The President of the United States can’t decide how to respond to a classified video showing the Taliban’s brutal treatment of their captive - a female helicopter pilot of the Army’s elite Special Operations Aviation Regiment. Afraid that a botched rescue will further destabilize foreign policy and end his presidency, the Commander-in-Chief falters. But when the Special Ops community learns that one of their own is being tortured and will almost certainly be killed, no executive order will stop them from attempting a rescue mission.

A scintillating story of what happens when love degenerates into hate, or does it? This book does not follow any discernable pattern and is made more interesting by both of the lovers/protaganists giving their sides of the story..."Or do they ?" This tale will keep the listeners attention riveted to the end, or is it the end ! A star listening experience.
