Things are going well for David Sloane: he’s basking in the victory of a $1.6 million wrongful-death verdict and enjoying life with his new wife Tina and stepson Jake. That is, until Beverly Ford asks him to sue the US military over the death of her husband James, an officer killed in Iraq. Sloane, by virtue of having been a soldier himself, feels duty bound to take on the seemingly impossible-to-win case.
With virtually no evidence to work with, Sloane enlists Charles Jenkins, a former CIA agent turned PI, to help him find the only witnesses to the overseas death: the men James served with the night he died. When Sloane and Jenkins realize that two of the four officers who came home died soon after, and a third refuses to talk, their only hope is to find the youngest and most mysterious soldier and get the truth out of him…if they can keep him alive long enough to do so.
As Sloane pushes the case forward in the courtroom and the investigation further in the field, he and Jenkins begin to realize just how deep this case goes…and how much danger Sloane and his new family are in.
New York Times bestselling author Robert Dugoni is in top form in this nail-biting page turner.
