A Vietnam vet suffering post-traumatic stress disorder is having a nightmare in a run down hovel. He dreams of his buddies from Nam and dreams they die a horrible death. In the real world his buddies are being assassinated one by one. One of his buddies the enigmatic Monday the Eliminator shows up and thinks that La Veau know who is killing the old squad.
This new story is a great set up for the new plot line. All the major characters are introduced. Project Fire Mountain is already implemented and Scout looks like he’s getting drawn into it. Plus there’s a giant robot and giant robots are always cool. A great introduction to what will be an exciting new story.
The back up Monday the Eliminator is also excellent. Finally a back up story worthy of this book. Written by Truman it will eventually tie in with the main Scout storyline. This story introduces a mystery that I can’t wait to find out in the next book. Monday is also a real cool badass.
