Overview

February 1989. Captain Brian Halloran and his Special Forces team deploy to a remote jungle valley in Peru to establish a base for training elite Peruvian counter-narcotics police. Not only are they threatened by violent narco-traffickers, but they face possible attack by the ruthless Shining Path insurgents operating in the valley. Making matters worse, they quickly realize that powerful political forces may be conspiring to ensure their mission fails.

A brilliant young guerrilla leader, Comrade Olivario, commands the most lethal force the insurgents have ever fielded. He must establish the Shining Path as the preeminent political power in the valley, and to do this he must eliminate every threat—including the Green Berets. The stakes are high, and Olivario's plan will not only decide who controls the valley, but very likely the fate of the woman he loves.

Straight from the headlines, White Passage: Red Sun details the motivation behind US involvement in the drug war and accurately describes the tenuous relationship between the drug Cartels and various terrorist insurgencies. The exciting story explains the powerful influence of global political events on the "drug war" and exposes the inner workings of one of the most misunderstood conflicts of our time.

Editorial Reviews

Hy Rothstien
"Good historical fiction often depicts reality better than traditional history. Matt Rowe reaches this level of literary excellence in his novel White Passage: Red Sun. He captures the essence of the threats, challenges, and opportunities faced by U.S. Special Forces soldiers involved in assisting friendly countries eradicate ruthless drug cartels and defeat violent insurgents. The book puts the reader in the middle of the action where young Special Forces troops try to balance U.S. objectives w
Kevin Higgins
"Superb story, told with the authority of a Special Forces soldier who has been there. Matt Rowe perfectly describes the excitement, the hardships, and the feelings of conflict on the edge of the world. This exceptional book is highly recommended."
-Colonel Kevin M. Higgins, US Army Special Forces (Ret.)

    EAGLESTAR'S SECRET - CHAPTER TWO

    Author's Note: Sorry this took so long! I'll try to post more, but I have camp every day except on the weekends. I'll write when I can. On Wattpad I'm kinda having writer's block. Will you guys think of some suggestions for me to write? Preferably something with humans, but Warriors will do too! I'll be posting both this and Shatteredleaf's Destiny on my Wattpad soon. You can find my Wattpad account at he first chapter of Shatteredleaf's Fate. CHAPTER TWO: Eaglestar avoided Riverclaw whenever he could. He sent him out of the camp more than any other warrior (though Riverclaw didn't seem to notice), and spoke to him only when necessary. He also tried to stay out of Mossflame's way, as she was Riverclaw's mate and he had doubtlessly told her everything. The one worry Eaglestar had, and couldn't keep out of his mind, was that if Riverclaw had seen him, others could, too. So today he wouldn't go, and wouldn't go the next day, either. The day after that, however, he would. He would go, would relocate the cats helping him. Would tell them to be extra careful, because after all, it's better to be safe than sorry.
