There is no doubt that Corporal Munro and Sergeant Philips killed Major Carmichael to protect their fellow soldiers. Military policeman, Captain Jake Robinson, investigated the case and he’s all set to see that justice is served. But, as the court martial approaches, it is apparent that the evidence has been tampered with. Somebody doesn’t want the truth to get out.
Major Carmichael had powerful friends who are willing to do anything to uphold his reputation as a hero. He has The Family – a dominating force in the world of politics and the criminal world. As part of the prosecution, Jake finds himself in a difficult position; witnesses are suddenly unable to testify and the two soldiers will be hung out to dry unless he has the courage to defend them.
The truth, however, comes at a price. Jake becomes deeply embroiled in the dangerous world of The Family when he is seconded to a special section of MI5 in Bolivia. His investigation takes him across the country, challenging abduction, rape and murder. But even with his colleagues, their specialized training and a gun-wielding nun, can one man defeat such a powerful enemy?
