Jackson Monroe is the finest American sniper in Vietnam's treacherous Mekong Delta. The Viet Cong call him "Black Ghost." Dispatched for a classified "illegal" mission on the Cambodia border, Monroe succeeds beyond expectation, only to be abandoned behind enemy lines and left for dead by his superior officers. Suddenly, the hunter becomes the hunted when Monroe discovers that a VC assassin-an expert marksman like himself-is intent on eliminating the legendary Black Ghost before he compromises the North Vietnamese Army's carefully planned Tet Offensive. With superb writing, brilliantly realized characters, and nonstop action, The Silent Men introduces readers to a new hero in the first of a series of thrilling adventures.
