The President of the United States is fed up and has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea--to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult.

How will it all play out? No one knows, but it's sure to be hazardous duty"--Back cover.
