Sinopsis:

When Sergeant Billy Frazier is called to meet with Captain Olson, his illusions are shattered...

He stands accused of purchasing and transferring drugs to Sergeant James Babcock, but due to Frazier’s experience, Captain Olson is eager to ensure he gets the help he needs to avoid a lengthy term in jail.

Taking his advice, Frazier hires Captain Jack Hayes to represent him.

But their first meeting doesn’t go smoothly.

Why would a decorated Sergeant be working in admin? Surely there were better jobs for a man in Frazier’s position?

Maintaining his innocence, Frazier just knows that Jack is the lawyer he needs to escape being punished for a crime he did not commit.

But then Judge DiMarco is assigned to the case; a man who tolerates no-nonsense, a man who believes in guilty until proven innocent... and he will leave no stone unturned.

Frazier is faced with the past and must handle the strain. He can’t help wondering if the jury would really believe him to be one of the greatest drug dealers in the U.S. Army.

Jack Hayes, on the other hand, is eager to win the case in any way possible.

Believing his client’s innocence, he is determined to fight until he wins. Whatever the cost.

Is Frazier really worth the actions Jack finds himself doing?

Before long, the case takes an unexpected turn, one no one could have predicted.

How long can Jack’s faith in Frazier last?

The Price of Victory is a chilling case of deception, lies and the ruthless pursuit of justice.

Praise for Vincent S Green

“Vincent Green has the literary and legal skill to make both the German POWs' actions and the American Army lawyer' tactics come to life." - John Casey, winner of the 1989 National Book Award

"A thrilling legal mystery" - Tom Casey, bestselling author of Trade Off

“Just about perfect... must reading for fans of courtroom drama” – Kirkus Reviews

Born in 1953, Vincent S Green served as an Army JAGC in Germany and Kansas where he defended over 200 soldiers at courts-martial and obtained acquittals in major murder, drug, and robbery cases. He studied writing with National Book Award winner John Casey and was a Henry Hoyns Fellow at the University of Virginia MFA program. He subsequently moved to Los Angeles and drew on his experience in the army to write The Price of Justice.

From Publishers Weekly:

With the intensity of The Caine Mutiny , this dramatic first novel by a former Army lawyer depicts the court- martial of a career soldier brought up on charges of drug dealing. Billy Frazier, a Special Forces hero who has taken an administrative posting in Germany in an attempt to save his marriage, is accused of smuggling and selling hashish, offenses punishable by up to 40 years in Leavenworth prison. Frazier, who maintains he is being framed, asks Jack Hayes to defend him. Hayes, long pestered by his wife to join her father's corporate law firm, has remained a military lawyer because he hates the idea of "defending big insurance companies." Hayes survives a visit with Frazier's alleged source, who lives in a section of Amsterdam where even the police are reluctant to venture, but still must come up with a defense that will impress the hard-line judge, known as the Whopper for the size of his sentences. Although Frazier's main accuser is jailed on charges of robbing an Army payroll vault, the judge disallows a vital piece of evidence for the defense; then the prosecution turns over a high card that Hayes can't beat except by stretching the limits of his and his profession's ethical code. Unlike Wouk's military courtroom classic, this taut debut closes with a shattering surprise.
