About the Book

In the final days of the Watergate scandal, it was hard to determine who was in charge of the government. Power brokers, sensing a dying presidency, cared little about the office and worked to cut themselves the best deal in Washington. For all the right reasons, the President undertakes a wartime mission in opposition to his critics and his own policies. Amid the infighting, LtCol C.P. Doggett, USMC, is assigned to carry out the President's plans. He is thrust between agencies seeing him as an impediment. As such, Doggett's life becomes a commodity, and he has to survive by outwitting those who want him out of the way.
