“Air Force navigator Michael Parson is transporting a prisoner, a Taliban mullah, out of Afghanistan when his plane is shot down. On foot in a bitter, blinding snowstorm, Parson, the mullah, and the mullah's female interpreter, Army Sergeant Gold, must evade the enemy long enough for a rescue team to airlift them to safety. This is a story that draws you into the pulsing heart of the war in Afghanistan, a story of courage and gripping adventure, and a moving and timely glimpse into a soldier's mind.”

"A magnificent novel. Courage and honor in the face of the enemy have not been so brilliantly portrayed since the great novels of World War II."
