John Cann could never defend a war criminal - especially one he's seen engaged in horrendous acts. But when Arthur Matsen, a trusted friend, mentor and colleague needs his help, Cann must make an impossible choice. Forced to find the blurred boundaries between blind trust and what is seen, Cann is haunted by thoughts of Janie Reston, a young college girl savagely brutalized and left for dead all because of her connection to him. As Cann is consumed with complex legal and ethical issues, Janie is in grave danger. Will she fall prey to an unscrupulous psychiatrist intent on exploiting her horrific ordeal to further his own misguided theories of repressed memory?
In the dark places where past, present, and future collide, memory has both the power to transform - and destroy. Deeply textured, remarkably intense and resplendent with rich historical detail, A Grave Breach brims with raw emotion. With exquisite characters and a plot that moves deftly through time and place, A Grave Breach shines in its powerful portrayal of heroism, memory, loyalty, and sacrifice.

Loved the story and enjoyed the narration I was sad when it concluded. It was fun to look forward to this while running or on a hike. So many interesting characters.
