A small elite team of U. S. Army Rangers had racked up
an amazing record of success in searching for American
prisoners and MIAs in Southeast Asia. Despite the
growing number of missions, they had never lost a man.
Without even a hint of anything astray, they are
ambushed. And the commanding officer is killed. The
team brings his body home and participates in his
burial at Arlington. Each man privately wondering
what the future holds.
Leaving the cemetery, in the very heart of Washington, D.C.,
the team is attacked with heavy automatic fire. Only
by the slimmest margin, do they escape. And wonderings
about the future have vanished. To survive, they must
quickly answer key questions such as, "Who?" and "Why?"
The trail leads them to an army missile storage depot where a number of cruise missiles are missing. More than 70 employees of an electronics firm who recently made modifications on the missiles have disappeared. Much to their surprise, they learn the CIA owns the electronics firm!
They soon become involved in much more than they ever imagined: crooked deals being made with Mexican officials and a plot to use the missing cruise missiles against an array of targets. But who is behind all of this, and why do the unknown assailants want them dead? What could they possibly know?
Time is running out. Everywhere they turn, someone is trying to take them out. They need answers NOW!
