Synopsis: From bestselling author Lucian Truscott comes the sequel to his classic Dress Gray -- a modern military epic that echoes the scandals that have made headlines for years -- and still do today.

In the New York Times bestseller Dress Gray, Ry Slaight was a rebellious cadet who almost destroyed West Point when he exposed and solved the murder of a gay cadet in 1969. Now, nearly three decades later, Slaight's been promoted to Lieutenant General and appointed Superintendent of the Military Academy. It's cause for congratulation -- and the occasion for a new blockbuster.

When a female cadet dies during parade, an autopsy establishes that she had sex with multiple partners the night before. Was she the victim of a gang rape? Was there a cadet orgy? Don't ask. Don't tell.

And that's just for starters. Slaight has his hands full: adultery among the senior faculty, sexual harassment, and an off-post beating involving cadets and drugs, not to mention the conservative Congressman who wants West Point closed, convinced it's a den of iniquity. And when the Commandant of Cadets aligns himself with a faction that believes the military academy should produce stone killers rather than an officer corps with a conscience, Slaight finds himself up against the same problems that bedeviled him as a cadet. But where once he almost brought West Point to its knees, now he's the only man who can put it back on its feet, as Full Dress Gray marches inexorably toward a climactic courtroom battle torn straight from today's headlines.

Review: Enigmatic customs, arcane rituals, seemingly archaic attitudes; the secrets that hide within the walls of the Army's prestigious West Point Academy hold tremendous intrigue for the civilian. So much happens to which we will never be privy. So what happens when you take the rigid military school, with its all-important decree of "Duty, honor, and country," and throw in a murder, conniving Congressmen, and perhaps a sex scandal or two? You end up with Lucian Truscott's complex mystery, Full Dress Gray, a compelling novel in which the twists and turns hang on the subtleties of military life.

Ry Slaight, the hero of Dress Gray, returns to West Point Academy 30 years older and quite a few ranks higher. As a lieutenant general--and the new superintendent--Slaight faces the challenge of running a new kind of military academy--one that includes a multiethnic and somewhat feminized body of cadets. On his first day in charge, a young woman collapses in a military parade. What is at first assumed to be a rather typical case of heatstroke, turns out to be a death from unknown causes. When it's discovered the cadet had sex with multiple men the night before her death, Slaight is challenged to find out exactly what's been going on at his academy.

This novel has it all--sex, politics, conspiracy. Truscott writes about military life with the authority of someone who has lived it. --Jenny Brown
