Dispatched for a classified illegal mission on the Cambodia border, Monroe succeeds beyond expectation, only to be abandoned behind enemy lines and left for dead. Now Monroes superiors need his lifeless body, back and bagged, to prevent their own court-martial. But a cunning VC marksman knows better and this American sniper must be killed before he compromises the North Vietnamese Armys meticulously planned New Year offensive. Snipers both, these two silent men cat-and-mouse through the delta terrain, a verdant landscape rendered brutal by political intrigue and harrowing firepower. And when commanders discover Monroe may be alive, the brass must make an impossible choicewhether to rescue or kill him.
