About the Book

Marine Captain Toro is sent in on a routine mission to the country of Colombia to find and eliminate the leader of the Revolutionary Army (FARC), Sure Shot. Nothing, no even the hard and arduous training he received, could prepared him for what he was about to encounter. He is forced to search for the truth, which will lead him and the reader, to discover the real victims of this internal conflict. The book is part fiction and part reality but nevertheless, a drama, in the war torn country of Colombia.
