Overly detailed, but offers interesting characters, plenty of excitement and the pleasure of seeing a complicated plan coalesce.

Synopsis

Beloved community physician and veteran Dr. Michael Reece has returned home from service in Afghanistan a changed man. Recovered from a horrific injury sustained in a Taliban ambush, he has made strides in returning to his normal civilian life. That all changes when he learns he is to receive the military's highest award; the Medal of Honor. The resulting publicity as well as the shocking murder of his former childhood mentor and current United States Senator threatens to expose secrets from his past he had hoped to keep hidden forever. The aftermath forces him to make decisions that could not only threaten his own life, but the lives of those closest to him. As the hunt for the killer escalates and demons from his past return, Reece must deal with his own survivor's guilt and face hard choices that could either give him peace or destroy him. He must rely on the bonds of brotherhood forged both on the battlefield and in the horrors of the past to find a way to survive and save his family. The worlds of politics, war and crime collide in a story that will pull the reader into a world where very little is as it seems on the surface.
