Awaiting my next orders, I wondered about my future as a sniper assassin, and whether I would be stuck in this job for our government-even after Viet Nam Could I live a normal life and keep knowledge of this deep secret work from my wife in the civilian world? Two small-town Italian-American boys grow up to discover that there are no "civilians" in life. Each man must be a soldier in his chosen army's battle for what is believed right-even if it's wrong. Enlisting in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, John Palumbo is recruited as a sniper and immerses himself in the shady world of assassination. His best friend, Nick Esposito, is fighting his own battles back in the United States with his involvement in the Mafia. But John soon discovers the harsh reality of two parallel worlds: military service, where killing is justified for what's believed to be right for the common good, and the shady underworld of organized crime, where killing is condoned for another kind of justice. As each man delves deeper into his chosen profession, it becomes all too clear that retribution has a very personal price
