Filmmaker Jane Chadwick has received threats because she is making a movie on the relationship between two homosexual World War II heroes. Jack Shelton and Hal Lord fought courageously, won honors, met, fell in love, but the latter could not come out into the sunshine, ending their relationship. As Cosmos and Jane fall in love, he and his teammates must stop a killer probably protected by a neo-Nazi group demanding the movie not be shot because Hal is a legend. Cosmos knows his beloved must also accept his mother and the danger of his occupation if they are to become permanent love buddies.

Too many key players are in the cast to follow easily, but the novel that focuses on Cosmos and Jane.
