One courageous squad tackles three deadly missions in the Pacific Theater at the height of World War II.

Lieutenant Tarkington is the leader of Tark's Ticks, a squad of soldiers who take on the most dangerous tasks in the Pacific Theater. After losing a close friend in combat, Tarkington struggles to keep his team on the right track-and when they're assigned three lethal missions, each team member will be pushed to his limits.

Mission One sends the squad to perform reconnaissance on a Japanese airfield, where a last-minute order from headquarters will throw them into direct contact with the enemy.

Mission Two introduces a new Japanese-American team member determined to prove he belongs, with tensions rising in a squad divided by his arrival. But when the team is tasked with taking out a Japanese general on a remote island, they must set aside their differences to complete the operation, where a lack of trust can have fatal consequences.

Mission Three raises the stakes even higher when the team learns the location of a group of prisoners, including people close to Tarkington's second-in-command. Controversial orders from headquarters collide with the squad's sense of justice when they arrive at the scene-and with so many lives on the line, making the right decision comes at a steep price.

Filled with gritty combat scenes, well-researched historical details, and pulse-pounding action, this historical thriller is a must-read for fans of P.T. Deutermann, W.E.B. Griffin, and Tom Clancy.
