Zack Brewer faces a choice. It can prevent the next war. But it will cost the life of the person he loves the most. JAG Officer Zack Brewer’s prosecution of three terrorists posing as Navy chaplains was called the “court martial of the century” by the press. Now, with the limelight behind him, all Zack wants to do is forget. But the radical Islamic organization behind the chaplains has a long memory—and a thirst for revenge. Now the Navy has a need for Zack that eclipses all else. When an unthinkable act of aggression brings Israel and its Arab neighbors to the brink of war, Zack and co-counsel Diane Colcernian are called to the case of a lifetime. As leading nations focus their gaze upon these two, other eyes are watching as well. Zack and Diane are in harm’s way. A kidnapping, an ultimatum…and suddenly, Zack faces an impossible choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sign me up! The second book in the Navy Justice Series, continues with the kidnapping of Diane Colcernian, the woman Zach loves, as revenge for winning his controversial last case. When the radical Muslims do something unthinkable: blow up one of their own sacred landmarks so that Israel or America will be blamed, Zach is chosen to prosecute the case. But to win the case, he knows it will cost Diane her life. I don't agree with Brown's eschatological view, but nonetheless, I was caught up in the story. I also didn't want it to end because then I'd have to shelve the guy on the cover. If he's a poster boy for the Navy, sign me up!
