Publisher's Summary

Sean Drummond's superiors are exhausted by the political fallout that always seems to trail the Army lawyer's wake, so they loan him out for a year to a high-powered law firm to soak up civilian lawyering. Once there, his undiplomatic ways ruffle the firm's executives, his predecessor is murdered, and the firm's biggest client throws up a red flag. Soon, a series of grisly murders will pit Drummond against a financially-stretched mega-corporation desperate for a contract, and a foreign intelligence organization undaunted by the prospect of killing anyone opposing its aims.

Brian Haig is among the best thriller writers!

Private Sector is novel #4 in the Sean Drummond military legal thriller series and it is the only one of the 7 novels not available in unabridged audio format, so I'm reviewing the abridged audio version. The genres are legal thriller and suspense thriller. Drummond is forced by his boss to take a year away from his JAG criminal job to work in an elite Washington DC law firm which specializes in civil matters including government lobbying. His initial passive-aggressive response is easily foreseen. But then a JAG lawyer he has worked with in the past and who has spend the prior year with the same firm is murdered followed by other women being murdered in the same way by an apparent serial killer. The plot is multi-tiered and complex, but author Brian Haig pulls it off brilliantly. Private Sector is a great suspense thriller. Narration is also great.

Brian Haig has a great combination of humor and suspense.

The two readers were great at making you see the book in your mind.

Scott Brick should have narrated this!

What did you like best about Private Sector? What did you like least?

If Scott Brick had narrated this book as he has some of your others this may have gotten much better reviews, but these narrators where just plain boring!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Boring!

The Best Alphabet Crossover.

This is only the 3rd of Brian Haig's books that has been covered by audio (I don't understand why, they aren't even in sequence), I sincerely hope that it's not the last. This story involves the usual JAG and CIA, but the FBI, DEFRA and the Private Sector are also invited to the party and Major Sean Donovan finally gets to the bottom of the intricacies of the plot. I've finally decided that Sean is like a legal eagle equivalent of Jack Reacher or John Milton, crossed with Dan (Spider) Shepherd. So, if you like any of those characters, you're going to love Sean.

The ONLY downside is that there are currently insufficient audiobooks recorded. Mr Haig has written many more, I will have to now make the time to actually read the books. If my schedule allows! That's disappointing.
