Derek Malloy doesn't like one-size rules, and flying a short field C-7 in 1970 Vietnam is a good place not to. But when he breaks several and lands at an abandoned dirt strip to explore a mountain waterfall, his reasons change. Liet emerges and tells him a story that launches their kindred spirits on a harrowing quest born of a waning war. In the last stand of freelance military flying, in an aviation world the news or Washington never saw, Liet's honor and an ancient gold Buddha ultimately hang in a balance Derek understands...the one where rules lose and humanity wins.
