On the thirtieth anniversary of the fall of Saigon, five Vietnam veterans gather for a reunion. While reminiscing about the dangerous final days of the nation's longest and most costly war, the five agree on one point. Once again, the nation has plunged into an unwarranted conflict in the Middle East-and for the same greedy reasons. Now, the veterans just need to figure out a way to stop it. Still bitter over the needless human casualties and loss of wealth in Southeast Asia, the five former covert operatives rename themselves the "phantom patriots" and begin formulating a strategy to eradicate government corruption and punish the wealthy oil executives responsible for causing it. As they embark on a quiet revolution to prevent the nation from certain demise, the five decide their enemies are political terrorists whose primary weapon is fear. The phantom patriots have but one goal-to take down the prominent corruptors and send a message to others that their days of unrestrained wealth and control are numbered. But the phantom patriots are about to discover that more than one powerful person wants them dead. In this contemporary thriller, only time will tell whether good intentions will triumph over evil plans.
