234 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.During the Vietnam War, a CIA field agent becomes addicted to the adrenaline rush of combat.

For Shane Wilson, the ex-Marine drug counselor, the introduction of China White not only has devastating consequences for his clients, but tears open old wounds and calls into question a nightmare from the war that he assumed until now was not based on reality.
