While the Phoenix Program became notorious as a CIA-orchestrated assassination program, its official objective was to improve the collection of intelligence. Captain Jake Gulliver is no stranger to clandestine operations, having earned the nickname "Sandman" for his ruthless abilities as an assassin.The novel's central episode is a case of mistaken identity, in which an innocent Vietnamese is tortured to death. The fact that the Phoenix operatives committed a horrendous mistake comes to light, and the local Hoa-Hoa religious sect organizes protest demonstrations. Not wanting to send in South Vietnamese troops to quell the uprising, since that would embarrass the Saigon government as well as the Phoenix Program, the CIA officer in charge decides to comply with the protesters' demands and arrange for the "accidental" deaths of the three interrogators, one of whom is an American.
