Abstract:

"As a boy, Ben Tails hunted elk and other big game animals in the mountains of western Monatana and then humans in Vietnam. He was a young marine sniper with the nom de guerre of Mr. Slide, operating alone as a silent as a deadly cobra in the jungles of Indochins. Through the telescopic sight of his precision-tuned rifle, he squeezed the trigger and watched scornes of men die, some running terrified, some unwittingly finishing their last lunch. He was seduced by the freedom and power that war gave him, and he became addicted to the hunt itself, staying on after his tour of duty to become a hired gun for the most shadowy arm of United states intelligence, which was fighting its own war with its own clandestine army. As the barbarism of the post-Vietnam war era escalated out of control, Ben's consience finally could stand no more and he returned home to Montana. Working as a deputy sheriff there, he found a kind of peace and a good woman...a lover, and friend, and a soul mate, who then unexpectedly died. Without her, it was over in Montana for Ben, and he returned to Asia posing as a businessman on the payroll of a multinational organization which is partly (and secretly) decdicated to fighting terrorism and the typs of international crimes that often have their roots in the wars he'd tried to leave behind." -- inside cover.
