Action-packed from start to finish, this unabashedly patriotic tale has the makings for a made-for-TV movie.
Lt. Commander “Gunner” McCormick hears rumors of a North Korean prison camp holding elderly American prisoners of war from the Korean War 60-some years prior. The possibility of finding and rescuing the POWs strikes a chord with him because his grandfather disappeared during the war and is officially listed as missing in action. When the opportunity arises, Gunner and his hastily formed commando group advance into North Korea to search out the camp and rescue the prisoners.
You may recognize performer Dick Hill from the Jack Reacher audiobooks. If you like his narration in that series, you will almost certainly enjoy this performance.
This work is labeled faith-based fiction, and that theme is prominent throughout.
