A mother's last dying wish propels her only son headlong into an unexpected adventure in The Last Jump.
Fact and fiction intermix seamlessly as he endeavors to unravel a secret passionately guarded by four old soldiers who swore an oath never to reveal it. The Last Jump is a war story, a mystery, a love tale and a narrative of valor and honor about the gritty men and women who won World War II.
The reader is transported back to a time when Americans stood shoulder to shoulder in defense of their nation. It was an imperfect America with incredible virtues and vexing shortcomings that made the country struggle with racial and gender issues while fighting for its very survival.
As the hero of The Last Jump reaches out to these aging veterans to solve the puzzle, he uncovers truths he could never have imagined -- including the shocking conclusion.
