Brilliant, brash, and politically incorrect, Major Sean Drummond is the right man for the job. The venue is faraway South Korea. The crime is shocking by any standards, East or West. Three American soldiers – one an officer – were seen entering a Seoul apartment party with a young Korean male. The officer – now Drummond's client – is charged with strangling the Korean, and with crimes even more heinous. Ominously, the victim happens to be the son of a venerated war hero currently serving as South Korea's defense minister. But it gets even better: Katherine Carlson, a consummate legal brawler whose specialty is defending controversial clients, is Drummond's old law school rival. Immediately they're locking horns on issues, strategy and principle.
