"Three men meet in Vietnam and become involved in a psychological struggle in a world of mysticism, black marketing, CIA espionage, revenge, and horrific helicopter battle campaigns.

The story begins when FBI agent Alignman investigates an occult movement and its links to drugs and politics. To discover its origin and to capture its leaders, Alignman encounters Jarrett who is a retired CIA agent, voluntarily living in a mental ward. Only Jarrett understands the origin and the personality of the occult movement that first began in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive of 1972.

In Dr. Peterson’s ofice, Jarrett recalls a series of events which bring into an acute focus his struggle to maintain his identity against the whims of evil and good. Badlock and Nicewander enter Jarrett’s arena of good and evil where all realities intertwine and merge into a surrealism recalling Dante and Faust. The Birdcatcher, who resides in Hades, also enters the stadium of this mystical struggle and sets in motion the terrible and horrific events that will spell either the damnation or the redemption of Jarrett."
