Synopsis

A man on the brink of destiny...

It is the height of the Vietnam War and young Lt. Brian Holcomb is about to embark on an eight-month tour of duty that will bring him one step away from commanding his own ship.

A woman tempted by desire...

On the homefront, his beautiful wife Maddy is lonely and confused-tantalized by a seductive stranger and an act of betrayal every Navy man dreads, even more than an enemy's face.

A ship at war with itself...

Aboard the guided-missile frigate USS John Bell Hood, he will witness a ship spinning in a tidal pool of recklessness-its crew wasted by drugs, its brass losing its grip on command.

The Edge of Honor

And now, as the Hood steams towards an explosive showdown with North Vietnam's killer MiGs, he will be forced to make the most agonizing choice of his life-one that could make his career...or damn his soul.

With his stunning new thriller, The Edge of Honor, P.T. Deutermann unfurls at full display the mastery he hinted at so brilliantly with his debut Scorpion in the Sea.
