In 1962 a USMC Force Recon team, after destroying a V.C. ammo dump, on the Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam border, has a surreal encounter with a Blue Heron. A bird not normally found in SE Asia. Many years later members of that six-man team begin to die in odd circumstances, but deemed accidents. But are they accidents? A 2-inch piece of origami in the shape of a Blue Heron is found inconspicuously at the scene of each death scene. Why? Who placed them? Ryan O'Toole and Joey Hotsko are motivated to find out... and soon--they were on that Force Recon team.
