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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 2/1/2014

    " Listening on audiocassette. A story about the CIA, the Army, the war in Iraq, how Saudi Arabia is involved, and the decisions made concerning what is to be covered up is confusing at times. It's mind-boggling to consider what must go on behind the scenes in espionage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Penny | 1/31/2014

    " Not one of Haig's better ones but still interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannine | 1/28/2014

    " I really liked it, one of those Ludlum kind of government/secret service kind of books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 1/13/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 1/4/2014

    " A smart action thriller. Too many F words "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 12/16/2013

    " I enjoy Sean Drummond and the book was enjoyable....good plot twists. a little descriptive in some situations....I guess not all readers know much history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karate1kid | 12/12/2013

    " I love the cynical observations in this one. It would have been funny if it wasn't so sad. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derk | 11/29/2013

    " This is about the 4th book in the series I've read and I may be getting tired of the style. The plot wasn't too bad and the action OK. However, nothing special. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ruth | 11/25/2013

    " I liked his other book, The Kingmaker, however, this one is slow and boring and a had to stop reading 1/3 into the book. Everytime I picked up the book, I read 3 pages and couldn't go on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 11/18/2013

    " Haig's best book yet. Set in Iraq, it mixes his usual tongue-in-cheek main character Drummond with gravity and seriousness that does not occur in his other books. Very enjoyable, as well as though-provoking. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger | 10/30/2013

    " Very good - not excellent - but well worth reading "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne Holmes | 2/13/2013

    " Excellent author. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maggie | 11/2/2012

    " I'm listening to this in the car and hating the narrator. Normally Brian Haig's books are read by Scott Brick, who is fabulous & really imparts life to the Sean Drummond character. I'm not loving this book, perhaps if I read the 'book' version it would be better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete | 10/30/2012

    " Sean Drummond is thrown into an impossible situation with far reaching social and political implications which he smashes through with reckless abandon and sarcastic comments. This does not dissapoint. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ruth | 10/22/2012

    " Anything by Haig is wonderful. Very good cliffhanger suspense mysteries. Like the best of Grisham. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charley | 5/27/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ala | 4/17/2011

    " The action lagged a bit in the middle, or more accurately I didn't foresee any kind of resolution by then. Some of the descriptions of gov't agencies and functions could have been streamlined. The ending was pretty fantastic and explained everything very well. "

    " only about 1/2 through but another great character. The author seems to have a great background in military but that doesn't dominate a strong story line with a fun leading man. I plan to see what else he's written too! "
