An army Lieutenant resigns her commission to become a professional poker player, believing poker is safer than army combat, so she thought, until winning a huge amount from a psycho who seeks a deadly payback.
Synopsis/Details: 

Likened to: “GI JANE” meets “ROUNDERS.”

This story salutes the Native American Indians and all females who, had, are, and will serve in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The story is set in a very near future war in some desert country. The story follows Shawna Chenoa (her tribal name is Fire Dancer) through her trials and tribulations in war, peace, and crime. In the US Army, she is a Lieutenant in charge of a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical testing and compliance unit. Her unit falls into combat where they are forced to become fighting soldiers very quickly. Her platoon happens upon and rescues several American POWs and shortly later a Russian POW. That Russian later gives the story a twisting ending.

Lieutenant Chenoa witnessed many deaths in her platoon. She and many survivors suffered bloody combat wounds to include PTSD. She resigns her commission, returns home, gets married, and pursues a career as a professional poker player. She believes poker is a safer vocation than fighting a war; until she wins a large poker pot from a psycho.

The psycho seeks bloody revenge, costing the lives of Shawna's friend then her husband’s life. Shawna must somehow send that psycho to hell, to save the lives of her remaining friends to include that of her own.
