July, 1971. American involvement in Vietnam winds
down. But other sinister events are surfacing in Asia that could lead to global
conflict. United States prepares for reversion of Okinawa back to Japan.
Strategic military bases are in jeopardy of being shut down after it becomes
public chemical weapons have been secretly stored for years on the island along
with nuclear weapons. “Operation Red-Hat” is initiated so they can be removed
before reversion. There are covered-up fatalities when nerve agents leak. To
complicate things, a renegade American colonel assigned to the project steals a
nuclear suitcase bomb along with thirteen pounds of plutonium. Fleeing across
Southeast Asia with CIA, Soviet GRU, and special “Black-Code” operatives in hot
pursuit, he plans selling them to a powerful Burmese drug warlord. Teeming with firefights, drug-smuggling,
love, murder, a clashing of cultures, and steamy sex coupled with off-beat
humor, the gut-clutching action never ends creating an exotic atmosphere as
convincing as the plot is intriguing.
