Lieutenant Colonel Sean Drummond, a cocky US Army lawyer whoâs not afraid to be blunt, finds himself up to his neck in a case he didnât ask to take.
Five US soldiers, tasked with guarding Iraqi prisoners, stand accused of committing depraved atrocities against their charges. Drummond is assigned to defend one of them: a hardscrabble young woman who is either incredibly naive or deceptively evilâ¦ and whose incriminating photos made the case an international scandal.
Drummond and his cocounsel, the fiercely antiwar Katherine Carlson, have a complicated and combative history, but they canât afford to get distracted now. They must determine what drove five young patriots to fall so far to the dark side of human nature. As Drummond uncovers evidence that his client has been used as a pawn in a secret strategy involving torture, he realizes that heâs caught up in a conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of government. Breaking down the US militaryâs formidable stonewalling could destabilize the government and put his life at riskâbut Drummondâs not the type to back away from a good fight.
