"Warrior" begins in 1973 with a .50 caliber machine gun round slamming overhead as Rick Putnam and Eve Buffalo Calf are walking in supplies to the American Indian Movement militants besieged in Wounded Knee. In a matter of hours, they find themselves on the run from distrustful AIM members, US Marshalls and the FBI, and a mysterious group that appears to be attacking both sides. Rick accepts a sacred mission from a militant who saved his life back in Vietnam and that leads him into battle against a cult determined to destroy the reservation where Eve grew up. As in "Courier," the first book in the "Freelancer" series, "Warrior" is set in the gritty, dangerous 1970's when ordinary Americans thought they were being paranoid when they feared faceless, nameless forces--forces that were very real and extremely dangerous. Rick, Eve, and his computer hacker housemates are forced to battle with an unholy mixture of corporate, government, and cult fanatics as they struggle to rescue their families and save themselves. If you lived through the 70's, it will bring back sharp and often painful memories, if you didn't, you'll get an entirely new perspective on the world of "groovy" clothes and "Have a Nice Day" smile buttons. "Warrior" is another non-stop, high-speed thrill ride from Terry Irving so don't start reading it if you've got that important meeting in the morning because you'll be up all night--desperate to see what's next.
