SummaryAdd a Summary
The book has a much more compelling life changing event for Rapp than the beach scene, From near the start of Chapter 1:

He was to be trained, honed and forged into an ultimate precision weapon, and then he would begin to hunt them down. Every last one of the faceless men who had conspired to kill all those innocent civilians on that cold December night.
