What should a Navy SEAL do when faced with evidence that representatives of the U.S. Government are secretly buying old Soviet tactical nuclear weapoons for purposes other than disarmament? In this thriller, Andy Carlson responds by throwing a monkey wrench into the deal and by resigning from the Navy. Hoping to settle down on his family's Virginia farm and resume his career as an emergency physician, Andy instead finds himself and those he loves the targets of his own governement and a Russian arms dealer. Although a capable warrior and field surgeon, Andy is disallusioned with his country and unprepared for the female operative sent to ensnare him. He's a binge drinker, never comfortable around women when he's sober and scarred by personal losses. Andy's antebellum plantation is a major player in the action, with its network of limestone caves, family treasures, historical surprises, and natural defenses. Andy enlists three unlikely allies in his defense--a pregnant CIA agent, a male descendant of a former slave on the Carlson plantation who shares a common ancestor with Andy, and a teenage Saudi girl. Some of the secrets of the plantation have never been discused in polite company. Some have heretofore been unspeakable. There were good reasons why the Indians, the British, and the Yankees had lost on this same ground in previous battles. But the Carlsons knew who their enemies were in those fights. And tactical nuclear weapons had never been in Farmville before.
