From the back of the book: Intel at MACV headquarters in Saigon indicates that Charlie is building up for another push toward the capital. A covert cross-border operation is mounted into Cambodia to assess the enemy's strength and location and check out suspected military and VC strongholds. It's a sneak-peek-and-get-out-fast operation. Secrecy is vital, since Cambodia is considered neutral territory and the mission would contravene the rules of war. When the recon patrol fails to radio in, the brass at MACV fear the worst: ambush. U.S. Army Special Forces Captain Mack Gerber is sent to find the missing patrol. But when Gerber and his unit are hit by an implacable enemy tipped off about their arrival, the conclusion is clear: someone at MACV is passing along top-secret information to the enemy. A traitor in their midst puts U.S. soldiers in deadly jeopardy. Gerber's got to find the leak fast - and plug it at its source! Eric Helm is the pen name of two Vietnam veterans, men who saw it all, did it all and lived to tell it all.
