Sergeant Major Lance Harris is a battle hardened soldier of the Mobile Terrain Forces and the Elite Shimmering Death units. He's been fighting the enemies of mankind for almost a century and there's little he has not seen or done among the stars, and he has the scars to show for it. His latest mission has a high probability of failure with an untested xenophobic unit of wet-behind-the-ears recruits and one alien fighting for his species' very freedom.
Two buddies go on vacation for some much-needed R&R. Even those from the tip-of-the-spear Special Operations community of America's elite Tier One units have to go on vacation to destress and decompress like the rest of working stiffs. Not all vacations go according to plan, unfortunately, and this one went from sun, fun, and pretty girls to FUBAR quickly. One man is missing; the other is on the run from unknown assassins. What went wrong?
