What did the president know? And when did she know it?

For the members of SEAL Team Six, it was a rare mission ordered by the president, monitored in real time from the Situation Room. The Houthi rebels in Yemen had captured an American journalist and a member of the Saudi royal family. Their executions were scheduled for Easter Sunday. The SEAL team would break them out.

But when the mission results in spectacular failure, the finger-pointing goes all the way to the top.

Did the president play political games with the lives of U.S. service members?

Paige Chambers, a determined young lawyer, has a very personal reason for wanting to know the answer. The case she files will polarize the nation and test the resiliency of the Constitution. The stakes are huge, the alliances shaky, and she will be left to wonder if the saying on the Supreme Court building still holds true.

Equal justice under law.

It makes a nice motto. But will it work when one of the most powerful people on the planet is also a defendant?

I am finally catching my breath again after reading this incredibly captivating legal thriller. Beginning with the action-packed opening sentences of the book that swept me into SEAL Team Six's mission, and continuing throughout each fascinating chapter, I was gripped by this story. Singer knocks this one out of the park as he expertly weaves together military intelligence, political machinations, and legal issues into a tale that, though fiction, is far too real for comfort. Crisply written scenes and credible personalities bring the pages to life, and I often felt as if I were watching real events play out as I read. Simultaneously mesmerizing, entertaining, educational (I especially loved the glimpse into the workings of the Supreme Court!), and thought-provoking, Rule of Law is impossible to put down until the final page is turned. Even if you don't normally read books in this genre, I predict you will find yourself riveted to the pages of this exceptional novel. Don't miss it!
