Then a random burglary sets in motion a chain of events that turns her world upside down. A police investigation reveals the chilling fact that Tom is not who he says he is; he never attended the college he says he did; he once had a different name...and a different face. When Tom is arrested and put on trial for a crime he insists he didn't commit an unspeakable atrocity, a mass murder carried out 13 years ago Claire puts her reputation on the line to defend him. She must try the case ina sealed high security courtroom: a top secret court martial run by the Pentagon, in which all the evidence is classified and all the rules are different. And when it becomes evident that the judge and, in the shadows behind him, a highly placed military leader will let nothing stand in the way of Tom's being convicted of 1st degree murder, Claire's faith in her husband is tested to the very limit.
