Marine shooter specialist Christian Brice is called upon to rescue his arch enemy, President Elect John Cockney from murderous mercenaries while on a trip to Vietnam. With the clock ticking Christian puts his life on hold to once again relieve his former life in Vietnam to extract a man who is really a traitor to everything Christian and America stands for.
AN EPIC TALE OF A MODERN DAY DAVID AGAINST A SEEMINGLY INVINCIBLE GOLIATH In a prior life, Christian Brice lived in the world of military espionage Black Ops. A trained shooter, a killer, an assassin, he lived a life that was solitary, trusting only a few select individuals. When Christian was on his missions, he trusted even fewer. His targets were never personal and there was no hatred in him, just a sense of duty. Christian repeatedly carried out his duties to the letter, until he was assigned to take out an NVA Colonel and rescue a captured American, CIA Section Leader - Spook - John Cockney. John Cockney is the only man Christian has ever hated. Cockney is a traitor and murderer, selling weapons, secrets and illegal drugs to the enemy, for personal gain. With his Vietnam duty behind him, and now in private life, Christian has sworn himself to a new mission, a righteous mission, to expose Senator John Cockney, who is now running for President. Christian is framed, sentenced to prison, losing his family and former life in the process. Using a new identity, Christian Brice starts his new life as Raymond Miller, a journalist living in a secluded community in Colorado. When Senator Cockney is kidnapped in Vietnam by terrorists, only days before the national elections, there’s only one man that can carry out a rescue, but he’s officially dead. Having kept his aging body in condition, Raymond is commissioned to go back into the jungle to once again rescue his archenemy. This struggle is tantamount to the culmination of his life struggle to right a wrong, and perhaps prevent America from starting World War Three.
