Everyone has to come from somewhere.

This is the story of Frank Cassidy, and starts with his youth in a backwards Texan town called Promise Falls. He comes from inauspicious beginnings, the only child of a ruthless, philandering Baptist minister and his beautiful, unassuming wife.

At a very early age Frank realises that beneath his unassuming little down’s somewhat rundown surface lay dark, twisted secrets, some of which he can never reveal to anyone. Before too long he discovers secrets of his own, and realises he will be a part of this world forever, always standing on the outside looking in.

As soon as he receives his draft notice he heads overseas to Vietnam, but instead of being turned off war forever, he revels in the military actions and becomes a sniper. He stays for as long as he is able, and on his return he goes to West Point to become an officer.

He revels in the world of darkness that lies not just beneath the surface of his home town, but the thin veneer of all civilisation.

Frank rises quickly through the ranks, undertaking increasingly dangerous missions, until finally he is sent to Colombia to assassinate a drug lord. For someone of his experience, it should be a routine mission.

But for Frank Cassidy, this mission will be a major turning point in his life, a chance for him to turn his back on the darkness and embrace a new life, or delve deeper into the web of lies and secrets and finally take control of it. Which path will he choose?

All he ever wanted was to be a good soldier.
