Synopsis: As powerful men in Washington push hard to approve funding for the Next-Generation Fighter-Bomber, a controversial "miracle" war machine with a $300 billion price tag, a savage terror bombing levels an aircraft research facility in France. The loss of lives is staggering--and retribution begins even before the guilty are clearly identified. Lieutenant Colonel John Reynolds struggles to remain an honorable man and a loyal soldier, but soon starts questioning his faith in the military he serves. Suddenly, John Reynolds is on every player's list of targets--and he doesn't even know why. From the Pentagon to the dark side of corporate America, Ralph Peters takes us on a swift, sinister, and hypnotic journey that turns today's headlines into a timeless tale of greed, human folly...and the bitter price of honor.
Review: "I do not imagine that a one-man crusade disguised as a thriller can change much," says Ralph Peters, career soldier turned bestselling author, in an afterward to Traitor. Maybe not, but everybody on the Beltway who deals with (or votes on) defense budget issues should read this beautifully crafted story about a man of principle trying against all odds to do the right thing.
Lieutenant Colonel John Reynolds is "one of a legion of staff officers sweating blood to keep an underfunded Army alive." The army is faced with even more savage budget cuts if a project called NGFB (Next Generation Fighter Bomber) gets the approval that its corporate sponsor, Macon-Bolt Industries, seeks. Two of Reynolds's old Army buddies--a general and a former officer turned lobbyist for Macon-Bolt--die suddenly and suspiciously. But it's not until his own live-in ladyfriend, singer Tish O'Malley, is killed by a car bomb that Reynolds begins to realize his own life has somehow become linked with the fate of NGFB.
There are some superb scenes of action and many worthy opponents, especially a totally believable military madman called Roscoe "Punchy" Hunt who destroys works of art for dramatic effect. But the real villain in Traitor is a giant military-industrial-political complex determined to suck up as much public money as it can. People like Reynolds and Peters can only nip at its heels. The author has also expressed his strong opinions in the acclaimed nonfiction book Fighting for the Future: Will America Triumph? --Dick Adler
