really liked it

To be honest, I've had this for a while. A debut thriller from the son of General Alexander Haig, ex-Secretary of State in the US, who is also an ex-army officer? It felt a bit like it would be your standard attempt at a thriller based on who you are rather than what you have written. But I was wrong and this is rather good.

A massacre in during the Bosnian crisis looks like it was the responsibility of a US special forces team and a JAG type lawyer is sent in to uncover the truth. Or rather uncover a convenient truth while avoiding army politics and CIA mis-information. Major Drummond is a great character, sarcastic wise-cracking and with a past that opens great opportunities for further books.

The premise here is an interesting one and the author does not go with an easy resolution or one you might expect. So if you like military drama this is well worth picking up. I’ll certainly be looking for more by the author.
