OVERVIEW

A group of Navy Seals lands with quiet stealth on the terrain of Yemen under the cover of darkness. The mission is simple: to rescue two prisoners of war, sentenced to be executed. In the flurry of the next few hours, they realize their carefully planned mission is doomed. The last shot is fired. All Seals are dead. Why did their mission not go as planned? Why did the president act as though she knew the mission would be fatal? Why did she not allow the bodies to be recovered? A young lawyer, Paige Chambers, must find the answers in a case that is personal.

In a rapid turn of events, Paige Chambers finds herself fighting for the truth at the highest level in America, the Supreme Court. The experience leaves her reaching into herself for skill and courage she doesn’t know if she possesses, all the while searching for healing for her broken heart. In this highly political novel, the issues behind a corrupted government, war ethics, and loyalty are examined with page turning excitement. Readers are given insights on military training, political infighting, international espionage, and global tensions.  Even more engaging are matters of morality, trust, courage, forgiveness, and self-sacrifice, all strong elements of a Christian way of life, and all elements that Paige Chambers must confront in trying to find balance as an attorney and as a Christian.
