The first novel in the classic, hard-to-find, 1980s vigilante series…now back in print for the first time in decades.
Kyle Youngblood was a Green Beret in Vietnam…where he became a relentless killing machine, fighting for God and country, while longing for the humanity he left behind. They called him Dr. Death. But when he returned home to his ranch in Nevada, to his loving wife and kids, he discovered that he couldn’t escape the violence. It followed him like a shadow…and when Youngblood is forced to kill a man in self-defense, the son of a big-time mobster, the retribution is swift and brutal. But the mob’s professional assassins who come for Youngblood don’t realize he isn’t just some “hick rancher.” He’s a man who won’t be intimidated, who won’t run from a fight…and who won’t die easily. He’s declaring war on a new enemy, using the same lethal skills that he mastered in the steaming jungles of ‘Nam.
