Lieutenant Sheila Worthy has been brutally murdered, and it's up to Major Kara Guidry, the top lawyer in the Judge Advocate General's office, to track down her killer. But Guidry finds she must tread lightly. Rumors have linked the dead lieutenant to General William Beckwith, once Guidry's instructor at West Point and now on the short list to become the Army's next Chief of Staff. Guidry must also contend with Beckwith's rivals, who would like nothing more than to see him discredited. As her former teacher pressures her for a fast solution, she soon uncovers a web of secrecy that obscures the truth and puts her career on the line.
