Secret Sanction (Sean Drummond, #1)Secret Sanction by Brian Haig
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sean Drummond is a lawyer – a JAG officer. Sardonic, sarcastic, and self-deprecating at times, Sean is a good guy, a patriot that has taken his oath to “preserve, protect, and defend” to heart. Each book is a complex who-done-it murder mystery in a military environment – from Baghdad to South Korea to Washington DC to Abu Ghraib, Leavenworth, and more.

Intricate plots, no objectionable language, little sex – all fade to black; Brian Haig shopped around with regard to narrators. Preference? Scott Brick or Christopher Lane – but they are all acceptable. There is a bit of violence – Sean gets himself into some scrapes, but nothing gratuitous.

Written by Brian Haig, the Sean Drummond Series consists of seven novels – Secret Sanction, Mortal Allies, The Kingmaker, Private Sector, The President’s Assassin, Man in the Middle, and The Night Crew. The novels range from 12-17+ hours in length, each story has a beginning-middle-end, and you can jump in anywhere, no need to read in sequence. Released over a period of 10+ years – several publishers.

Recommended mysteries.
