The Price of Honor by David Hackworth

With a golden name and a platinum future, U.S. Army Special Forces Captain Sandy Caine was born to be a soldier. The latest in an eight-generation West Point line of Caine men to serve duty, honor, country, Sandys character has been hammered out on an almost flawless anvil of military tradition. But a ghost from the past -- the mystery behind his dead fathers cowardice in Vietnam -- obsesses him, poisoning his faith in the Army and himself. Alex Caine dishonored the long gray line years ago in Vietnam, and Sandy carries around the disgrace in his blood every time he salutes a senior officer with a Vietnam Service Medal pinned to his chest. Now, pulling tours of duty in one global hot spot after another, it occurs to Sandy that he knows a dozen ways to kill a man for every way he knows of being one.<P>The brooding warrior intrigues Abigail Mancini, an ambitious, talented reporter for the Washington Chronicle. While sharing a burning rooftop with Sandy and his A-team, Abbie files a mesmerizing, you-are-there account of a dubious suicide mission ordered by the commander in chief. With instant Beltway credibility suddenly attached to her byline, shes drawn further into Sandys violent universe when both end up living dangerously in Bosnia. The more time they spend together, the more Sandys obsession becomes Abbies.<P>Its not long before Sandys relentless questioning coupled with Abbies skills as an investigative journalist threaten those keeping the Caine
