and novels (more than 50 published) have sold millions in a number of languages throughout the world. They include best-sellers like One Shot-One Kill; The 100th Kill; Detachment Delta and OSS Commando series; The Return; A Thousand Years of Darkness...
