Action fiction, psychological fiction, military fiction, mystery
Attack from Within is a gripping tale of one soldier’s recovery from war-induced stress. It begins with Pete’s return from Vietnam. Upset by his general discharge and struggling to remember large parts of his last mission, Pete fights with his family and leaves East Tennessee.
While working in Detroit, the murder city, Pete is robbed. Hungry and homeless, he accepts help from a local drug dealer. Their friendship flourishes, but it involves Pete in a dangerous drug war, violent riots, and a painful interaction with corrupt police.
As the city’s violence triggers Pete, he has nightmares and flashbacks about Vietnam. Injured and overwhelmed, he teeters on the brink until his smart and sexy girlfriend finds him a unique therapist—a Jewish survivor of the German death camps. Helped by his therapist, friends, and war buddies, Pete faces and unravels the remaining mystery surrounding his last days in Vietnam. Freed from that horror, he finishes school, marries his girlfriend, and looks forward to their future.
Attack from Within features fast-paced action as it unravels a wartime mystery, but the insight it provides into the mind of a survivor is what makes this story gutsy and inspiring.
