Word of Honor meets A Few Good Men in a stunning thriller that pits the Green Berets, C.I.A., and White House against a top Army lawyer in an investigation that could put the U.S. military on trial.

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. Drummond gets consistently suspicious depositions from all of the Green Berets: Supposedly pursued by Serb soldiers, they left the engagement with wounded Serbs firing at them, and no one can explain the number of deaths. 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.

    " I like the sean drummond military mysteries/thrillers. I'm sorry Mr. Haig has not written one for several years. I did not enjoy his other thrillers as much as I enjoy the drummond stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natasha Lishok | 2/19/2014

    " Love Brian Haig! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 2/18/2014

    " Excellent military legal thriller and read by one of the best golden voices - perfect for wry humor and straight forward smart ass. If you like Sean you'll like David Rollins' Vin Cooper. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kay | 2/3/2014

    " I'm not sure who recommended Haig to me, but I've been reading and enjoying his books from the beginning. Everyone I've shared them with has enjoyed them [both guys and gals]. Sean Drummond is a great character and the books are hard to put down. I'm always sorry when I finish one that there is not another to pick up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Candace | 1/29/2014

    " Lame military investigation / coverup story. Okay, but not great. Best for fans of the genre (wiseass hero in action/adventure/conspiracy story). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kwoomac | 1/27/2014

    " I have to admit I like this series by Brian Haig (Alexander Haig's son)while I don't particularly like his protagonist, Sean Drummond. Drummond is supposed to be a very talented army lawyer whose servicesa are tapped by other branches of the military. The character is stubborn and immature, often making comments typical of a teen age boy..."so's your mother" or "your wife didn't think so" and other comments that make me cringe. But the plots are fun and fast-paced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snap | 1/3/2014

    " It's been a long time since I've read a military/lawyer suspense mystery and I guess this was the one to start with! I read it while Mr. Dragon was in the hospital and it kept me entertained and the time went quickly. I've found that I really like Sean Drummond and will have to go looking for more. "Major Sean Drummond rufuses to lose. Even when the brass pick him to investigate a mass murder "committed" by Green Berets. Even when his vow of duty, honor, and country clashes with his search for the truth. Even when he finds himself forced into an uneasy alliance with a beautiful Army lawyer -- and facing both a chilling conspiracy and a soldier's worst nightmare." Briskly paced, wonderful characters, lots of "attitude" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry Ray | 12/31/2013

    " I thought this was very impressive, especially for a first novel. Haig does a great job with the characters and the plot. It was entertaining throughout. I've already picked up a copy of his second novel. Can't wait to read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 12/27/2013

    " Entertaining read and good author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julian Tan | 12/24/2013

    " Not your run of the mill hero, the protagonist battles using his wits rather than brawn. Made for very entertaining and stimulating reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Opa | 12/1/2013

    " Another interesting Haig book. He combines law and the military as I remember it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 11/19/2013

    " Another entertaining book to read. The main character had a personality that I envied, but I don't think it realistic. And of course, there were always pretty women that made it interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Burnett | 11/9/2013

    " My husband convinced me to read this book. Usually I'm not into military fiction, but this was really good and the main character has a smart-ass personality, which I really like. Can't wait for hubby to finish the next book in the series so I can read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Creative A | 10/11/2013

    " Loving it, so far. Very funny, very paranoid, and everything you'd want in a spy//military/CIA/mystery/take-your-pick kind of novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie Lyn | 10/11/2013

    " As my first military fiction novel, I really enjoyed it. As a first novel by the author, it was fantastic. Can't wait to read the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ankur | 9/24/2013

    " Must read for legal thriller buffs, especially if u like tongue in cheek repartee. "

    " A story about a wiseass JAG lawyer who tries to get to the bottom of an ambush in Serbia. It was a page turner. I had not previously read anything by Brian Haig. After finishing this story, I would certainly pick up another one. "
