ST. JAMES, N.Y. – The depiction of life after the war for two men, once soul mates, who lived diabolically different lives has prompted Ron Scott to write “Twelve Fifteen,” (published by Xlibris) a suspense story about a skilled murderer as he travels cross country on a mission of revenge at all cost.

This book revolves around the character of James Curtis, an exiled soldier of the Vietnam War who returns to the United States on a mission of revenge for the miscarriage of justice he suffered during the war. To accomplish his mission, James recruits Brett Edwards, a former soldier whom he considers his most trusted friend. Brett finds himself both victim to an old friendship and a tool of the FBI. And now, they are both the subject of pursuit by two senior FBI agents, Ted White and Jason Buchanan. But who is his target?

Contributing editors have agreed: This book will appeal to readers because the suspense begins on page one and continues up to the end.

Readers are invited to join in the chase in “Twelve Fifteen,” an adult suspense novel not suitable for children. It is a compelling read that vividly reflects the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder for those who have gone through the war and return home to their families.
