Customers who bought this item also bought
'Brown’s intriguing second Navy JAG thriller (after 2015’s Detained) follows Lt. Cmdr. Caroline McCormick from shipboard duty to the Pentagon’s Code 13, the legal brain trust of the U.S. Navy, and into a harrowing personal and professional mission... Brown addresses the serious constitutional issues raised by the domestic use and control of drones, but readers should be prepared for corrupt, spineless politicians and other stock characters in an entry sure to please the author’s many fans.

About the Author
Don Brown is the author of Thunder in the Morning Calm, The Malacca Conspiracy, The Navy Justice Series, and The Black Sea Affair, a submarine thriller that predicted the 2008 shooting war between Russia and Georgia. Don served five years in the U.S. Navy as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's (JAG) Corps, which gave him an exceptional vantage point into both the Navy and the inner workings "inside-the-beltway" as an action officer assigned to the Pentagon. He left active duty in 1992 to pursue private practice, but remained on inactive status through 1999, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He and his family live in North Carolina, where he pursues his passion for penning novels about the Navy. www.donbrownbooks.com Facebook: Don-Brown

Also, what annoyed me in this book was the too frequent mention of God, Christ, prayer and the Bible. I wanted to read a novel, not an ecclesiastical treaty.
After quickly reading these books, I decided I would not buy anything more written by this author. They are really written at a very low grade level. Such simple writing. There is no suspense, as the reader can see what is happening without having to read more. As an adult these books are a speed read. Don Brown must be trying to capitalize on another writer with a similar name Dan Brown who is an excellent and captivating writer.
If you've ever watched JAG on TV you may remember that this is an elite group of lawyers who take on the "hard" cases in the military to find the truth.
Caroline is a newbie in the Code 13 unit but there is one familiar face, P.J. McDonald, her old flame. However, not too far into the story P.J. is gunned down and a second JAG officer is also killed. This is where Caroline takes on the case. She is determined to avenge P.J.
I was sad to see P.J. die so soon in the story...well, I was hoping that he and Caroline would take up their romance again. But as the story continues, and what a story! The reader is taken on quite a ride trough the "game of justice" as Caroline goes for the jugular!
I throughly enjoyed this action-packed-mob-threatening thriller.

Opening in San Diego, Lieutenant Commander Caroline McCormick, assigned to the Judge Advocate General’s Corps, United State Navy, finds herself unexplicitly promoted to join Code 13 - a “secret” branch of Jag headquartered in the Pentagon. But just as she arrives, before beginning her new tour, friends begin to die. The focus seems to be the new U.S. Navy Drone Force that will serve to monitor the borders of our country. Though not an official task, the Drone Force would also be called on to monitor the 100 mile Fourth Amendment-Free Zone, aka the Constitution Free Zone.
But who was responsible for the deaths - was it the billionaire industrialist that would be charged with building the new drone fleet or the Captain who would be responsible for commanding this new arm of Navy power, both of whom would see their jobs diminish if the Drone Force were to disappear. Or was it the criminal element that could not afford to have the Navy monitoring their profitable import business. And it would be the men and women of JAG and NCIS to put the pieces of the mystery together - without there being more deaths.
The author brings his own experience within JAG to bear on the story. At the same time faith plays a major part in the life of Lt. Commander McCormick as she seeks to come to grips with the death of dear friends.
I normally do not enjoy military drama, but my enjoyment of NCIS and JAG prepared me to engage with this story. It will serve as an excellent spring or summer read as one remembers the dedication of our military to our country and its values. And the reader should look for more from this series.
