'You're going up the Valley'

There were many valleys in the mountains of Afghanistan, and most were hard places where people died hard deaths. But there was only one Valley.

Lieutenant Black doesn't even know its proper name, but he knows it is the farthest, and the hardest, and the worst. That he has been sent there to investigate a warning shot fired by a near-forgotten platoon, he can only see as the final bureaucratic insult in a short and unhappy Army career.

But as he starts to unearth the dark secrets of the strung-out platoon besieged within Combat Outpost Vega, Black is drawn into an obsessive odyssey of discovery that will threaten the lives of everyone in the Valley.

THE VALLEY is a tour de force, a first novel that allows a glimpse into the minds of the men who fight our wars, reminiscent of Apocalypse Now, The Yellow Birds, and Matterhorn.
