9780230705661: In the Name of Honour

The McCarrans and the Gallaghers, two families with deep ties to the military, have been close for decades, ever since Vietnam. Now a new generation of soldiers is fighting on a distant battlefield, and Lt. Brian McCarran, the distinguished general's son, has recently returned from a harrowing tour in Iraq. Traumatized by his war-time experiences, Brian depends on his lifelong friendship with Kate Gallagher, who happens to be married to Brian's commanding officer in Iraq, Capt. Joe D'Abruzzo. But Kate is dealing with trauma of her own: since coming home, D'Abruzzo seems a changed man, and lately he's become paranoid and abusive. Tragedy strikes when Brian shoots and kills D'Abruzzo on their army post in Virginia. Brian immediately confesses but claims self-defense--D'Abruzzo, a black-belt martial artist, came to his quarters, accused him of having an affair with Kate, and attacked him. Or so Brian says and now he faces a high-profile court martial. Before the case is over, they will all learn that families, like war, can break the sturdiest of souls.

From the Back Cover:

"Powerful and devastating."―Richmond Times-Dispatch

Anthony McCarran, one of the army's most distinguished generals, was devastated by the loss of his longtime friend Jack Gallagher, who was killed in Vietnam. For years, the McCarran and Gallagher families have remained close, watching a new generation of soldiers face combat. Today, the general's son Lt. Brian McCarran is back from Iraq. Traumatized by the experience, there's only one person Brian wishes to confide in: Kate Gallagher.

"Explosive."―Library Journal (starred review)

As the daughter of a fallen soldier, Kate understands the pain of war. But as the wife of Brian's commanding officer, the volatile and shell-shocked Capt. Joe D'Abruzzo, there's only so much Kate can do to offer comfort―and only so many secrets Brian can share...

"An absolute humdinger of a murder mystery...unrelenting suspense."―Scott Turow

Tragedy strikes when Brian shoots and kills D'Abruzzo on their army post in Virginia after a bitter confrontation. Now, in a high-profile court-martial, Brian must face old demons and new enemies as he fights to prove his innocence with the help of Paul Terry, one of the army's most accomplished lawyers; Terry's co-counsel, who happens to be Brian's sister, Meghan; and Kate's unwavering support. But before the case is over, Brian will learn that families, like war, can break the sturdiest of souls―and hardest of hearts.
