For the members of SEAL Team Six, it was a rare mission ordered by the president, monitored in real time from the Situation Room. Houthi rebels in Yemen had captured an American journalist and a member of the Saudi royal family. Their executions were scheduled for Easter Sunday. The SEAL team were to break them out. But when the mission results in spectacular failure, the finger-pointing goes all the way to the top.
Did the president play political games with the lives of US service members?
Paige Chambers, a determined young lawyer, has a very personal reason for wanting to know the answer. The case she files will polarize the nation and test the resiliency of the Constitution. The stakes are huge, the alliances shaky, and she will be left to wonder if the saying on the Supreme Court building still holds true.
Equal justice under law
It makes a nice motto. But will it work when the defendant is also one of the most powerful people on the planet?

Outstanding legal and military thriller!
This is my first novel by Randy Singer, but I plan to listen to others. I've heard the complaint from other readers that Singer tends to make his religion the centerpiece of his novels. That definitely is not the case with Rule of Law. (I've listened to and reviewed books by atheist Sam Harris that were far stronger in their religious preaching than Rule of Law.) This novel does seem to take a strong partisan political position that is the opposite of my political views, but that does not detract from the great suspense mystery plot.
The protagonist of Rule of Law is attorney Paige Chambers who lost her boyfriend who she expected to marry in a failed Seal Team Six (DEVGRU) operation in Yemen that sought to free two high value hostages. Someone high in the US government had warned the people who held the hostages of the raid and when it would occur; the result was the loss of lives of several members of Seal Team Six. The story is about the legal battle to uncover the name of the traitor.

Love his books!
If it is Randy Singer, it WILL be good. We love all of his books. I must admit, I got a little lost in the politics of this one, but not enough to take off a star. My husband totally enjoyed it. It also comes with a hankie alert!!
