|Plot Summary of The Mercenary|
|"The main character is a mercenary, and so he fights. Theres no clear right or wrong side, and nobody is really fighting for anything in particular, so you find yourself not even caring who wins or looses. The female lead is named "Glenda Ruth Horton", so i feel sorry for her. I think the book was written more to make a political statement about internationalism then an interesting story, frankly. "
