This story is based on actual events in the CBI, China, Burma, India, theater of war, especially a part of northeast India. Tibet, also, is part of the story, as it was in Tibet that seven tons of U.S. currency was dropped; money meant for the newly formed Free China Air Force, which included part of what had been the, Flying Tigers. Now, two mercenaries have put together a crew, and theyre bringing the fortune out. Through a grave mistiming, theyre trapped on the Brahma Putra river, a river that is born twelve thousand feet up in the Himalayan Mountains. It is a raging thing, and they can see no way to let go of it. Its a raft ride like none ever seen, but a mans gotta do what a mans gotta do, and by some miracle, some of them survive.
But theres a traitor in the crew, and others waiting. Worse yet, the C.I.A., the KGB, and Naval Intelligence are after them, not for the money, oh, no. Its for something vastly more important; a few pieces of paper filled with equations that will forever change the world, or destroy it!
