About the book:
What did the president know?
And when did she know it?
For the members of SEAL Team Six, it was a rare
mission ordered by the president, monitored
in real time from the Situation Room.
The Houthi rebels in Yemen had captured
an American journalist and a member of the
Saudi royal family. Their executions were
scheduled for Easter Sunday. The SEAL team
would break them out.
But when the mission results in spectacular failure,
the finger-pointing goes all the way to the top.
Did the president play political games with
the lives of U.S. service members?
Paige Chambers, a determined young lawyer,
has a very personal reason for wanting to know the answer. The case she files will polarize the nation and test the resiliency of the Constitution. The stakes are huge, the alliances shaky,
and she will be left to wonder if the saying on the Supreme Court building still holds true.
Equal justice under law.
It makes a nice motto. But will it work when one of the most powerful people
on the planet is also a defendant?
About the author:
Randy Singer is a critically acclaimed author and veteran trial attorney. He has penned more than ten legal thrillers, including his award-winning debut novel "Directed Verdict." In addition to his law practice and writing, he serves as a teaching pastor for Trinity Church in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He also teaches classes in advocacy and ethics at Regent Law School and serves on the school's Board of Visitors.
If you are looking for a book with espionage, action and abuse of government power,
this book is for you. From the opening scenes with the Navy Seals,
the author attacks with split second decisions that leave you gasping for air.
The description of the dangerous mission was intense and it seemed
as though I was watching it from a front row seat.
Paige is a wonderful character. She is a great lawyer and is dating a Navy Seal.
I thought they were a perfect match. Will she say yes when he asks her
to marry him? When she takes on a case of epic proportion,
she will be tested, stressed and threatened with such accuracy
that only the strong will survive. What happens when a mission goes
wrong and casualties prevail? For Paige and family members of
Seal Team Six, they are left with heartbreak and unanswered questions.
Is it possible that the president knew more about the mission than she is telling ?
Is it possible to take on the most powerful people in the nation and win?
I loved reading about different laws and how the judicial system works.
The author takes us front and center inside a courtroom where the
stakes are high and secrets could destroy a nation. The CIA , the president,
and other dignitaries are on edge as Paige plows ahead to get answers
and make sure that the Seals didn't die in vain The drones were a bonus
to learn about. It is amazing how they go into the smallest of spaces
and not be detected. The question Paige will confront, is what did
the drones target and destroy ? Will she get justice for Seal Team Six?
This is one book you don't want to miss. It has the components of
a major movie that would draw crowds to see a lawyer take
on the President, CIA and other secret groups buried deep in the government.
I received a copy of this book from LitFuse. The review is my own opinion.
