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?

What the Critics Say

"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)

Where is Scott Brick?

I realize several other readers have made the same comment, but I did want to stress how incredibly distracting it was to change readers in this series. I nearly quit listening several times, until the book itself became so interesting that I could stop being distracted by the "wrong" voice. The narrator was adequate, but in my brain, I hear Scott Brick as Sean Drummond. PLEASE, Brian Haig, insist on Scott in the future! The book was very good, and I learned a great deal about the Middle East, but I nearly gave up in the early going. I'm not sure the narrator always understood Sean's sense of irony or humor. He quite literally trampeled on the jokes, and the humor was badly needed to offset the grimness of the subject matter.

I am not certain why the current narrator breathes so loudy, but either the producers made an error in muting a natural breathing technique, or the narrator himself needs to quell his inhilations.

As for the story itself, it was top-rate. It's not often I read a thriller and come away thinking that I need to do historical research on the subject matter. Well done, Brian Haig.

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.
