Copyright:  2001

A small group of Korean War veterans served as a contingent of assassins that worked closely with the White House without recognition.


Through uncontrolled circumstances, Jake Green, a US Navy Seaman, was caught up in a battle front advance in the Korean War. He had never experienced training for battle field duties, but the Marines had assigned him duties as a radioman and gunfire spotter with a forward echelon led by Captain John (Silvertip)Silvers. During an attack against North korean forces, the Marines out distanced their supporting services and were surrounded by the North Koreans. The surrounded force was ordered to hold their position. The unit held out for five days with heavy battle situations. The battalion suffered major losses and the few remaining soldiers were captured. After more than a month behind enemy lines surrounded by enemies, in a blizzard, and with little food, and melted snow for water, the escapees broke through friendly front lines.

Upon returning to his ship, Green was told that the situation that he had experienced never happened. He was then ordered back to the United States for special traing and Detachment X-Ray was formed. this secret organization operated out of the South Atlantic with the chain of command reaching back to the White House, Detachment X-Ray was very successful in search and destroy missions. After a number of years they were ordered back to the States. Instead of disbanding Detachment X-Ray was reorganized and based in the United States.      


Detachment X-Ray is the first book by Jess Parker. It took four years to write and then 184 rejections, ones that answered, was suffered by the new author.
