    "The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." is quite possibly the best opening line from a book. Ever.

    I completely agree.

    Hurusu from "Amok" by George Fox.

    Hurusu is a Japanese soldier left behind in the Philippines when the Japanese pulled out just before the end of WWII.

    The Japanese left him behind to delay the Allied troops so they could escape. His last order was to kill as many as possible. The story takes place over many decades as he hides in the jungles of Philippines to survive and carries out his last order. With no human contact, he has no idea the war has ended.

    WOW!!! I am getting this book and reading it. Sounds really good!! Thanks!!
