Book Description


See all titles by Brian Haig.

Major Sean Drummond, a former combat infantryman turned Army lawyer, gets assigned a case he doesn't much care for. Who could? It has career-breaker draped over it like a pup tent. The Judge Advocate General's Corp (read: JAG), which he's attached to, has posted him to Bosnia where a US Special Forces team is waiting for him to decide whether it's guilty of mass murder. Thirty-five Serbs have been found dead, bullets fired into their brains from close range, a carbon copy St. Valentine's Day massacre transferred to the Balkans. At least that's what the Serbs have begun to claim, fingering the Green Berets in a series of increasingly uncomfortable press conferences. Is all that part of a propaganda shuffle, or has the Geneva Conference indeed been flouted? It doesn't take long for Drummond to realize that there are agendas within agendas, that gimlet eyes are trained on him as unrelentingly as his own attention is focused on evidence sifting, and that he might well have become someone's idea of a custom-made sacrificial lamb. Why, for instance, are so many highly placed people suddenly hostile to him? Why does he get the unsettling sense that of the two hotshot legal guns reporting to him, one is a definite mole? And why, whenever the nine Green Berets profess their innocence, do they seem so thoroughly . . . coached? But Drummond, a combination hard-nose and closet romantic, doggedly pursues his investigation. His tone is sardonic, his expectations far from great—a stance predictable in a man who values honor while having to cope with a society that merely pays it lip service. Well written and briskly paced, while in addition raising, evocatively, the ever-interesting question about whether loyalty is allowed to be blind.

5 of 5 Secret Sanction November 14, 2010
Reviewer: P. Sutton from Inglewood, West Australia  
I bought this book from the recommendation from the VJ newsletter as I had not heard of Brian Haig.
It is a great story, fast action and a really good look behind the scenes at the JAG and the way it works. Once againI was that impressed with this book  I had to buy the series and hunted signed copies of all his books.
If you like a legal/army thriller then this author is the master of the genre and once again take a punt like I did and read this it will not disappoint.
