Secret Sanction

By Brian Haig (Electronic Book, 2001)
Sean Drummond is a maverick attorney who cloaks his expertise with smart-mouthed self-deprecation and cynicism. One of the Army's most brilliant lawyers, he's also seen his share of infantry fighting, and when a military scandal causes a global outcry, the brass pick Drummond to head the investigation.

In a remote war at Europe's center, somebody has committed a cold-blooded massacre--thirty-five victims shot in the head at close range, execution style. The world media blames a U.S. Special Forces team assigned to the region. But Drummond can't take on faith the testimony of the accused Green Berets who protest their innocence. Then, in quick succession, a mole inside Drummond's team leaks information to the Oval Office . . . an ambitious reporter digs up a dangerous secret from Drummond's past . . . and a brutal murder takes place alarmingly close to home.

Forced into an uneasy alliance with Captain Lisa Morrow, the Army's best defense lawyer, Drummond uncovers a vast conspiracy of frightening proportion. And the deeper he probes, the more he discovers how duty, honor, and country can clash-in ways both deadly and heartrending.
