(From the publisher):
Haig's brazen JAG attorney with the self-deprecating sense of humor is back in the most important case of his career. This time it starts on home turf in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where Sean is called upon - begged, actually - to defend Brigadier General William T. Morrison in the biggest treason case in United States history. Up against the fiercest prosecutor in the Army, Drummond may be in way over his head. Yet Morrison and his CIA executive wife, Mary, won't consider anyone else for the job. And Drummond's finding it hard to say no especially since Mary just happens to be an old flame.
Fighting a list of charges that starts with treason and perjury and ends with two counts of murder, Drummond is going to need a lot more than the confidence of those counting on him. What he gets is Katrina Mazorski - a Russian-speaking co-counsel like no other. With her skintight, black leather pants and pierced navel, she is the antithesis of a buttoned-down lawyer. But as Drummond soon learns, there's more to Katrina than her looks.
