When his recon platoon lands on a Mogadishu beach under the glare of hundreds of news cameras, Lieutenant Gavin Kelly knows that his mission of mercy—Operation Restore Hope—is going to be anything but by the book. His doubts prove true after one of his men kills an armed Somali who may have been a newsperson’s bodyguard, touching off an international incident that has the press corps howling, his Marine superiors evading, and his men losing faith in their cause, their honor, and their lieutenant. Through a morass of death, decay, and political lies, the slowly disintegrating platoon descends into the lawless, violent underbelly of Somalia—where Kelly must finally confront his values, his loyalties, and his own soul in a land where murder is a way of life.

With heart-pounding action, intricate military detail, and rapier wit, Owen West has written a gritty, modern war novel that speaks to the violence lurking within us all—and the lengths to which we will go to control it.

    " I know it's fiction, and it is a genre I enjoy, this book has a realism not found in the more popular books of it's type. Not as well polished as some books I've read, yet the realism more than makes up for it. Great book, great story, great character development. "
