LAST PHOENIX chronicles the transition of an American boy next door into a soulless predator in the veritable and emotional jungle of irregular warfare, betrayal, madness, and revenge. It is the story of Karl Isaacson, a heart-of-America boy who believed in the rightness of his country. In the end, like his great country, he was betrayed and humiliated—and he got even. This is an all-too-true fictional account of one agent in the CIA's Phoenix Program against the civilians of South Viet Nam during the War in Viet Nam—the irregular, hidden, dirty little war. He learned that Phoenix lived on after the war, and then, he became the LAST PHOENIX.
