About this title

Synopsis:

Claire Heller Chapman has the perfect life. She's a Harvard Law professor and criminal defense attorney known for taking on - and winning - tough cases. She's also happily married to Tom, and has a six-year-old daughter she adores. Then Tom is arrested by a team of government agents and accused of a 13-year-old wartime atrocity he insists he didn't commit. Claire soon discovers that her husband is not who he says he is, that once he had a different name, even a different face. Now Claire must defend Tom in a top-secret military court-marshal. As her career, and even her life, are put in jeopardy, she must try to believe in her husband's innocence - even when everything indicates that he is a killer

Review:

When (not if---the deal has already been signed) this terrific thriller gets made into a movie, you might see Morgan Freeman as a crusty lawyer who specializes in taking on the military establishment tell the actress playing ace Boston barrister and Harvard Law professor Claire Heller Chapman, "Every civilian who's ever gone into a military general court-martial and tried to attack the foundations of the military has lost his case. No exceptions. The military is a tight, closed fraternity. They take it real serious. Military justice is a deadly serious business." Claire has to realize this as she prepares to defend her husband--the man she knows as Tom Chapman, but who the Army says is Ron Kubik-- on charges that he took part in a massacre of 87 civilians in San Salvador 13 years before. Full of doubts about Tom's innocence and her own ability to prove it in an unfamiliar arena, Claire is brought to exciting, moving life by the extravagantly gifted Joseph Finder, whose previous thrillers ( Extraordinary Powers, The Zero Hour) are available in paperback.
