Set amid the social turmoil of the late sixties, Right to Kill is a Brooklyn tale about streetsmart characters, loyalty, romance, gritty combat, murder, and a touch of humor-all contributing to an epic moral dilemma. A law student from a bluecollar neighborhood, Sean Cercone, puts his life on hold to join the Marine Corps. He makes his way from Gravesend, Brooklyn, through Marine officer training, and onto the bloodsoaked fields of Quang Tri. The crucible of vicious combat in Vietnam and a senseless killing back home crush his moral compass. Sean makes a clandestine trip out of the war zone back to his neighborhood to carry out a vengeful mission and subsequently returns undetected to Vietnam. Coming home a second time, damaged in body and mind, his family, boyhood friends, a war widow, and a Holocaust survivor all try to help him attain peace and move on with his life.
