Is the Commander-in-Chief shielded from prosecution when troops are sent into battle and ultimately killed during the action? That’s the question at stake in this latest legal thriller by Randy Singer. At issue is a group of Special Forces sent in to rescue an American Citizen being held by a group of terrorists. Based on confidential information, the Special Forces are sent in but find the information was wrong and the casualties are numerous. After the failed attempt, a lone “Patriot” reaches out to attorney Paige Chambers with information that suggests the President knew the intel was flawed but she sent the Special Forces in anyway. Paige teams up with grandstanding attorney, Wyatt Jackson, to bring action against the President. As the “Patriot” continues to feed them information and the President’s council press back with a full attack, it will all come down to a ruling from the Supreme Court to determine what, if any, responsibility can be attributed to the President. Checks and balances in our legal system? You make the call after you go BUY THIS BOOK!
This story is one that I would deem as “Ripped From The Headlines”. Randy has written a book that could eerily come true in the not so distant future, but he writes it in such a way that even a simpleton as myself can understand. I’ve always appreciated his level of writing that explains different legal procedures without writing above my head and leaving me confused. The characters in this story are lovable, irritable and some are even downright despicable. The flow of the story is easy to follow, tough to stomach and never routine.
Is this a "Guys Book"? A story that pits our Special Forces and the job they do against the government that sends them into harm’s way with little or no repercussions is bone-chilling. Making this even better is all of the legal maneuvering that takes place behind the scenes. If you must read something this weekend, add this to your list!
