Army Warrant Officer Jim Nix is an outcast with just one chance to avoid a sentence in Leavenworth: lead a platoon into the notorious Song Ba valley for just one night. A simple operation, Nix thinks.

But nothing can prepare him for what awaits his men and him--something much deadlier than mere flesh-and-blood enemies--an incredibly powerful entity determined to kill every living thing in its path...

This excerpt finds Sergeant Eckert aboard a Caribou cargo plane amid a motley crew of passengers—mostly civilians—when a strange assault on the plane sets the tone for a supernatural horror story set in an environment that is menacing and terrible enough with the omnipresent threat of attack by the merely human Viet Cong. By the end of this first encounter, we sense that certain members of the U.S. military may know more about this evil assailant than they are letting on.
