Rule of Law by Randy Singer - Thriller/Suspense from Tyndale Publishing [Review & Giveaway]

ISBN: 9781496418166
$16.99 - Softcover - 456 pages
Tyndale House Publishing
My thoughts:  In America we are a country of laws and the "rule of law" is paramount to keeping our governing persons operating within the parameters established for their positions. Their decisions must be within the scope of the law in which they are to operate.

Anticipating a book written by an attorney entitled Rule of Law will definitely whet one's appetite for a legal procedural. Randy Singer's books have always been top-notch reads and he ranks amongst the best legal suspense writers of today. As anticipated, Rule of Law is loaded with development of court cases, deposition of witnesses, various courts scenes (including the US Supreme Court), and how attorneys reason through their statements for court.

But Rule of Law is not just about the court room and the attorney's work, it begins with the powerful scenario of a Seal Team mission and it's outcome. The story has a powerful backplot where the extent of the most powerful individual in the World, the U.S. President, and her chief of staff and the head of the CIA to wage war unsanctioned by Congress is exposed. How much freedom to work in the shadows does the CIA have? How far can the U.S. President go in ordering missions that are acts of war without the sanction of the Congress?

This book is long. This book is fascinating. This book is a terrific read. I recommend you find the time to settle in and read this story. It could happen.

About the book: What did the president know? And when did she know it?

For the members of SEAL Team Six, it was a rare mission ordered by the president, monitored in real time from the Situation Room. The Houthi rebels in Yemen had captured an American journalist and a member of the Saudi royal family. Their executions were scheduled for Easter Sunday. The SEAL team would break them out.

But when the mission results in spectacular failure, the finger-pointing goes all the way to the top.

Did the president play political games with the lives of U.S. service members?

Paige Chambers, a determined young lawyer, has a very personal reason for wanting to know the answer. The case she files will polarize the nation and test the resiliency of the Constitution. The stakes are huge, the alliances shaky, and she will be left to wonder if the saying on the Supreme Court building still holds true.

Equal justice under law.

It makes a nice motto. But will it work when one of the most powerful people on the planet is also a defendant?
