From back of book: Wounded Special Forces veteran Jim Chapel has been stuck behind a desk rather than out in the field. But now medical technology has finally caught up with Chapel's ambitions, and coupled with his unstoppable determination he'll get back to where he thrives: the thick of the action.
Drafted into a new war, this time in our homeland, he is tasked with hunting a group of escapees form a tap secret miliary compound, all extremely deadly, genetically modified killers, and unraveling the mystery behind their existence. Aided by a mysterious woman named Angel and a courageous, beautiful veterinarian, Chapel begins a cross-country hunt to stop the murders. But are the killers really rogues, or are they part of a sinister conspiracy that reaches the highest levels.
