Caroline is just getting her feet wet at the prestigious Code 13, but is thankful for at least one familiar face—old flame, PJ McDonald. He loops her into the assignment he is currently working on—the legality of a proposed drone-sharing contract with Homeland Security that would allow the sale of drones for domestic surveillance. The contractor wants a legal opinion clearing the contract for congressional approval. But the Mob wants the proposal dead-on-arrival.
But when McDonald is gunned down in cold blood and a second JAG officer is killed, one thing becomes clear: Whoever is ordered to write the legal opinion on the drones has become a target. Which is exactly why Caroline goes to her commanding officer and volunteers to write the legal opinion herself. She is determined to avenge PJ’s death and trap the killer, even if that means making herself a target.

- awesome read! by Mark on 7/13/2016
Don Brown is one of my favorite authors, and I have enjoyed his fictional naval novels. It took me a while to get into this one though (probably just me). I read a few chapters and let the book sit for a few weeks before I picked it up. However, once I got back into it, it picked up and I got pulled into the story that soon had non-stop action, drama, and suspense. I should have read the back cover a little better so I wouldn't have gotten too attached to one certain character, so I was bummed out about that part.
Brown does a great job go showing what most likely goes on behind the scenes when a bill is coming up before Congress with the special interest groups, threats, blackmail, deals, and more. Although the people and situations were fictional, it is a bit disconcerting to realize some of that stuff actually goes on behind the scenes.
I also learned more about the 4th amendment and privacy laws, and how different things affect that amendment and freedom. Brown wrote in such a way that left me wavering between the issue at hand in the book: drones used by the government.
I liked the characters in the book, and there were a couple of surprises about them that I did not see coming. Once I got into the book, I didn't want to put it down, and finished it in my car before work this morning. It was a great and entertaining read, and educational in addition.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
