Synopsis

In the pulse-pounding tradition of W.E.B. Griffin and Richard Marcinko, here is a pure adrenaline skydive into enemy territory — a top-notch military adventure written by an Air Force Combat Crewmember who knows firsthand what awaits in the Drop Zone.

Among the U.S. Special Forces’ most valued troops are the Air Force’s Pararescue Teams — “PJs” who drop out of C-130s or HH-60G Blackhawks into places no one else can reach, to retrieve the wounded, the dying ... and the secrets their government will kill to uncover.

Outfitted with the military’s most sophisticated equipment, Master Sergeant Jason Johnson is one of the nation’s best pararescue jumpers. Now he’s been teamed up with a hotshot Marine for his most perilous mission yet.

Johnson must drop behind enemy lines in war-torn Bosnia to find and retrieve evidence of a horrifying war crime: the ethnic cleansing of five thousand civilians through the use of a deadly nerve toxin. But from the moment they leap into the swirling Balkan darkness, Johnson and his partner enter a landscape of unspeakable destruction and despair — and a mission that goes wrong in every conceivable way.

On a race through enemy territory, Johnson is stripped of every means of survival — and only a miracle will bring him out alive....
