When a naturalized American citizen turns up missing in Iraq, Brent Marks fights the Goliath U.S. government with its own Constitution. Santa Barbara accountant Ahmed Khury responds to the plea of his brother, Sabeen, a suspected money launderer in Iraq. Before Ahmed realizes what has happened to him, he is in Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp, being subjected to torture to extract information that he doesn’t have. The drama outside the courtroom explodes, and when murder, corruption and cover-up enters the picture, nobody, including Brent, is safe.
This is a fantastic but very hard hitting book regarding The Patriots Act, and if or not it is appropriate, you can make your own mind up, but there is some stuff in this novel that might help. It is also a hard hitting legal battle.
Thought provoking, heart wrenching and in cases sad. The author has a great deal of experience in law and has managed to write a great legal novel. There is nothing special about the book, just a good solid novel although not one of those that will “stay” with you I can recommend if you enjoy legal dramas. Be aware there are some difficult moments in the book regarding torture.
Even thought the main character has been featured in other novels this can be read as a standalone.
This is the first book I have read from this author and I will be looking out for some more soon.
