In master storyteller Andrew Kaplan's action-packed thriller, the CIA sends its top agent to Southeast Asia to stop a war that threatens to be even bloodier than the conflict in Vietnam.
The photograph in the CIA vault shows four men relaxing in the jungle, green berets draped over their rifles, enjoying a break from combat. On the day after the picture was taken, their friendship was torn apart forever. Now, 10 years after the United States pulled out of Vietnam, the CIA has sent one of the men, Parker, to Thailand to track a troop's movement across the Cambodian border, which is about to explode, luring the Americans back into another disastrous ground war.
When Parker disappears the CIA deploys its best agent--Parker's former friend, Sawyer--in a secret operation, code named Dragonfire, to rescue Parker and prevent the war. But in the forbidden jungles of the Golden Triangle, a mysterious Asian beauty will lead Sawyer into a strange and savage world of opium traders, warlords, and militant factions, where nothing is as it seems and the only certainty is death.
