As he digs deeper into the investigation, Sloane confronts a law called the Feres Doctrine which prohibits a soldier's family from suing the government for his death. Contested nearly 3,000 times in the past 50 years, the Feres Doctrine has yet to be amended or overturned. Now Sloane is desperate to find a loophole. But as he examines the events that led to James Ford's death, he uncovers disturbing evidence of a powerful enemy playing a very deadly game - one that may put him and his family in dire jeopardy.
Compelling characters, jaw-dropping twists, and a dangerous hunger for justice make Wrongful Death an edge-of-your-seat audio full of hot-button issues and searing courtroom drama.

The first Robert Dugoni audio book I listened to was The Jury Master. While the narration was hard to take at times, the action was non-stop from beginning to end. The first three quarters of Wrongful Death could have used some of that action. Mediocre narration combined with an uncompelling storyline made it difficult at times to stick with the story.
That being said, it does pick up a bit toward the end. And while I probably won't listen to another Dugoni novel, I don't regret listening either. While Dan John Miller's narration seem mumbly at times, some of the character voices were very good. Much better than Robertson Dean managed with The Jury Master.
The audio quality itself was somewhat muffled and quiet. When combined with the mumbly narration, I found it necessary to crank up the treble in my car just to hear at times.
On the positive side, I thought that Dugoni did a nice job splicing in the Iraq "cut-scenes". Without them I don't think I would have been able to make it through the first part. They added an element of action and interest to a story that had its share of dull moments.
