Rule of Law: A Book Review

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?

My Review

I have had some sleepless nights lately…and I blame this book! I am usually not a fan of the suspenseful thriller and can’t always fight the urge to sneak a peek at the last page, but this book grabbed me almost immediately and kept my interest through the twists, turns and backflips it took to the very end. 

 The plot could have been ripped right from the pages of recent history, and puts you in a position that is challenging. Based on real legal cases defended by the author, an experienced trail attorney, the authenticity of the book is flawless.  Combine this with an always heroic SEAL team mission and you have a nail-biting thriller.  I enjoy the genuineness the author lends to the military world and the main character is the very definition of tough, determined and justice seeking.  During the course of the book she is required to dig deep and face some personal fears and insecurities but the ending will leave you breathless along with her. 

If you value your sleep don’t start it on a weeknight.  Save it for a relaxing weekend because you will not be able to put it down!
