Ripped from today's headlines, Brian Haig's new novel finds Army lawyer Sean Drummond caught between duty to Washington's elite and the soldiers in Iraq. Dispatched to investigate the suicide of one of DCs most influential defense officials, an ardent, early supporter of the war in Iraq, Drummond and his female partner find themselves in the middle of a tug-of-war between Washington's most influential power brokers and his own personal allegiance to the soldiers dying overseas. What he uncovers are the secrets that led to the war, secrets that once exposed would destroy public support and undermine the presidency. Now, Drummond faces the greatest moral quandary of his life: What is the true meaning of patriotism?
When did they start pricing audiobooks so high? Why would I pay this much when with a little work I can find plenty on the web for free or go to a subscription based audio website and dl all I want for 10 bucks/mth? Am I imagining things or have audiobook prices just SKYROCKETED in the last year or so?
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The reader was exceptional. The book has humor plus a military mystery. Sean Drumond is a great character and I'm looking forward to Haig's other books.
A very good book. The narrator doesn't do Scott Drummond justice, but it will entertain you and make you think. With the war in Iraq, and our son's and daughters who are serving there and have served there(mine included), it is educational. And scary. All Americans should read it.
