First Blood by David Morrell
One war waged against one man: RAMBO
First came the man: a young wanderer in a fatigue coat and long hair. Then came the legend, as John Rambo sprang from the pages of FIRST BLOOD to take his place on the world's cultural landscape.
This remarkable novel pits a young, disillusioned and ragged Vietnam veteran against a small-town cop who has no idea whom he is dealing with - or how far Rambo will take him into a life-and-death struggle through the woods, hills and caves of rural Kentucky.
From best-selling author David Morrell, this is the critically acclaimed thriller that launched the cultural phenomenon, Rambo. If you know Rambo only from the films, be prepared to be amazed.
