Description

Duff Coleridge, a Tennessee boy from head to toe, would choose his misty hometown of Melody Hill over heaven any day-and yet it was these beautiful mountains that claimed the life of his father. Knowing his only chance for a better life-something he desperately needs if he's going to support his sister and foster brother-is to serve in Vietnam, Duff joins the military as a paratrooper. Quickly proving to be a natural warrior, Duff rapidly accelerates through the ranks until he's recruited into the shadowy world of black ops under a CIA boss who seems more rogue than company man. But when a mysterious French-Vietnamese woman approaches Duff, he becomes trapped in a dangerous web of love, lies, and loyalty. Should he trust his dubious leader's assessment of this woman, or should he trust his own instincts? Knowing that either decision might lead him straight into a deadly trap, Duff races to determine the truth before it's too late. Expertly crafted with historical accuracy and the author's real-life military experiences, you don't want to miss this thrilling prequel to Rick DeStefanis's award-winning novel, The Gomorrah Principle.show more

About Rick Destefanis

Writer, photographer, and avid outdoorsman Rick DeStefanis lives in northern Mississippi with his wife of forty years, Janet. While his nonfiction writing, such as The Philosophy of Big Buck Hunting, focuses on his outdoor excursions, it is his military expertise that informs his novels. His latest work, Melody Hill, the prequel to his award-winning novel The Gomorrah Principle, draws from his experiences as a paratrooper and infantry light weapons specialist serving from 1970 to 1972 with the 82nd Airborne Division.
