Attorney Paul Madriani defends a soldier on trial for murder and unwittingly steps into a maze of secrets and lies that the government, and even his client, would rather leave undisturbed. Madriani is faced with arcane ballistics evidence, a so-called "double tap," two bullet wounds tightly grouped to a victim's head, shots that can only be made by a crack marksman.

I normaly will not have anything to do with a abridged book because they have been chopped up so bad that you lose the story line. I am glad I did on this one, just wish the unabridged book had been available.

A good listen! I don't know what I was expecting but this was not as smooth as I thought it would be. Always liked Cannell as a TV writer but this was not as well developed. Too maney spies, had everybody but the boys from Brazil involved.

I guess I did not understand what the author was trying to do or where he was trying to go. After I finished I wondered who was the dumbest him for writing it or me for wating for somthing more to happen.
