Coconut Republic by Thomas J. Wolfenden
The year is 1987. The Cold War is rapidly winding down, and Dan Kruger, ex-CIA field officer, Vietnam veteran, and Green Beret is now out of a job--but not for long.

Kruger is hired by a South African mining company to lead a dignitary protection detail on the tiny island-nation of Korotonga. His new job is seemingly mundane at first in this tropical, South Pacific Island that time has forgotten, but things soon take a turn for the worse as Kruger discovers the nation's leader has a dark and nasty secret--a secret the president must keep at all costs.

Betrayed by one whom he trusted with his life, he turns to a former sworn enemy turned unlikely ally. Now, with a misfit band of forgotten soldiers, Dan will try to right the wrongs of his checkered past, quiet the ghosts that haunt him at night; and fulfill his old oath from the Special Forces--to finally free the oppressed.
