About the Book

Having witnessed a number of unlawful deeds for which, either because of political constraints or shear ineptitude, proper justice is denied, "The Colonel" engages in his own methods of retribution. Over time and with a much wider sympathy with his motives than he might have presupposed, he is instrumental in establishing a covert organization that increasingly permeates society at large. That is, until a certain turn of events leads to his own arrest and imprisonment.

The events that prompt this highly decorated and very courageous military officer to take the law into his own hands provide a fascinating view of contemporary life.
