SNIPE HUNT: A Viet Nam War Novel

by

A team of inexperienced Army snipers is sent on a five-day mission into the communist-controlled Michelin rubber plantation with vague orders to intercept a high-priority target. Nash Jaramillo and recently promoted Trey Jefferson are the snipers, along with two volunteer spotters. They are joined by a fifth member of the team, a former Viet Cong who defected, and his background makes the rest of the team uneasy. This hastily assembled squad must search out the enemy in the endless rows of rubber trees, knowing they have no backup. Their first contact with the enemy reveals a valuable and dangerous secret, one that transforms them from the hunters to the hunted. Now they must face deadly encounters with both the enemy and with supposed friends, all in the diminishing hope of making it to their rendezvous with the mechanized infantry platoon that can save them. The non-stop action and excitement will keep you captivated all the way to the surprise ending.
