Major Edd "Twodees" Partain, recently thrown out of the Army and working as a small-time gun salesman, finds himself dealing with some deadly former colleagues when he is hired to track money stolen from a Democratic fundraiser

Blackwell North Amer
Cashiered U.S. Army major Edd "Twodees" Partain is working as a clerk in Wanda Lou's Weaponry in Sheridan, Wyoming. That is, he works there until the tall man in the lamb's wool topcoat walks into the shop and announces that a certain secret operation that took place in El Salvador is about to hit the media fan.
For Partain, the visit from the man in gray leads to an unforeseen career move. Flying to L.A., the ex-major is grilled by a woman hiding out - in a $2000-a-day hospital room - from the "Little Rock folks." Millicent Altford is a rainmaker, and a good one, adept at shaking the money tree for deserving politicos. Her secret war chest is missing $1.2 million, and she wants Partain to ride shotgun while she gets it back. And that leads Partain across the continent to Washington, where the blunders of U.S. covert action in Central America are at last percolating up through the political ranks.
A storefront organization called VOMIT - Victims of Military Intelligence Treachery - is trying to defend a network of former intelligence operatives, soldiers, and covert warriors, including Partain himself, from a plot to keep the truth buried. VOMlT has its hands full. Because Twodees Partain is making even more enemies than he used to, a number of bags containing $1.2 million are floating around, and some old El Salvador hands are stirring up the ashes of political sin - with corpses sprawling from Georgetown to Beverly Hills...
