Army investigator Major Sean Drummond investigates a possibe mass murder situation involving U. S. Army members. A beautiful Army lawyer complicates Drummond's life.
Character is wise, but thoroughly enjoyable
I'm not big on military themes, but I thoroughly enjoyed this first book in the Sean Drummond series by Brian Haig. Sean Drummond is a military lawyer called in to investigate an apparent ambush and slaughter of Serbian men by a group of American Green Berets. Once he begins digging into details, things look worse and worse, and Sean begins to question his notions of duty and honor.
The surprising part of this novel was the humor! Sean is a smart aleck; sarcastic, funny and yet he doesn't take himself too seriously. He's one of those guys that can be obnoxious, but is right there when you need him to be. I certainly didn't expect to enjoy this book so much. I will definitely read the other five titles in the series.
interesting story - great character. First in series. If you're a JAG fan, you'll picture Harm in the lead!
A good first book by Brian Haig son of former Secretary of State, Alexander Haig.
A battalion of Serbs has been senselessly murdered in Kosovo and the Green Berets stand accused. Now, Major Sean Drummond, a top Army lawyer, is assigned to investigate this unspeakable atrocity. But of course, no one saw anything. Teamed with a straight-laced prosecutor and a sexy defense attorney, Drummond probes further but forces continue to hide the truth. Soon a reporter is found dead, Drummond suspects there's a traitor on his team, and everyone from the CIA to the president may be involved in a cover-up that could threaten the stability of the most powerful nation in the world.
