Legal and political thriller with a gentle thread of faith -- Rule of Law

After reading -- and really enjoying -- a few of Randy Singer's legal suspense/thrillers, I was excited to see that he had a new book out. I have to admit that a couple of things made me think a little while before deciding to go ahead with this one: (1) it appeared to be (and in fact, is) pretty political and (2) it is longer than most books I read (456 pages). I am definitely glad that I went ahead and gave it a try -- it was a really good read.

This story is indeed heavy in the legal and political aspects.  It's almost scary how close it could come to being something from today's headlines. There were a few times that I did get a little bogged down and had to fight to keep going through the details.  

But what really kept me going in those tougher-to-read times was what I would call gentle threads of relationship and of faith. Those especially showed up in the life of Paige, one of the main characters of the story. Her continuing love for Patrick, her finding her unexpected place in the SEAL family, and her steadily growing faith ran through the story even as she was involved in fighting the biggest legal and political battle of her career. 

Randy Singer showed his great skill as an author by putting all those pieces together into a well-crafted story that should fit the tastes of a wide range of readers. If you are looking for a light read, this may not be for you. But for just about anyone else, I would highly recommend Rule of Law.

Thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group for providing a copy of this book.  I was happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book: 

What did the president know? And when did she know it?

For the members of SEAL Team Six, it was a rare mission ordered by the president, monitored in real time from the Situation Room. The Houthi rebels in Yemen had captured an American journalist and a member of the Saudi royal family. Their executions were scheduled for Easter Sunday. The SEAL team would break them out. 

But when the mission results in spectacular failure, the finger-pointing goes all the way to the top.

Did the president play political games with the lives of U.S. service members?

Paige Chambers, a determined young lawyer, has a very personal reason for wanting to know the answer. The case she files will polarize the nation and test the resiliency of the Constitution. The stakes are huge, the alliances shaky, and she will be left to wonder if the saying on the Supreme Court building still holds true.

Equal justice under law.

It makes a nice motto. But will it work when one of the most powerful people on the planet is also a defendant?
