Using a combination of fact, fiction, and myth, the author draws the readers into a world of young men who are members of a special squad of soldiers during the Vietnam War. Each one of these soldiers shares a brotherhood as deep as or deeper than bloodlines between siblings.
Yet, there is one among them who is distant and aloof from the other squad members. Who is this figure, and why is he so detached from the others? Is he a serial killer in the midst of these men? How did Tod Moros learn the art of taking lives with a skill set far and above all the rest of the men? The names of these soldiers may be altered, but they are real men who performed their assigned jobs in a very unpopular war.
