Publisher's Summary

"Listen, Drummond, your client betrayed this country in ways too horrible to contemplate..."
In the history of espionage, there's never been one like him. But Major Sean Drummond never says die. Especially when an old flame begs him to defend her brigadier general husband in the biggest treason case in US history. And even when Drummond is up against the fiercest prosecutor in the Army and fighting two murder charges. With an unconventional and beautiful co-counsel, Drummond plunges into an investigation that will unearth a damning array of secrets and cover-ups - and reveal a master manipulator who doesn't care who or what goes up in flames - as long as Drummond's client burns.

Sean Drummond is forever bucking the big shots

This is the third book in the Sean Drummond series. I am so glad that this has finally been done on Audible. As with the other books in this series it has nail biting tension, action, humor, sarcasm and a Great espionage story. Brian Haig is in my opinion the best author for this genre. I am really hoping that since the series is being filled in that maybe he will begin actively writing again.
Joe Barrett does an excellent job narrating. His timing is perfect and he gets where to emphasize, especially the sarcasm.
This book is MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Audible finally has all 9 Brian Haig novels!

It's true that Private Sector is not yet available in unabridged format, but the other 8 are. Brian Haig is an outstanding author of legal, military, and espionage thrillers. But he has released only 9 novels in 15 years as an author. Haig and Vince Flynn were scheduled to release a jointly written novel when Flynn died of prostate cancer in 2013. I still hope that Haig will complete and release that novel.

The Kingmaker is a great legal and espionage thriller and it is Novel 3 in the Sean Drummond military legal thriller series. Seven of Haig's novels are in the Drummond series. Major Drummond (who is a colonel in more recent novels) is a wise cracking Army JAG lawyer who always manages to win against long odds. In Kingmaker he teams up with a Russian speaking female civilian lawyer to defend an one star Army general indicted for treason. The general is married to Drummond's college girl friend. Joe Barrett does a stellar job of narration. I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND Kingmaker and all of Brian Haig's novels.
