Brandon Condley survived five years of combat in Vietnam as a marine only to lose the woman he loved to an enemy assassin. Now he is back, working to recover the remains of unknown American soldiers. Then, on a routine mission, Condley finds a body that doesn't match its dog tags. A link is revealed to two notorious assassins who led a deadly Viet Cong ambush against Condley's own men. Now Condley has finally found a purpose: under the auspices of his government job, he is going to hunt down the traitors. Condley's hunt cannot be kept secret from his former enemies, or his friends. And in the shadows that linger from Vietnam's troubled past, he has no way of knowing which side is more dangerous.
