Brian Haig – Man in the Middle

Ripped from today’s headlines, Brian Haig’s new novel finds Army lawyer Sean Drummond caught between duty to Washington’s elite and the soldiers in Iraq.

Dispatched to investigate the suicide of one of D.C.’s most influential defense officials, an ardent, early supporter of the war in Iraq, Drummond and his female partner find themselves in the middle of a tug-of-war between Washington’s most influential power brokers and his own personal allegiance to the soldiers dying overseas. What he uncovers are the secrets that led to the war, secrets that, once exposed, would destroy public support and undermine the presidency. Now Drummond faces the greatest moral quandary of his life: what is the true meaning of patriotism?

The book is on a timely topic and really quite good. The reader, however, does not do justice to the character of Sean Drummond. As a consequence, Drummond came across as too much of a heavy. I hope that Scott Brick returns as reader in the next book by Haig.
