GOD'S CHILDREN by Harold Coyle
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 1, 2000

"A grunt's life that, despite too many lectures on military mores, and a distracting romantic subplot, succeeds as an engrossing, uncompromisingly suspenseful tale of heroic adventure. ($150,000 ad/promo; radio satellite tour)"
Another penetrating dissection of the passion and terror of warfare from the modern master of life-under-combat, this time on a snowbound Slovakia, where a mixed bag of US Army infantry, acting as NATO peacekeepers, cope with murderous "ethnic cleansers"—and a far more threatening conflict between commanding officers.
