Chapter 1 recounts the evening of March 20, 1957, in which Master Sergeant Robert G. Reynolds shot and killed a Chinese man just outside of the Reynolds' home on Grass Mountain in Taiwan. It presents background information on Reynolds, then details what happened from his perspective: The Chinese man was walking around the Reynolds' house late at night and peeked in at Reynolds's wife, Clara, while she was showering. Reynolds loaded his revolver and went outside to try to talk to the man and figure out the situation. The Chinese man appeared to have a weapon in his left hand, which he proceeded to raise against Reynolds. Reynolds then shot the man twice in self-defense before calling for the authorities immediately after.
