An American officer has been murdered on the base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and his soon-to-be-accused killer, the dead mans wife, wants Miami criminal attorney Jack Swyteck to represent her. Swyteck knows nothing about military law, and he can sense that the hypnotically beautiful Lindsey Hart is a liar, a blackmailer, and possibly worse. But if he doesnt agree to defend her, he will never get to see his biological son, a child Swyteck never knew existed. Taking on the might of the U.S. military legal machine on hostile foreign soil could prove to be far more than a bad career move, because the shocking, sordid truth will take no prisoners. And no one, especially Jack Swyteck, will escape unscathed.
