Phil Black left the cruel Pacific battlefields looking to find some chill-time after the war. Then came a knock and a beautiful girl with a lost husband to find. Things get a lot more complicated after that.
He calls on an old Marine buddy, Gunny LaForge, to follow a violent path from San Francisco’s foggy streets to the steaming jungles of Peron’s Argentina. Always ready with a quick wisecrack, fast action and straight-shooting are their only guarantees of survival in a noir thriller involving Manchu treasure and a Nazi mass murderer who will not accept defeat.
