In the last book the pedophile Broadcheck decapitated the wife of MP Timothy Bryant. He decided to take justice into his own hands and shoot Broadcheck while he was in custody. Later he escaped custody and became one of the deserters that live in the shadows of Saigon. Only Bryant has decided not the just sit on his hands. He starts a one man war against those he feels are Communist sympathizers. A pro-Hanoi politician, radio personalities, activists against the current regime and journalists are all his targets. Meanwhile Sgt. Stryker is framed for the murder of a former girlfriend. Now his buddies must prove his innocence and stop the campaign of the rogue MP before their former friend and colleague is himself taken out.
Back in 1988 Roger Corman’s Concorde pictures gained the film rights to the series. This is the book that they chose to adopt to a movie. I can see why since it has a lot of elements for an action film. Car chases, fire fights and a murder mystery. I vaguely remember renting it twenty years back and believe I enjoyed it but I am fuzzy on the details. I hope they someday release it on DVD. It does sound like an interesting film.
So here is the trailer.
