from the back:
"They were the chosen ones - and the ones who chose to be the best. Never before had the United States given so select a group of fighting men such punishing preparation. Now they were headed for their ultimate test of skill and nerve and sacrifice, in a war unlike any they or their country had ever fought before... in a land that most of America still knew nothing about... Vietnam."
A serial-killer thriller that kept me breathless. A serial-killer esacapes from prison and tracks down a former FBI agent who's in Witness Protection. It's simple, he'll kill people until she comes to get him. Chilling. It was full of surprises.
MUCH better than the movie! This true crime/memoir reads very much like fiction, and it's a facinating read! I can't imagine how he got away with everything he did - $2.5 million in bad checks, impersonating a pilot, a doctor, a laywer and SO much more!
This novel qualifies for the title "deep" literature. There are several layers of plot woven together very masterfully. Love, intrigue, action, drama and suspense all roll together in this must-read. It's on my summer reading list every year.
