Publisher's Summary

Ripped from today's headlines, Brian Haig's new novel finds Army lawyer Sean Drummond caught between duty to Washington's elite and the soldiers in Iraq. Dispatched to investigate the suicide of one of D.C.'s most influential defense officials, an ardent, early supporter of the war in Iraq, Drummond and his female partner find themselves in the middle of a tug-of-war between Washington's most influential power brokers and his own personal allegiance to the soldiers dying overseas. What he uncovers are the secrets that led to the war, secrets that, once exposed, would destroy public support and undermine the presidency. Now Drummond faces the greatest moral quandary of his life: what is the true meaning of patriotism?

Critic Reviews

"A marvelously twisted plot and marvelously twisted characters help along a tale in which Drummond actually gets to act a little human. Great entertainment; highly recommended." ( Library Journal)

Not the same...

Brian Haig has created a rich and compelling character named Sean Drummond but this time Sean didn't seem the same. It went off track for me when I heard the reader's voice -- too old for Sean. His female characters had deeper voices than the males. Please, bring back the old Sean and one of the other readers -- Scott Brick or John Rubenstein. Don't miss other Haig books. They really are fantastic.

character/reader mismatch

I really struggled through this book because of the narrator -- his voice just didn't jibe with the character of Sean Drummond. I agree with the first reviewer -- please bring back Scott Brick or John Rubenstein. I only rated the book three stars, though it may have deserved more, because I just couldn't get by the narrator's voice.
