Hawk soon finds himself in South Vietnam working for Jason Dorringer, a former lieutenant colonel and the chief executive of Hercules Air Traders. Despite the harsh terrain, he thinks that all his prayers are answered when he stumbles upon a Japanese cache of gold left over from World War II.
As the North Vietnamese Army closes in, Hawk looks to Col. Dorringer for help, and along with his men, they devise a plan to make all of their dreams come true. With sixty-four tons of gold, there should be plenty to go around.
But the promise of such a tremendous bounty has a way of leading to betrayal, cowardice, and murder. Join Hawk as he tries to grab a hold of everything he's ever wanted and make his way to The Gate of the Green Sunset.
