First - I know the Marine this book is written about (Valentine Underwood) and he was in my unit is 29 Palms back in early spring 1991. Deanne (author) got many of the facts of this book WRONG! Underwood was no basketball star and this book is WAY too long for a case which really had very little complications. I applaud Deanne's zeal but her book was poorly researched or worse, a work of fiction.

As a Lance Corporal in the USMC stationed at Twentynine Palms I have had my eyes opened to the violence and poverty stricken community that surronds the base. She is an outstanding writer. 'Semper Fi'

An excellent look at at an amazing sub-culture that few realize exists right in their own backyard. The human dramas portrayed in this book are poignant and, in many ways, pitiful. A compelling read from start to finish!
