About this 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?
I love reading and sharing my latest book with readers like you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I am friends with many authors and also have a client relationship with many of them. This book may be one I received from a current or future client. Regardless of my relationship with the author, this review reflects my honest opinions of the book.
Political thrillers are not my go to genre, but politics is something I have become more and more interested in, so I decided to give Rule of Law by Randy Singer a try.
In all honesty, I struggled with this book. The book started off with a ton of action as the SEAL Team Six is on a rare mission ordered by the president. Houthi rebels in Yemen captured an American journalist and a member of the Saudi royal family. The SEAL Team Six are supposed to be rescuing them.
The first few chapters were high adrenalin that kept me on the edge of my seat and turning the pages as I followed the team on their mission. Then on a huge cliff hanger, it stopped and took me to a girl and her romance with one of the team members.
Unfortunately, this is where the story took a nose dive for me. I was hanging onto the pages of the book and then it switched gears to this romance. I honestly wasn’t that interested in it, especially the way it was told. On top of that, the romance became predictable.
While I felt for the characters, there were a lot of extra details that detracted from the story. I found myself skimming a lot of this book because I became disinterested at times.
This book ended up being an okay read. There were parts of the story that were engaging and kept me turning the pages, but there were also many times I just wanted to skip sections of the story and all the extra details.
