Only two men could have made the shot - White or his friend Rick Burns, ex-military sniper now working as a Mafia hitman. Testimony unravels the intricate web created by Rivera and Daniel Waterman, head of an international cartel dabbling in both Latin American Politics and cocaine. A while back, White and Burns led a commando assault into the Colombian jungle to destroy Waterman's main cocaine processing factory. After a vicious battle against counter-attacking mercenaries the entire strike team was slaughtered...all except for White and Burns. Burns returned home with a bitter obsession: revenge. But Waterman discovered his plan to assassinate Rivera and set out to stop it by blackmailing Frank White. Desperate, White turned to beautiful WHITNEY TODD, fearless Federal Agent. As they find themselves caught in the crossfire of the courtroom persecution they realize they must fulfill one last mission...to hunt for the truth that would destroy Waterman forever.
