March 1966, Dalat, South Vietnam.
Green Beret First Lieutenant Harrison Bennett stalks his latest target, an elusive Viet Cong Colonel. After weeks of hunting, the man’s face fills the rifle scope.
A deep breath, a partial exhale, a tap from the observer confirming the target.
The trigger squeeze and rifle recoil meld into the muscle memory of training, the pink mist replaces the man’s face, and it is done….
March 2016, Providence, Rhode Island.
Attorney-at-Law Harrison “Hawk” Bennett sits at his desk going over his morning schedule. His phone rings….
His world is about to change forever.
Walking into the reception area, his memories go into overdrive. His eyes see what his mind cannot accept.
A saffron-robed Buddhist monk stands and smiles. A face he last saw seconds before he ended its life stares back at him. A specter from his nightmare lives.
“It has been a long time, Lieutenant Bennett, and a long way from our time in Dalat.”
“I thought you were dead, Colonel. They gave me a medal for killing you.”
Bennett finds himself thrust into a world of treason, double-cross, and a justice department bent on vengeance. Those he once fought alongside have become the enemy.
Forced to choose between his dedication to the law and the memories of the dead and dying in the jungles of Vietnam, Hawk faces his greatest challenge; defending a man he believed he killed from a government gone rabid over protecting its secrets.
A Change of Hate: A Harrison “Hawk” Bennett Novel. The latest work by Joe Broadmeadow coming soon to Kindle and print on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
