Just minutes after winning a $1.6 million wrongful-death verdict, attorney David Sloane confronts the one case that threatens to blemish his unbeaten record in the courtroom. Beverly Ford wants Sloane to sue the United States government and military in the mysterious death of her husband, James, a national guardsman killed in Iraq. While a decades-old military doctrine might make Ford's case impossible to win, Sloane, a former soldier himself, is compelled to find justice for the widow and her four children in what is certain to become the biggest challenge of his career. Sloane calls on his friend, reclusive former CIA agent Charles Jenkins, to track down the other men serving with Ford the night he died. Alarmingly, two of the four who returned home alive didn't stay that way for long, and though the mission's wheelchairbound commander now works for a civilian contractor, he refuses to talk. The final -- and youngest -- soldier is also the most elusive, but he's their only shot at discovering the truth -- if Sloane and Jenkins can keep him alive long enough to tell it. Sloane must race to uncover what really happened on that fatal mission, not only to bring justice to a family wronged but to keep himself and the people closest to him from becoming the next casualties....

    " Another winner for Robert Dugoni. This is Dugoni's second David Sloane book. A must-read! Attorney David Sloane is asked to take on a case against the United States Military by the widow of a dead National Guard soldier. Believing the case to be near impossible to win, David Sloane agrees to look into the facts of the case just to appease the mourning widow. What David Sloane finds is alot more than he expected. Wrongful Death is a John Gresham or Scott Turow type legal thriller. I could not put this book down. "

    " Can't put it down. Very convicting about the army' s life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Newland | 1/25/2014

    " I heard Dugoni at the May meeting of the Pacific Northwest Writer's Association and grabbed this book at the library the next morning. I'm not much into legal thrillers, but I enjoyed his book a lot. Good pacing, nice action, believable characters, and a Pac NW setting! Very nice. I'll be asking the library to get the rest of his books asap. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nickitopster | 1/17/2014

    " I always enjoy a good story with twists and turns but it's also nice to learn something. While the book is fiction, it was interesting to learn in the "Acknowledgement" section the parts that were non-fiction (e.g., the Feres Doctrine). It takes time for an author to research his subject so that there's a ring of truth to it and Mr. Dugoni has obviously done so. Looking forward to more books from him! "

    " another enjoyable mystery by dugoni, thanks, jan. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samantha | 1/15/2014

    " I don't know if I believe the hype that Robert Dugoni is the next John Grisham but he's better than most. This book kept me interested the whole way through even though the middle was a little unbelievable. The beginning sets up the story nicely, but it's kind of a letdown getting to the middle with Sloane's wife being threatened. However the ending really picks up. I enjoyed the thoughts of some soldier's wife suing the United States Government because of the body armor we sent over there. It's a great concept. The twists and turns this book takes will keep you reading way past the time you have set to put the book down. I look forward to this author's next book and would recommend it to mystery and suspense readers. "

    " Well written. The story moved quickly. But, I was not thrilled with the ending. Part of the ending was great but the civilian company involvement didn't do much for me. "

    " This book concerns an attorney in Seattle who gets a case of a young widow whose husband died in Iraq. She is filing a wrongful death claim against the government. The case involves a vast conspiracy between the army and a nasty chemical company that sold chemical weapons to Saddam. "

    " A legal thriller based on military actions that took place in Iraq. I really can't go into the plot without creating spoilers, but will say, based on reading this novel, that I will make a point of reading Dugoni's previous works. "
