Summary

In this heart-pounding debut thriller, a young jag still in awe of the Marine Corps’ hallowed code of honor must confront an enemy within the ranks   Dale Riley, fresh out of law school, joined the Marine Corps to be a hero. As a JAG attorney, he was out to save the world. But when he takes on the wrong client—a combat pilot accused of unlawfully bombing a village in northeastern Afghanistan, killing seventy-eight Afghan noncombatants and five United States Marines—his world quickly comes undone. It’s not enough for Dale to save his career. Now, he’s fighting to save his life, and the lives of his wife and son.   In the tradition of A Few Good Men, nothing in James M. DuPont’s taut debut novel is as it seems, and the line between guilt and innocence is as delicate and unpredictable as the line between life and death itself.
