With just three days to prevent the assassination of the president, Army lawyer Sean Drummond races the clock in the high-stakes countdown of his career. Army lawyer Sean Drummond’s new posting is to the Office of Special Projects, a CIA cell that handles the most dangerous threats. When the white house chief of staff is found brutally murdered, there’s a note beside him promising more victims—including the president. Sean leaps into action, teaming up with a beautiful colleague to try to stop the assassin. As the killer stalks the campaign trail, apparently driven by a $500 million bounty on the president’s head, all arrows point to a member of the white house security detail who’s gone missing. Only after a dramatic hostage rescue that culminates in an intense shootout does Sean realize law enforcement’s horrible miscalculation—and what must be done to set things right.

    " I didn't know Brian Haig was the son of former Secretary of State Alexander Haig. Anyway, I loved this book. It has got to be fun to write for th main character, Drummond. I love reading all his wisecracks. The book never slows down and truely keeps the pages turning. One plot twist in the end kept me form giving it 5 stars. Very enjoyable and fast read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolphe | 2/15/2014

    " The scenario here is a bit over the top, but Haig certainly manages to pull it off in a manner that makes it well worth the effort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Herring | 2/3/2014

    " Excellent. Just a brilliant piece of fiction. Well written, fast paced, and with an ending that leaves you shocked and craving more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Pearce | 1/22/2014

    " This was a very enjoyable thriller. The main character is a wise guy. I liked him a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shannon | 1/19/2014

    " Brian Haig remains one the the most humerous suspense writers out there. In this book, Major Sean Drmmond, on loan from the Army JAG Corps to the CIA is loaned out to the FBI in an attempt to catch a group of vicious murderers who claim they will kill the president within 48 hours. This announcement comes when it is discovered the the White House Chief of Staff, his wife, and their selective service body guards are all found brutally murdered. Thus begins the wild ride of trying to stop these criminals as they continue to mow down the Washington elite, with obvious insider help. My husband thinks this is Haig's best, I just didn't think the ending was entirely believable. But this is still a book you can't put down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 L.W. | 1/14/2014

    " I don't know what it is about this guy's writing, but I can sit down and can't quit reading. I like the way he thinks. I like the way he writes and he's just a bit twisted, which I can respect and appreciate. I loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 12/19/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book despite the fact that the main character is a derivative of Demille's John Corey. This book captures you right at the hook and does not let go until its fulfilling conclusion. The twist is really great! "

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

    " Another very interesting thriller but he uses too many f-words. "

    " A fast paced thriller with the main character, Major Sean Drummond a witty, wisecracking military lawyer. Also gives a very accurate portrayal of the inner workings of the US military.A very good and entertaining read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Royce | 12/9/2013

    " I would have liked this book more if I had not read the 6th book first. I immediately knew who the killer was when something happened and wondered how Sean did not pick up on it sooner. It also makes me think he should have solved the case a lot faster in the 6th book. "

    " As murder/spy mysteries go, this one was one of the best I had read in a long time. All the characters are both greedy/despicable and sympathetic. You meet good guys who fataly flawed and bad guys with a conscience. Well written and a great, fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Mcsharry | 3/15/2013

    " I liked the writing style of this author. It's the first book by this author that I've read and I'll definitely pick up another one. He's very sarcastic and I like it =) The only thing I don't like is the fact that I figured out the ending beforehand. But it was still a good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 9/13/2012
