To his family, friends, neighbors and patients Dr. Conrad Wittmond was a quiet, affable pillar of the community. To the CIA he was a deadly contract agent who drew some of the toughest assignments. He began his secret career in 1963 while waiting for grad school to start. Instead of school he went to an abbreviated boot camp for basic training and then was sent to Vietnam. The reason he was recruited was his long range rifle proficiency. He and other recruits were about to become sniper/assassins.
The story is intense and full of action; the action is sensible and believable.
The lack of thorough editing drags the rating down from a five to a four. There are a lot of missing words and too many extra words. Sentence structure is good as is character development.
This story is heartily recommended if you don't resent repetitive ambushes and mass murder.
This print book was given to me by a relative, no review was requested.
