A Private War (Unabridged)
In the tradition of Nelson DeMille comes an electrifying new military thriller from Patrick Sheane Duncan, author of the "extremely impressive" (Detroit Free Press) debut, Courage Under Fire.
As the new chief law-enforcement officer of the soon-to-be-closed Fort Hazelton, Lieutenant Colonel Meredith Cleon expects to deal with nothing more challenging than a few petty thefts. But the quiet of the small post is shattered by the brutal murder of a young woman — the aide of the base's general — found tied to the back of a target on the rifle range.
"Director and screenwriter Duncan (Courage Under Fire) returns with an effective tale about murder on a military base...Practically begging to be made into a film, this succeeds as a novel of intrigue on its own merits." (Publishers Weekly)
"A Private War takes no prisoners. Everyone is either a suspect or a target...Patrick Sheane Duncan creates a fascinating story line, which enables the readers to see what happens during a military police investigation. This is an excellent story created by an expert writer." (BookBrowser)
"The noted screenwriter's second novel [is] a perfectly entertaining military thriller with an appealingly strong female protagonist." (Booklist)
