Synopsis: Serving his country as a C.I.A. surgical assassin during the waning years of the Vietnam war, Dakota believes that he has found true joy and happiness in the midst of the decay and depravity that was Saigon only to see his family destroyed when the city falls to the communists forces in the spring of 1975. He blames God and vows to paint the world with the blood of his victims. Each subsequent assignment becomes a bloody statement of defiance. But years later, the nightmares begin and in some appears a Plains Indian who had mentored him as a boy, bringing cryptic messages and life lessons. One day, Dakota serindipitously wanders into a storefront church in Boston where he befriends the pastor who helps him walk away from his life of violence and pain. He changes his name and disappears into the idyllic, rural White Mountains of New Hampshire to, finally, live happily ever after. But when his dark past suddenly catches up with him, he has to decide how to protect those he loves without allowing the beast within to again run wild. What choices will he have to make; what will he have to sacrifice? The Dakota Chronicle is an epic story of redemption and faith borne of fear and rage. It’s one man’s extraordinary life-long journey through pain that brings him to the brink of madness but, always, somewhere out there is the promise of what he calls happily-ever-after. "Thanks, Bob for a great tale! I didn't want to put it down and am still wanting it not to be over." — Dick Ekwall “The genius of this novel is that, within the peace offered in Christ, there is still inevitably a past that rears its ugly head to challenge even the most committed of believers. Dakota is taken back and forth from the intensity of war to the intensity of grace, constantly wondering which one will ultimately win the battle for his soul.” — Rev. Charles Kuthe, Georgia Plain Baptist Church "Bob Pierce creates a captivating narrative that engages from page one and doesn’t let up until the thrilling climax atop New Hampshire’s frigid Mount Washington. This espionage thriller will have you on the edge of your seat. It will make you think, and it will make you cry, and it will keep you guessing long after the last page is turned.” — Author Jacob Grant, The Stormcaller "I just finished reading The Dakota Chronicle by Bob Pierce. I enjoyed it immensely. It's one of those books that grabs you right off and you just want to keep reading. The story itself is one that applies to all of us. No matter how bad we think we are or were in the past, we're never so bad that we can't be forgiven. I sincerely hope that Bob Is writing another book!" — Marilyn Prevuznak
