For one dedicated reporter, Vietnam was not politics, strategy, or parades…it was reality. The real war didn't happen in a Pentagon or Saigon briefing room. The real war happened in-country.
For the soldier in the field, Vietnam was the terror of walking point deep in the Jungle, it was a white knuckled helicopter flight into the heart of darkness. Vietnam was an enemy you never saw, a buddy’s life snuffed out in front of you.
That was the real story of Vietnam, the story that did not make the papers as often as a general's speech or a politician’s press conference. But one reporter is changing all of that. And his reports from then and there bring readers straight to a part of hell.

Mason Hawke just wants to be left alone. Born with a musician's hands, Hawke has spent the past decade using his lightning–quick fingers to deal death instead of tunes, moving from one town to the next hoping to mute the voices of the dead that continually ring in his ears. But while playing piano in a two–bit saloon in Nebraska, Hawke witnesses a couple of roughnecks gun down a friend of his, and a few seconds later, the killer falls, by Hawke's hand. To honor his dead friend, Hawke travels to her home in New Orleans, but trouble seems to follow Mason Hawke like a hungry dog, and within days, he has put a bullet into a gun–toting thief.
But what should have been a simple act of justice becomes the beginning of a hunt. The man who Hawke shot was part of a business, part of a group, and that group is now determined to take revenge on Mason Hawke.
