IN VIETNAM THEY TRAINED HIM TO DO WHAT NO ONE ELSE WOULD.

For seventeen years, Bob King, who began his military career as a member of the Special Forces Unit in Vietnam, led an incredible double life, carrying out the U.S. government's high-risk missions-- without involving its military. Then, in 1992, King and his men, secret members of a U.S. Tactical Reconnaissance Team, were sent to Colombia. The mission was "an easy breather," until the men walked into an ambush and found out the real reason they were there. They had been sent to die.

IN SOUTH AMERICA, HE HELPED THEM FIGHT THEIR DIRTY LITTLE WAR.

With three men dead, and King himself wounded, the band of mercenaries began a desperate battle for survival-- and for the truth-- that led from South America all the way to Washington, D.C. Now, in this chilling, action-packed book, Bob King goes public: with the covert operations he carried out, the hidden deals he witnessed, and the horrific shadow war he survived-- against a U.S. government desperate to bury its secrets and its own men.

NOW HE KNEW THEIR SECRETS. AND THEY WANTED HIM DEAD.

About the Author

Bob King was born and raised in Wenatchee, Washington. After graduating from high school, he enlisted in the army and eventually reached the rank of sergeant. While serving in Vietnam in 1973, King experienced his first encounter with the military's "black operations" as an unwitting participant in Operation Dragon Flower. In 1975, he was picked to be the leader of one of the government's most covert operative teams, Spooky 8. This is his first book.

I read this book in less than 2 days. It is an eye opening experience to learn that US government is involved in killing our own honored men and women. How many more have been left to die at the hands of "America: The Great?" This book will make you want to take a close, hard look at our government and those who run it. What are the dirty secrets of those in power and how many brave soldiers have to die at the hands of a corrupt and dirty government?
