In August 1993, Task Force Ranger lands in Mogadishu, Somalia. Their mission is to capture warlord Mohamed Aydiid. Tom Daniels and his partner, Cat Randall, both members of First Special Forces Operational Detachment?Delta, spot Aydiid but are not allowed to assassinate him. The next day, during a horrific close quarter battle, Cat is killed and Task Force Ranger is disbanded. Tom is emotionally shattered after years of living on the brink of death, and the loss of his closest friend. He leaves Delta but secretly vows to finish what was started. A year later he receives a letter from Jon Croft, a former army buddy living in Panamá. Tom?s fiancée, Marta, allegedly killed during the invasion of Panamá, may still be alive. Tom and Jon travel deep into the jungles of South America to find out who is hiding Marta and why. Tom unwittingly follows a trail back to Africa and then the U.S. A dying man?s confession eventually leads him to a cloud forest in the mountains of Colombia where he comes face-to-face with his enemy, and the complete truth. What he uncovers is more than he wants to know.
